As to the so-called “intelligence community,” Trump has been set up, framed and relentlessly persecuted by this “community” that features at least one admitted illegal hacker (Brennan), and two admitted liars (Brennan and Clapper)-Sidney Powell, Former Federal Prosecutor, 7/19/18

7/19/18, Trump Has Been Set Up, Framed And Relentlessly Persecuted By The American Intelligence Community,” Daily Caller, Sidney Powell, Former Federal Prosecutor 

“The frenzied furor and fomented outrage over President Donald Trump’s reluctance to express blind trust for our “intelligence community” defy reason and reality. In their choreographed cries of contempt for Mr. Trump, the “left’s” increasingly shrill proclamations of political apocalypse make “Chicken Little” look rational. At least we’ve moved on from the impending annihilation from the nuclear war with North Korea. 

Power is the only thing leftists worship, and they are unraveling in front of our eyes without it. They can’t control Mr. Trump. That alone drives them insane. They have no policies that work. Cities and states they control are criminal sanctuaries and bankrupt cesspools. Check out San Francisco, Portland and Chicago. 

Each of the president’s remarkable accomplishments — from unprecedented high employment, our booming economy and the tax cuts to his historic summit with Kim Jong-un"...

[Ed. note: Also, passing both House and Senate, Trump rolled back draconian rules imposed on small and commmunity banks by Dodd-Frank:: May 22, 2018, Congress Approves First Big Dodd-Frank Rollback,  NY Times, Alan Rappeport, Emily Flitter: “Congress agreed on Tuesday to free thousands of small and medium-sized banks from strict rules that had been enacted as part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law to prevent another meltdown. In a rare demonstration of bipartisanship, the House voted 258-159 to approve a regulatory rollback that passed the Senate this year, handing a significant victory to President Trump, who has promised to “do a big number on Dodd-Frank.”"] 

(continuing): "— highlights their abject failures and serves to prick their narcissistic egos. The country is doing better without them every day. Even worse, they are desperate to keep their countless crimes and abuses covered up. 

We know that there are many honorable, dedicated and legitimate members of our multiple intelligence and law enforcement agencies who strive to protect us the right way every day. So, why might any of us not just declare blind trust for our “intelligence community” writ large? Let me count the ways. 

Aside from the fact that former CIA Director John Brennan does not even attempt to conceal his loathing of Trump, it was none other than Brennan who had the CIA spying on members of Congress—indeed the entire Senate Intelligence Committee. Surely, there were others in the Agency who helped him. [Yes-5 others] How many like Brennan are still there?”… 

[Ed. note: Five [CIA] agency employees–two lawyers and three computer specialists-surreptitiously searched Senate Intelligence Committee files and reviewed some committee staff members’ e-mail on computers that were supposed to be exclusively for congressional investigators, according to a summary of the CIA inspector general’s report.”…7/31/2014, Obama should fire John Brennan,Washington Post, James Downie, Digital Opinions Editor…And: 7/31/2014, The C.I.A.’s Reckless Breach of Trust,” NY Times Editorial Board:   “The Central Intelligence Agency admitted that it did, indeed, use a fake online identity to break into the Senate’s computers….The C.I.A. needs far more than a few quiet personnel changes, however. Its very core, and basic culture, needs a thorough overhaul.”] 

(continuing): “Ironically, while Brennan is coming apart at the seams over Trump’s progress in a diplomatic relationship with Putin, it is Brennan who supported a communist—voting for Gus Hall as none-other than president of the United States. 

Then there’s Director of National Intelligence [DNI] James Clapper—the second Trump-loather only recently departed from the top of the “IC.” Mr. Clapper is the guy who had the NSA collecting all possible data on all Americans and then lied to Congress about it. 

Even more important, according to Mr. Comey’s own memos leaked to the New York Times, combined with Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s “note to self” within minutes of Trump’s inauguration, we know that Brennan, Clapper, Obama, Comey, Rice, counter-terrorism advisor Lisa Monaco, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Vice President Biden, met in the Oval Office just before Comey went to brief the president-elect. 

Not only did they decide to limit information about Russia to be shared with the incoming team, they dispatched Comey to set up Mr. Trump for the media explosion of the entire false narrative and Steele dossier. 

On January 6, 2017, on instructions from Clapper, Comey met one-on-one with Mr. Trump in Trump Tower. Comey “executed the session just as [he] had planned.” He dropped the bombshell of only the “salacious” details of the Steele dossier.

He ran to his car to write down the details of the conversation, then he reported to Clapper and possibly Brennan, one of whom leaked it to CNN. Comey’s briefing provided the very “news hook” they all knew the media wanted to run with the existence of the unverified, Clinton-bought-and-paid-for dossier. 

That remarkable setup, by the highest members of our “intelligence community” and Obama himself, sparked the media firestorm of the Trump-Russia-collusion lie that has besieged the Trump presidency to this day. Indeed, that was its purpose—if not impeachment. 

Don’t forget Peter Strzok — the FBI’s lead investigator for the “intelligence community”— hardly the epitome of trustworthiness. Strzok is the self-avowed despiser of Trump and any possible Trump supporter. Strzok is the epicenter of the Clinton email “investigation,” the Russia narrative, and the Mueller team until last July. Discoveries of his innumerable venomous expressions of hatred for the president “clouded” the Clinton email investigation and compelled his removal from the Special counsel team. Even more egregious conduct compelled his physical removal form the FBI. 

