For going on 3 years now....

you've been told NOBODY was investigating who made this leak of the Flynn/Kislyak phone calls to Ignatius.

The people who told you that were wrong.

Trump, Sessions, Rosenstein & now Barr & Durham have **KNOWN** all this time who the leaker is.
ODNI @RichardGrenell declassifying that list of officials who unmasked Flynn's name is preparation.

It is laying the groundwork.

It is preparing the battlefield.

Things are now at the point they can REVEAL who this leaker was.
This leak investigation was joined at the hip with so many other investigations also rife with national security issues it will stagger the mind when the entire story comes out.
You are watching the unfolding of the strategy of revealing at long last who leaked the classified intelligence intercept to the Washington Post.

They declassified the list & made it public because Durham is now at the stage where doing so won't compromise anything.
The leaker is ON THAT LIST.

When the indictments are unsealed, and the leaker is revealed, the dates will show the story.

You'll see I was right. They've known who the leaker was since 2017.

But you'll ALSO see why this had to be down slowly with the utmost care.
Far from there being a MASSIVE COVER UP underway, what was really underway was a MASSIVE COUNTERINTELLIGENCE STING on deeply embedded federal officials locked in a literal civil war with the new Trump administration.

Once false step, the entire US gov't could have collapsed.
HOW do you launch a MASSIVE counterintelligence operation against a cabal of federal officials & media people actively engaged in a huge RICO criminal conspiracy to overthrow a President?

For three years loud voices from the public gallery have yelled advice to Trump & his team about how they were going about this all wrong.

To hear the loud voices tell it, the leaker should have been revealed 3 years ago & this Pandora's box should have had the lid ripped off.
The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about Fight Club.

And the first rule of Massive Counterintelligence Sting To Save The US Government is they don't TALK about Massive Counterintelligence Sting To Save The US Government.
So none of the loud voices from the public gallery yelling advice to Trump had the first clue as to what was really going on.

Military style counterintelligence operations only work if they aren't blown & it's operatives are able to do their work without being exposed.
As I have said for 3 years now, Trump & his team faced what **looked like** an impossible task in Jan. 2017.

They had to assume control & get command of a US Federal Gov't that was full of powerful saboteurs actively spying on them & trying to take them OUT.
Let me tell you how you **don't** do that.

You do not CHARGE straight into the enemies guns, right into their prepared defenses and go down in a blaze of glory!

Which is exactly what every Conservative pundit moron out there was screaming for Trump to do.
By the middle of 2017 an endless, enthusiastic chorus had formed screaming for Trump to fire Mueller, fire Rosenstein, fire Sessions, fire EVERYBODY, FIRE ALL THA THINGS BURN IT ALL DOWN yadda yadda yadda.

In other words, useless emotional venting.
Trump is a realist. He's practical. Utilitarian. He has no used for useless dramatic gestures ending in abject failure.

So when he was faced with the PROBLEM of "How do I assume control of a federal gov't chock full of people out to do me in?" he handled that HIS way.
And no, charging straight into the enemy guns in mid-2017 and going out of office in a blaze of glory wasn't the strategy he devised with sharp people like Rogers & Flynn helping him put it together.

Sorry if that disappoints you.
You do NOT WIN a civil war to wrest control of the gov't from numerous highly placed seditious plotters while maintaining a functioning government by listening to pundits yelling for you to DO SOMETHING & charge into the enemies prepared defenses RIGHT NOW or you're an IDIOT!
This is what many refuse to understand, especially those that throw out calls to "burn it all down".

Trump had to maintain a functioning government to implement his agenda and Make America Great Again while simultaneously rooting out all these saboteurs.

Could YOU have done it?
So when Trump, after winning the election in Nov. 2016, during the transition, knowing full well what a dangerous situation he was about to step into in January, sat down to plan how he was going to accomplish this, he & some very SMART PEOPLE came up with a very good strategy.
Almost every narrative you've been told for 3 years that begins with "Trump had no idea what he was facing when he was inaugurated, he didn't know they were spying him or his team, he was caught by surprise by all of this & he's been struggling to catch up ever since!" = WRONG.
He **acts** like he was surprised, yes.

He puts out a cover story that he was SHOCKED to discover Obama was spying on him.

"Wow I **just found out** that....!!!!"

Yes he does.

He will put out a cover story.

He's very good at it.
Here's what every single Conservative pundit needs to pay attention to when it comes to trying to read Trump and what he is or isn't doing.

You **can't** go by the surface of things because TRUMP HIMSELF has demonstrated he will launch cover stories & make fake leaks.
Think I'm joking about that?

I'm not.

Trump himself boasted at his very first official press conference as President that he had just fed the media a fake leak.

And then he rubbed their faces in it.

He told them:

"The leaks are real...THE NEWS IS FAKE.

Did he not?
Let's take a poll.

