WASHINGTON. None dare call it treason. Except for President Donald Trump that is. So says author Doug Wead after interviewing the president for his upcoming book “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency.”
Of the domestic spy operations conducted on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign by the FBI’s counterintelligence division and the CIA – undoubtedly initiated on the orders of President Obama – Trump told Wead:
“What they did… It was treasonous. The interesting thing out of all this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign.”
Oh, yes, treason.
The war against Trump
Democrats and never-Trump Republicans have waged a relentless campaign against Trump, accusing the president of being an intelligence asset of Vladimir Putin’s Russia – a treasonous act.
But what began as a political dirty tricks campaign by the Democratic National Committee, the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and Obama’s Deep State, morphed into a coup plot intended to remove Trump from office.
Uprooting the plotters
A matter of deep concern for the Deep State plotters is US Attorney John Durham’s expanded criminal investigation into the origins of their Trump/Russia counterintelligence operation.
Potential targets include:
- John Brennan, Former CIA Director
- James Clapper, Former Director of National Intelligence
- James Comey, Former FBI Director
- Andrew McCabe, Former Assistant FBI Director
- Peter Strzok, Former FBI Counterintelligence Section chief …
… to name but a few.
The fake-news media is beside themselves over the possibility their Deep State hires – Brennan (MSNBC) and Clapper (CNN) – likely face federal indictments and jail time. Outcomes that will further diminish what little is left of their respective network’s credibility.
And let’s not forget that when the FBI asked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for warrants to begin their spy operations against members of the Trump campaign, they submitted news stories as evidence. News stories based on leaks provided by anonymous FBI sources, along with Hillary Clinton’s bought-and-paid-for Steele dossier.
As members of the coup plot, the media has a very personal stake in presenting Durham’s findings and likely indictments as, first, conspiracy theories and, second, illegitimate.
This is why House Democrats have launched a secret impeachment inquiry, housing it in the basement of the Capitol Building. Portions of the proceedings are selectively leaked to the same press that Obama’s Deep State selectively leaked information about Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia.
The two-year investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller proved the leaked accusations to be false and the press who printed them to be useful idiots in service of the secret, unelected, undemocratic, US intelligence services.
The same shadowy organizations…
- … that dosed Americans unwittingly with hallucinogenic drugs they believed would someday give them the power of “mind control.”
- … that failed to foresee communist Russia’s firsts in advanced satellite technology and manned space flight.
- … that failed to foresee the rise of Islamic extremism.
- … that failed to foresee the fall of the Soviet Union.
- … that failed to foresee the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
- … that have and continue to collect every cellphone conversation and private email of every American under Obama’s PRISM program, a conduit of the Patriot Act.
- … and that ran a domestic spy operation against the 2016 Republican presidential campaign on behalf of a Democratic administration, a Democratic presidential campaign, and its national media appendages.
The same shadowy organizations the New York Times now describes as “institutions” on par with Congress or perhaps the church.
Strange new respect
It’s curious to hear the media, who until recently accused the CIA of torture in the waterboarding of terror suspects at Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay, and for years published stories of the agency’s possible connection to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, now attempts to sell Deep State plots to overthrow the nation’s duly elected chief executive as patriotic motions equivalent to waving the stars and stripes on the Fourth of July.
The walls are closing in and the end is near
And this takes us back to the subject of treason. The US Constitution’s Article III, Section 3 states:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.”
US Attorney John Durham has been overseas of late, collecting testimony from foreign sources regarding our Deep State’s international effort to stop Trump from remaining US president.
A constant drumbeat from our media is that Russia poses a significant threat to our electoral system and nation’s security. That its clandestine efforts in America are designed to “sow discord” among us.
And our media’s noisy thuds, if taken seriously, sound a lot like war drums. President Trump clearly takes their Russia claims seriously. And if we are in combat with the fiendish Vladimir Putin, then those who give “aid and comfort” in his war against us are, indeed, traitors.
And very soon, we will discover if a federal grand jury agrees with our aggrieved president.