I almost forgot. Comey, McCabe, Strzok, and Yates, aided by others in the “intelligence community” more recently including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, obtained multiple FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump team. All those applications were based primarily on the Clinton-bought-and-paid-for Steele dossier of lies. 

We wouldn’t want to omit Susan Rice, Obama’s national security advisor, who tripled the unmaskings of Americans during 2016 — grossly abusing the government’s surveillance apparatus to target the political opposition. 

Sally Yates, of course, used those unmaskings to set up General Michael Flynn who was simply doing his job. She got him fired from his new position as President Trump’s national security advisor, had FBI Agent Strzok ambush Flynn in an interview, and McCabe may have helped tee him up with false allegations for Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

And there’s more. As the chief judge of the super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court found in an opinion heavily redacted but unclassified last year, the Obama/Comey/FBI’s rank abuses of raw surveillance data of Americans extend back to 2015 (when Trump announced—if not further).

The court found egregious Fourth Amendment violations by the FBI and that it had given private contractors (probably Fusion GPS—Steele dossier creators—and Clinton-connected CrowdStrike) wrongful unlimited and unsupervised access to that data. The court so distrusted the FBI itself that it took access away from it, and NSA Director Admiral Rogers proceeded to eliminate the use of “about queries” completely. 

What was it Senator Schumer said? Cross our intelligence community and they have six ways from Sunday to pay you back? That’s not an endorsement of trust, but rather of fear. Now we know how the-man-behind-the-curtain keeps Schumer in line. 

Trump must be close to pulling back that curtain and exposing the “petty men” who “peep about to find [themselves] dishonorable graves.” 

At that moment in Helsinki, for Mr. Trump, the question of choosing between Vladimir Putin (ex-KGB despot) and Mr. Trump’s own experience of being set up, framed and relentlessly persecuted by the American “intelligence community” to this day, must have felt like the choice between Scylla and Charybdis. Either would destroy him, and no matter what he said, the Left would shriek the sky is falling yet again. 

Indeed, one must wonder if our president really feels there is anyone he can trust.”

“We know that there are many honorable, dedicated and legitimate members of our multiple intelligence and law enforcement agencies" 

Do we really know this? I’m not seeing much evidence to back up this worn out trope. The only person to blow the whistle on the IC shenanigans is Bill Binney. That’s it, one person. If these “honorable” Fedzilla workers were truly that, they would not allow themselves to be sucked into the Deep State BS. I think their only concern is their pensions – they could care less about this country.

And the leadership of those agencies are his appointees. And he can’t say he supports the rank and file as they are the people bringing the information to his political appointees.

“Sidney Powell is the best writing force on the scene today. Her book “Licensed to Lie” is the rallying cry against the existence and depredations of the Deep State. Pay the 7 bucks, get the book, sharpen the pitchfork and marvel how she gives chapter and verse to the sheer evil and viciousness of Muellers prosecutors.

They lie to federal judges, they withhold evidence, the torture witnesses in solitary confinement and then suborn perjury.

They threaten witnesses and threaten their families. After the book, it is amazing how Weissmann and the Mueller crew are not imprisoned. You will hate the government because it is evil. They are worse than the criminals. 

Judge Emmett Sullivan is a hero of the book and was on the Senator Ted Stevens case. The Deep State was able to get Ted Stevens out of office, a Democrat was put in and the Obamacare plan was passed. While the travesty of justice was happening, FBI agent Chad Joy, probably one of the bravest men in Christendom, stood up and said, Your Honor, the government is lying to you, and here is the evidence. It was one man with a conscience that changed the outcome. Emmett Sullivan dressed the government down for hours, and was furious about their unethical if not illegal behavior. He has now been on the Flynn case and he takes huge precautions when dealing with US attorneys, he does not trust them, I don’t think he ever will. 

Sidney Powell is the appellate lawyer and she is the champion. A strong mind and a stern pen makes you glad that she is fighting on our side.

“Do we really know this?”

We know this because they constantly tell anyone within the range of their voices that they are great patriots and strive to do their work with honor. 

It was probably too late to do anything about the alphabet agencies 50+ years ago. FBI alone has 35,000 employees and a budget of almost 9 billion they deign to tell us about. NSA’s open budget is around 10 billion. Snowden said it was around 50 billion off the books per year for surveillance and data collection in 2012, if I recall. They can’t even tell us how many work for the NSA, it is estimated between 30,000 and 40,000. The NSA is the largest employer in Maryland.

“Great article, but sad. Pray for president Trump, his family, and everyone trying to bring light to the darkness in our government.As for what is really going on, I have a question: Who are our overlords? I originally thought the unelected Supreme court ruled us, but now it looks like the unelected Intelligence agencies have ultimate control?

And as a final side note about all the “Russia, Russia, Russia,” BS: They just finished hosting the World Cup of Soccer. While it is not as popular here, it was widely viewed around the world, and they ‘Russians/Putin’ do not look like the scary people the hysterical left is trying to make them out to be. But of course this won’t stop them from trying.

“Excellent article and excellent response in the comment section:Doug Dannger Old Hickory • 8 hours ago– Interesting how the intel community won’t pledge loyalty to President Trump but everyone in the alphabet agencies demand the President bow in submission to them.
