Trump Burns US Intelligence, Mattis Nowhere to Be Found

The Republicans may have decided to take the Trump Presidency down finally as the Washington Post reports on Trump providing classified information to the Russian ambassador and Russian foreign minister during the meeting they held last week. Did Trump burn US Intelligence sources and hand Russia critical intelligence information that could be used against the US?

Listen to this morning’s Democracy Now episode critically, as Amy Goodman said “After campaigning for the Presidency vowing to protect the nation’s secrets, President Trump is facing a major new scandal. The Washington Post reports he revealed highly classified intelligence to Russian diplomats at the White House. Even Senate Republicans are now warning Trump is in a downward spiral.

Are the Republicans and the political establishment becoming more afraid that a real investigation may lead to more uncomfortable relationships, including those between Kosher Nostra and Federal Court judges as well as war on terrorism “informants” such as Felix Sater, those with cooperation agreements who have been given a free pass to commit more criminal activity? Trump may now be more of a liability than a benefit, and the Republicans want to make sure they hold on to power, despite the fact that 2016 election may be proven as fraudulent and influenced through the ongoing investigation.

“The President wasn’t even aware of where this information came from,” said National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. Who was in charge of warning Trump about the consequences of providing Russia with the intelligence information? Was Russia collecting on a debt during their visit with Trump? Where is the Secretary of Defense, James Mattis? Shouldn’t he have warned Trump about Russia’s possible intentions?

Israel was the “source” of the information. Was this a true test that Trump failed, that will cost his “Presidency?” Who is to blame for Trump’s stupidity?

Maybe Mattis is not in front of the camera, but surprisingly, his cell phone number was leaked to the public yesterday, accidentally of course.

  1. VT is doing a great job of keeping Trump accountable, as is your duty as part of the 4th Estate. I’d be interested to why you think Hillary would be a better choice?

  2. LG & AZ: Agreed. But the VT author used Amy Goodman’s words only to report a relatively undisputed fact: “Even Senate Republicans are now warning [that] Trump is in a downward spiral.”

    With their own words, some VT authors just assert such facts. Others pass out highly-sensitive but public-need-to-know intel like party favors — with no sourcing.

    If you’re not a decision maker or clandestine community ‘member,’ then you might doubt it. Those decision makers and others who ‘need to know’ can usually verify the intel. The absence of Mattis is a fact, but its significance is intel — and only reported by VT.

    Notice that no one of significance EVER disputes what VT reports. All that you see is stuff about VT being “biased” or “anti-Semitic” — with NO evidence that any VT reporting is false. You two too do not dispute the facts – or the analysis. You just take issue with one non-essential source. That’s OK. ;-).

  3. Who gives a rat’s ass if ALL America’s crimes – oops, I meant ‘secrets’ (freudian slip) – were revealed to the world. ALL – 100%. America’s not-so-secret secrets, tend to be either crimes against humanity or crimes supporting crimes against humanity. Evil runs the show. Honest people at that level are screened out. Those few who make the cut, are immediately either thrown out the door or directly into a grave the minute their honesty cover is blown. The only “threat” to the United States of America is the United States of America. Nobody – no state in the world has any present, past or future plans of attacking the US. OK – save for a crazed fanatic or two, but even his own people – his four or five friends – regard him as coo-coo and are not about to commit suicide (which is exactly what it would be for anyone crazy enough to attempt such foolishness) along with Mr. Coo-Coo. 100% of US militarism is offense. The only time the military even so much as had a chance to defend was on September 11, 2001 and we know how well that went. So with respect to this article, “so what.” There are much more urgent and important things to worry about in this country than whether or not classified info is revealed. Even if that means CIA assets’ covers were blown, well boo hoo.

  4. Mr ED: Support for the analysis is in undisputed facts, which MSM reported only in part.

    Additional and stronger support for the analysis is in the hyperlinked articles of the second paragraph. You didn’t bother to read them did you? Naughty, naughty!

    The best support for the analysis is in “the dog that didn’t bark”: Trump Secretary of Defense James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. SecDef Mattis should have briefed & warned Trump. Where was Mattis? Ask him. Do you need his phone number, or do you already have it? ;-).

    No legacy media or Alt.Media outlet is reporting the absence of SecDef ‘Mad Dog’ as the significant fact that it is. Only VT. Nevertheless, for reasons quite different from VT, an MSM outlet is asking “When Will Trump’s ‘Mad Dog’ Get Put Down?” VT’s answer: Because ‘Mad Dog’ didn’t bark…

    You bark at imaginary parrots that aren’t there. Go back to AJ. Stop reading VT. Now. OK? Thanx.

    • Rebel O’Fuzz: Then stop reading both. Now. OK? Thanx. P.S. AJ also asked me to thank you. ;-).

  5. If Trump is impeached the globalists win and with a virtual certainty we can expect war with Russia-this within months. Is this what VT wants?

    • We don’t get to decide what happens. That is in the hands of millions of other people. There is no war on the table with this issue at all. It’s a political espionage story, of which there are many. What makes this one special is the irony of Mr. Reality TV show host himself is the star. You just can’t make this up.

    • CW: With President Tweet’s short-attention-span fingers remaining on the button and with Bibi’s guidance, WW3 is a virtual certainty. British betting oddsmakers put the odds of Trump being impeached & removed at “60%.” If Trump self-deports or self-aborts himself, that also counts.

      When American voters are polled for a one-word description of Trump, the most popular answer was “Idiot.” “Clown” and “Embarrassment” were close seconds. With his own words, Trump “Borked” himself.

      Only 29% approve of Trump’s firing of FBI Director Comey — while Comey was investigating Trump & Co. The 29% approval rating was before evidence began to emerge of Trump asking Comey to ‘back off’ on investigating Turkey/Russia-connected ex-NSA Mike Flynn — an Obstruction of Justice count that Nixon’s old Congress would include in Articles of Impeachment. Trump’s Nixon-like “tapes” will seal the deal.

      So, AJ’s globalists are coming to get you. Duck & Cover. Hide under the bed — before AJ does it first.

  6. I think the revelations on VT regarding the connections of Trump to unsavory people and the mob and cover up by judges and especially these to videos in the article by Ian and Gordon, and judge cover up by this author, mean the end of Trump’s presidency: 208,304 views 36,711 views
    It is only a matter of time now if the information in these two videos can be confirmed by an independent powerful prosecutor. This is what Trump has been trying to cover up by quick and successive firing of Preet, Yates and Comey. The Rethuglicans may be corrupt but they are not totally stupid. Trump is now persona non grata. They will be blamed if they don’t disown him pronto. His presidency is on borrowed time. Impeach him now.

    • WJ: Agreed. Trump is Toast — Done… Stick a fork in him (before he does it himself).

      The trick is to remove Trump before Bibi, Rotten-Child & Co. can use him to start WW3 — or before another 9/11-type false flag event, which Trump & Co. think might save his orange butt. Yes, it too is orange.

      Republithugs & Dummycrooks took down Nixon. Republithugs & Dummycrooks will soon take down Trump.
      But Trump can still “Make America Great Again.” Leave!
