Here is a continuation of what I said yesterday, I feel that there were some unsaid things.
There should be indictments against those who leak national security information. Let’s hope that some justice comes out of this chaos.
As I said yesterday, there are only two stone-cold facts that the media can report in this entire debacle. Michael Flynn’s communication with Russia’s ambassador to the US was intercepted. That happened, but we do not know who ordered it and how it went down. Obviously, the American people are entitled to know. Someone leaked the conversations between Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the press. That’s a felony. So, we need to know who the leaker is. Associated with that, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch finalized a change in how the National Security Agency shares raw intelligence, just days before Obama left office. We need to know why exactly that happened. The NSA sharing raw information with the FBI and CIA and other intelligence agencies, creates more of a potential for leaks. And that’s exactly what happened. Some of President Trump’s calls to the Mexican President, the Australian Prime Minister, and other high level officials were leaked to the press. So in effect, the Obama administration MAY have (I emphasize may) created chaos for the Trump administration by allowing unsubstantiated intelligence information to be spread across various agencies.
It’s subversion if that were done intentionally to harm the incoming president.
As I’ve said before, Congress must get to the bottom of the situation. There are ongoing investigations in the House and in the Senate to find out if Russian officials colluded with the Trump campaign. So far there is no evidence of that. We also don’t know anything solid about wiretaps and leaks concerning Donald Trump and we need to know.
