HOW MANY COUNTRIES CONSPIRED AGAINST TRUMP?
POSTED ON APRIL 13, 2017 BY JOHN HINDERAKER
The Guardian adds to our knowledge of how the Obama administration and its allies overseas tried to discredit Donald Trump. …
[quote]Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.
Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said.
The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. Australia, a member of the “Five Eyes” spying alliance that also includes the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand, also relayed material, one source said.
Another source suggested the Dutch and the French spy agency, the General Directorate for External Security or DGSE, were contributors.
So just about every Western intelligence service was collaborating with the Obama administration in trying to elect Hillary Clinton. …
The blindingly obvious point that the Guardian tries to obscure is that the combined assets of all of these agencies failed to find any evidence of collaboration between the Trump campaign and Russia. We know this, because the Democrats have pulled out all the stops. Both before the election, and especially after the election, they have leaked furiously to try to discredit President Trump. If there were any evidence of collusion between Trump … and Russia, there would have been nothing else in the Washington Post or the New York Times for the past five months. But they have nothing.
What was really going on seems clear. Everyone involved in this story thought that Hillary Clinton was sure to win the election. …[/quote]
I suspect it wasn’t just the Ds, Libs, & Progs who were soiling their pants late 11/8/2016 and into the following day. These revelations must have (or maybe will) make for some interesting discussions among Trump Administration people and their Euro-counterparts.
