His name is Tony Shaffer, and he is a former CIA analyst. He went on fox Business and was interviewed by Deirdre Bolton regarding the leaks that have been coming out of the White House. He believes that these leaks are coming from both Obama White house holdovers as well as some Republicans.
That moment when real life becomes a spy action movie out of Hollywood, right?
Due to the recent leaks security clearances are now being denied after background checks fail and is also why tons of pink slips are being issued and staffers are being escorted out of the White House.
Shaffer also said that he believes Flynn’s resignation was due to leaks, and not for what he discussed with the Russians.
Tony Shaffer: “I would put this right at the feet of John Brennan and Jim Clapper and I would go so far as to say the Obama White House was directly involved before they left. Ben Rhodes and those folks… The Democrats are behind this and some of the Republicans are involved with the leaks. So I say ‘Bring it on!’”
I couldn’t agree more… run the investigation and get to the truth, one way or the other.
Former CIA analyst Tony Shaffer appeared on Fox Business Wednesday to discuss who he believed was behind the recent intelligence leaks resulting in the resignation of Michael Flynn.
“Are leaks by Obama a problem?” asked Risk and Reward host Deirdre Bolton.
“Absolutely,” Schaffer replied, specifically pointing to former CIA director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper and former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes as behind the leaks
“I’ve watched this very carefully,” Shaffer said. “When you have NBC reporting that they’ve talked to six officials who have seen the transcript, someone is basically giving away both sensitive methods.”
“Which tells me clearly that someone had to have access to that and that is a key issue. Who leaked that information?” Shaffer continued.
The former CIA analyst also noted that Flynn did nothing wrong and did not violate the Logan Act.
Who wouldn’t doubt that leftists did indeed target Flynn, however if Flynn was completely innocent of wrongdoing he wouldn’t have brought this on himself. He is just far too cozy with the Russians and that was his downfall that left him open for the attack.
Flynn is a highly intelligent man, he’s not stupid. He had to have known the call was being recorded. Just because he brought the word sanctions up doesn’t mean he was making some kind of pact with the Russkies. However, none of that matter now…why? Because Flynn was dishonest with Vice President Pence. End of story.
It was reported that the Obama administration adviser, Ben Rhodes has done his best to lead a secrety campaign against Flynn, and it has obviously been successful.
Why Flynn? Well he strongly opposes the Iran Nuclear deal. At least that is the reason that seems most plausible to me. The Obama loyalists created a plan and conducted their scheme behind the scenes to bring Flynn down. They injected damaging stories on Flynn right into the national media…a media that if I didn’t know any better was ran by Satan himself.
Of course I’m not saying that I condone Flynn’s lying. Stepping down was the right thing to do, however, the leaks are a criminal act and the people responsible for that crap need to exposed and then prosecuted.
“It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,” a veteran national security adviser told the Free Beacon. “This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.”
Look, President Trump needs to purge his ranks of any Obama loyalists, or Flynn won’t be the only one to be taken down in his cabinet…and I’m afraid that’s including Trump himself.
Anyone and everyone connected to Obama needs to get cut.
