National Security Advisor Gen. Michael T. Flynn (ret.) — who resigned Monday — was the victim of a “hit job” launched by intelligence operatives, Obama government holdovers and former Obama national security officials, according to former intelligence officials who spoke with The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.Story here.
The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.
“This was a hit job,” charged retired Col. James Williamson, a 32-year Special Forces veteran who coordinated his operations with the intelligence community.
I made this call (but included Democrats, Republicans and portions of the military) on the night of his resignation! I'm glad to see the obvious being stated openly by those in positions that will be listened to.
Of course this brings up a troubling reality. If I could see this from my chair then why did Trump request his resignation? Additionally it appears that our Intel agencies are not only politicized but going rogue.
On a different note have you been watching the news? Have you seen how the media is working overtime to try and cleanse the leaks by saying that these guys are whistle blowers and not leakers? I don't think its gonna work and the latest rumor is that Trump is going to purge the department of the types that participated in this idiocy.
I hope he does.
Eight years allowed the Obama Admin to taint practically our entire Intel/Defense communities. Its gonna take a lot of hard work to clean up the mess.
