‘We are going to win’: Trump can’t do anything about FBI despite GOP memo – former CIA official

RT | February 4, 2018

The FBI need not worry despite the release of the GOP memo alleging the FBI’s surveillance abuse against Donald Trump, because the Bureau has been in the game much longer than the current president, says an ex-CIA analyst.

“I know how this game is going to be played. We are going to win,” Philip Mudd, a former CIA analyst told CNN, referring to a brewing conflict between Trump and America’s security services following the recent release of the GOP document.

Mudd, who also served as a deputy national intelligence officer for the Near East and South Asia on the US National Intelligence Council, added that despite the declassification of the document which outlines abuses by the FBI and the US Justice Department, Trump can’t do anything about the “hundreds of agents” working on the case of his alleged collusion with Russia. Apparently, Trump’s just not powerful enough.

“They [the FBI] are going to be saying (I guarantee it): You [Trump] think you can push us off this [investigation] because you can try to intimidate the [FBI] director? You better think again, Mr. President. You have been around for 13 months. We have been around since 1908,” Mudd said.

He also noted the security services’ reaction to the memo, saying: “FBI people are ticked.” He also described accusations of corruption issued against the FBI by no less than the US head of state himself, as “an attack on [its] ability to conduct an investigation with integrity.”

The four-page GOP file that has caused a stir within the US political establishment was initially commissioned by the House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-California) in mid-January. Trump authorized its release on Friday.

The document chronicles how the FBI and the DOJ obtained a warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page entirely on the basis of the so-called “Steele dossier” paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign through the Democratic National Committee.

Democrats, many mainstream media outlets, and a number of former and current FBI and DOJ officials fiercely resisted its publication. It also triggered a social media storm and sent Trump critics into meltdown. And of course, some even ‘found’ a Russian trail in these developments.

  1. The absurd and utterly hearsay Steele document was provided the compelling weight of evidence for treason only when it was accepted by the secret surveillance FISA court. The DNC, DOJ, FBI & mainstream media case for caging and hobbling the US Presidency is exposed as a vacuous house of cards. It comes down to they just don’t like him and supported someone else who was suppose to win. Now, however, other than Constitutionally through the Supreme Court and the Pentagon no remaining legitimate framework is accessible for arbitrating a resolution which does not rely on the consent of the inculpated, omnipotent and perpetual deep state. Trump playing Dorothy has succeeded in exposing that the Wizard of Oz directs the cover photos illustrating the appearance of wealth, freedom & democracy on the western empire. Will the SC & Pentagon defend the Constitution and Presidency or will they authorize the deep state and media to supply and window-dress an interim dictator? We break now for a message from our sponsor…. m\\

  2. “Nothingburger” memo was just a distraction to keep us from looking at/discussing (1) Trump’s defiance of Congress with refusal to enforce Russian sanctions, while (2) allowing ALL the chiefs of Russian intel agencies including one expressly forbidden by name to visit Washington, DC, for secret meetings with who knows who, about “terrorism”, while (3) Trump hints around at some “event” we need to “unify” us, and one of the badministration is overheard saying action in Korea could be helpful for the midterms… Trump is a traitor, running an active Russian spy ring out of the White House, and the GOP is complicit in treason because they all got bought with Russian money campaign/PAC contributions.

  3. This one is really funny:

    “They [the FBI] are going to be saying (I guarantee it): You [Trump] think you can push us off this [investigation] because you can try to intimidate the [FBI] director? You better think again, Mr. President. You have been around for 13 months. We have been around since 1908,” Mudd said.”

    It can be read as a confirmation of suspected widespread criminality, even prior to, and after, the era of J.C. Hoover.

  5. “We have been around since 1908.” With no legislative authorization. Instituted in defiance of the enacted intent of Congress that no such agency shall exist. Any president could shut FBI down with his signature.

    Note CIA secret police guy putting words in FBI’s mouth, “We are going to win.” CIA secret police guy goes on TV gloating over Trump’s certain destruction by FBI – FBI guys working for CIA on a longstanding CIA project to overthrow the elected government of Russia:

    CIA gave its FBI puppets an incidental task order: destroy this US presidential candidate with our coercive-intervention propaganda, we don’t want him.

    No one with half a brain falls for Trump v. FBI. This is CIA v. Trump.