Do YOU think Trump puts out cover stories and fake leaks or not?

Simple poll.

Yes or no?
The more time passes by, the more obvious many of these fake leaks & cover stories become.

But most people don't remember what the cover stories or fake leaks were from last month, let alone three years ago.

I do.

I research this stuff.

Trump has launched MANY cover stories.
What's that hand I see there?

Ask your question.

"Are you claiming Trump will deliberately mislead the media, even Conservative reporters?"

Absolutely that's what I'm saying.

Trump does not owe these people the truth. Many of them would actively sabotage him if they could.
From the column:

Understand this well: the DNC Media Complex will deliberately present disinformation given to it by its political masters to trick the public and place their political opponents at a disadvantage.
They use long-practiced Alinsky tactics with relish. It’s not about the truth – it’s about power.

...Trump knows the true nature of this, how the Democrats use the partisan media to lie about and attack their political enemies with lies, smears and disinformation.


Trump and his team will deliberately give the news media cover stories and rabbits to chase to keep them out of their way so they can get stuff down & nobody can leak or sabotage it.
And the biggest cover story of all is that the incoming Trump team had no clue they were being spied on, Trump & Sessions & Pompeo & Flynn & Co. why they just pranced into their respective offices in January 2017 like innocent babes lost in the woods, no idea at all.
I'm OK with the cover story.

It's useful. That's why Trump put it out there.

The best way to disarm an enemy trap is to pretend your not aware of it while you carefully walk around it as you lay traps of your own for the people trying to trap you.
And they TRAPPED the leaker of the Flynn call three years ago.

I'm going to belabor this point.

They've known who it was for 3 years.

Due to very serious & crucial national security reasons, they've had to keep that & the investigation of it classified until now.
This is what is going to blow people's minds when the indictment is unsealed. People are going to look at the DATES.

The Fake News Media and the Conservative News Media are going to have their jaws hit the floor at the same time.

They knew for THREE YEARS and it DIDN'T LEAK.
As I have said for 3 years now:

The Silent Professionals are in charge of this.

They don't leak classified information themselves as they investigate and prepare to prosecute leakers of classified information.

You didn't like that?

You have no idea how much I don't care.
From the column:

In stark contrast to the Mueller special counsel team and the strategic leakers at the FBI are the federal investigators and prosecutors that I like to refer to as the Silent Professionals.
Far from seeking constant attention and leaking to drive media narratives that can be weaponized against specific targets, these silent professionals just go about their jobs in the shadows. You don’t even know they are there, and that’s what makes them so lethal.
Washington has a leak culture. It is nothing short of astounding that someone of McCabe’s stature could be the subject of a federal prosecution using a grand jury for more than six months, and the investigation didn’t leak.
All those media people wailing “nothing’s happening” for the past year are wrong. Plenty is happening. It’s just that the people making things happen aren’t ready to tell you or their targets about what they’ve found and what they’ve really been doing just yet.
Remember, Durham was investigating classified leaks out of the FBI **long** before AG Barr tapped him publicly to lead the TEAM of US Attorney's looking into the origins of the RussiaGate Hoax.

You didn't know Barr had sent Jensen into the DC USA's office until he announced it.
back to the column:

As I wrote in an earlier column, every single top person in the Trump administration came into office after the inauguration in January 2017 knowing what they faced in the SpyGate plot.
Trump knew, Sessions knew, Rosenstein knew, and so did Mike Pompeo. The narrative that Trump and his team came into office clueless about the SpyGate plot is, quite simply, nonsense.

[This is me in September of 2018.]
Trump & his team came up with a plan to counter SpyGate involving a lot of deception & stealth investigations.

No matter what you think about that plan, or how you feel about it, whether you think the strategy is right or wrong, Trump had his reasons for doing things this way.
In the end, it comes down to whether you trust Trump or not, that he knows what he’s doing.

A whole lot of people who call themselves Trump supporters don't trust him. Deep down, they think he's a blithering idiot.

It's as simple as that.
So once again, I go on the record, showing you what I was saying in 2018.

Trump had a plan he was implementing to simultaneously

1) get control of the government
2) root out saboteurs & spies & prepare to prosecute them
3) implement his MAGA agenda

No idiot could've done it.
And then at the end of it all he has to get reelected.

He's going to accomplish THAT also, even as the usual loud voices from the public gallery wail he's doing nothing about vote fraud and Democrats are going to steal the election while he uselessly stumbles around.
The economy hasn't even come roaring back yet following this massive black swan event of a worldwide pandemic.

When it does, imagine what these current numbers climb to.

All liberal hopes this CCP Virus & their relentlessly attacking Trump would destroy him are now dashed.
Trump did it HIS way.

Rejoice, little flock.

Because victory is assured. They can't stop a thing that's coming.

I wouldn't want to be the Flynn leaker right now for all the money in the world.
