President Trump battled the swamp for four years and as he neared the end of his presidency tried to release classified documents that would reveal just how deep the coup attempt went.
But both Gina Haspel of the CIA and Christopher Wray of the FBI, both traitors to the American people in my mind, stonewalled him until there was just not enough time to get them made public.
People who have seen these documents attest to their exculpatory nature for Trump and just how criminal the hierarchy at the FBI and CIA were.
Right now, half of the Obama administration should be at Ft Leavenworth, Kansas. It was a real coup attempt by Democrats as opposed to the three-hour riots in Washington that Democrats and the media falsely described as an armed insurrection.
Where were the guns? Nowhere.
Kash Patel, whose work on the House Intelligence Committee helped unearth U.S. intelligence malpractice during the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe, says he does not know why Trump did not force the issue. But after fighting the stonewalling for four years, he knew he could not get it done in a matter of days.
Look for Merrick Garland to fire Russiagate special prosecutor John Durham to further cover up the crimes of the many.
…he said senior intelligence officials “continuously impeded” their release – usually by slow-walking their reviews of the material. Patel said Trump’s CIA Director, Gina Haspel, was instrumental in blocking one of the most critical documents, he said.
Patel, who has seen the Russia probe’s underlying intelligence and co-wrote critical reports that have yet to be declassified, said new disclosures would expose additional misconduct and evidentiary holes in the CIA and FBI’s work.
“I think there were people within the IC [Intelligence Community], at the heads of certain intelligence agencies, who did not want their tradecraft called out, even though it was during a former administration, because it doesn’t look good on the agency itself,” Patel told RealClearInvestigations in his first in-depth interview since leaving government at the end of Trump’s term last month, having served in several intelligence and defense roles (full interview here).
Although a Department of Justice inspector general’s report in December 2019 exposed significant intelligence failings and malpractice, Patel said more damning information is still being kept under wraps. And despite an ongoing investigation by Special Counsel John Durham into the conduct of the officials who carried out the Trump-Russia inquiry, it is unclear if key documents will ever see the light of day.
