‘U.K. Is Epicenter of the Coup Attempt of Last Two Years’
March 26, 2019 (EIRNS)—George Papadopoulos, one of those dragged into British intelligence’s desperate drive to fix the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, hasn’t forgotten that it was the British who ran (and are running) the operation against President Donald Trump, and him. Papadopoulos has been going after the British, in promoting his book Deep State Target: How I Got Caught in the Crosshairs of the Plot To Bring Down President Trump, released today. He summed up British responsibility in a pre-release on March 24 tweet:
“The person who introduced me to western intelligence asset, Joseph Mifsud, also introduced Alison Saunders (the UKs top prosecutor) to Bruce Ohr 4 days before the Trump tower meeting. I expose this person in my book. U.K. is the epicenter of the coup attempt of last 2 years.”
Others are demanding scalps, without yet targeting the British directly, but any serious investigation cannot avoid looking into the role of former leading MI6 agent Christopher Steele at the center of this now-exposed coup against the U.S. Presidency.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham announced yesterday that he believes a special counsel should be appointed to look into the origins of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Carter Page, in which Steele’s infamous lying dossier is reported to be central. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell endorsed Graham’s call today, saying that
“Senator Graham has raised a legitimate question.... It’s not inappropriate for the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, with jurisdiction over the Justice Department, to investigate possible misbehaviors.”
Wall Street Journal Associate Editor James Freeman published a call today for former President Barack Obama to be questioned.
“The Mueller report confirms that the Obama Administration, without evidence, turned the surveillance powers of the federal government against the presidential campaign of the party out of power. This historic abuse of executive authority was either approved by President Barack Obama or it was not. It’s time for Mr. Obama to say what he knew and did not know,”
Sen. Rand Paul likewise tweeted: “Time to investigate the Obama Officials who concocted and spread the Russian conspiracy hoax!”
The spirit of the day is expressed by Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute, who told RT:
“All of us were also exonerated, not just the President. It was a witch hunt. [Trump] knew it was a witch hunt ... perhaps one of the greatest hoaxes in U.S. history.... We were demonized, we were vilified for two years, called all manner of names.... Now that these people have pushed this false narrative, and have damaged lives, and have damaged careers, is this where it’s going to end? Are they going to have to pay for their crimes?”
