Such as this:
"The Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about the Trump staff dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would not longer have access to that intelligence."
(She's remarkably well-briefed on Trump for someone who left government to advise Hillary many months before Trump even announced his candidacy.)
"I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia. So then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew they were trying to also get information to the hill.
That’s why you have the leaking. People are worried.".......
They're worried? About what?
Were they worried that the new Trump administration would...
*cancel missile shield defenses for NATO allies?
*let the Russians firmly establish military bases in the Middle East?
*let Russia bribe an American Cabinet Secretary to gain control of American uranium supplies?
*let Russia conduct years of cyber-attacks against America with impunity?
*let Russia supply Iran with uranium and sophisticated missile systems to guard their nuke factories?
*let Russia bomb civilians without lifting a finger to stop it?
*allow Russia to destabilize Europe by helping to cause a massive refugee crisis?
*fail to support Ukrainians with arms to staunch Russian invasions?
Because all those and more were policy in the Obama Administration.
Remember that phony-baloney Arms Control Agreement with Russia that was cooked-up for Obama so the Nobel Committee could pretend he won the Cold War, because there is no category for "Being Elected While Awesome"? The Russians were allowed to violate that, too.
In other words, "We had to stop Trump because we were afraid he'd be just as weak, pliable, servile, anti-American and corrupt as we were with Russia!"
It's tantamount to this Catch 22:
Old and Busted: "We had to destroy the village to save the village!"
The New Hotness: "We had to wiretap the village to save the village! And then leak it!"
She can try to walk back her confession now, but you can't walk back eight years of gutless Pre-Emptive Surrender by a lying traitor.
Sorry--what I really meant to say was try the Cajun Ribeye with truffle fries and sauteed spinach at Morton's.
It's Vladimir's favorite.
|The Sound of Leaking|
"Mr. Nunes has said he has seen proof that the Obama White House surveilled the incoming administration—on subjects that had nothing to do with Russia—and that it further unmasked (identified by name) transition officials. This goes far beyond a mere scandal. It’s a potential crime."--Kimberly Strassel
