British Coup Crew Goes for Broke To Block President Trump’s ‘Bombshell’ Declassification Order

Sept. 18, 2018 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump’s “stunning” order to the Director of National Intelligence, Department of Justice and FBI to declassify specific documents related to the entire “Russiagate” coup operation run by British intelligence

“caught intelligence agencies off-guard, and it remained unclear Monday whether national security professionals would have any opportunity to challenge any aspect of the decision,”

NBC wrote frantically last night, after the White House announcement of the order.

Initial reaction from leading Democrats in Congress sputtered angrily along the lines that “the President had no right to undermine an investigation into his campaign or pursue vendettas against political enemies,” as the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Mark Warner, put it.

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff hinted that he hoped the coup network within the DOJ and FBI might be able to stop the release of these explosive documents in his Monday night tweet, writing that “the DOJ and FBI have previously informed me that release of some of this information would cross a red line.”

By today, both Schiff and President Obama’s former CIA Director John Brennan (who could face jail time for his role in British intelligence’s “Russiagate” fraud) argued that if key “resisters” within the intelligence community did not step forward to refuse to obey a lawful order from the President, the entire Robert Mueller operation to bring down the President could be lost.

Schiff named FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a CNN interview as the officials who had spoken of a “red line” if the public were given access to these documents. He escalated in a MSNBC interview, calling on Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats “to stand up to this President and say ‘no.’ They are not going to release material that they have committed to keep confidential to protect people.”

Brennan, speaking on MSNBC, said he is

“hoping that individuals of conscience are going to stop and prevent [the release] because I am concerned that this is just one indication that Mr. Trump is going to increasingly look for steps to take in order to further try to subvert the Mueller investigation.”

He specifically named Wray, Coats and Rosenstein as among the “individuals of conscience” whom he said must now make a decision, should the White House not relent, as to “whether or not they are going to just not follow that direction and be fired, or to resign.”
