One America News Not Letting Up on British Empire Role in Coup Attempt vs. President Trump
April 30, 2019 (EIRNS)—Conservative cable news network One American News Network (OANN) yesterday followed-up its April 24 story on the central role the British Empire played in the “Russiagate” coup attempt against Donald Trump, by taking its demand for an answer right to the British Embassy gates in Washington, D.C.
OANN tried to contact the British Embassy before it broadcast its first story on April 24, on “how the U.K. surveilled Trump’s 2016 campaign, and then, through the so-called Five Eyes agreement, passed on the collection product to the Obama Administration.” That story was centered on an interview with former CIA analyst and patriot Larry Johnson. No answer.
After the President’s “Wow!” tweet on OANN’s story set off “an international firestorm,” OANN reporter Neil McCabe requested a meeting with the U.K. Ambassador or his staff. No answer.
McCabe then rang the bell at the Embassy gates, waiting for a response—filming, of course. A security officer told him the Embassy staff was “too busy” to meet.
President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani, however, confirmed to OANN that
“the legal team is pressing for a full accounting of how foreign intelligence agencies, like Great Britain’s, cooperated with the Obama Administration to spy on the Trump campaign and create the Russian collusion hoax,”
Giuliani told OANN:
“I am quite confident that after a full and complete investigation, it will be discovered that there was both foreign interference and there was misuse of our intelligence services and law enforcement agencies for the purpose of finding as much dirty information, even manufactured information, on members of the Trump campaign.”
McCabe pointed out that last week’s denial issued by GCHQ to President Trump’s tweet on Larry Johnson’s charges—that “the allegations that GCHQ was about to conduct wiretapping the then President-elect are nonsense”—denied a charge that no one had made. And that two years ago, when it suited their Russian collusion line, mainstream media played up the British role (he showed a CNN clip doing just that). And that, as mainstream media also reported, it was Britain’s MI6 and the Australians who “battled” to get President Trump not to declassify the surveillance records on Carter Page in September 2018.
McCabe promises that OANN “will continue to cover this story as it unfolds.”
