Spooks declare war on President Trump: 'He will die in jail'

chuck-schumer
John R. Schindler (@20committee) is a former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst and counterintelligence officer who clearly still maintains the worldview of the NSA — one that, despite a paucity of evidence, insists on Russia as an enemy of the United States who intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump. And although he no longer works at the NSA, Schindler nevertheless adopts the agency’s antipathy toward a sitting and duly elected POTUS, calling President Trump “a demented asshole” in a recent tweet.

In an ominous op/ed titled “The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins” for the Observer, published on Feb. 12, 2017, a day before Gen. Mike Flynn’s forced resignation from being President Trump’s national security adviser, Schindler writes:

“[T]he still-forming Trump administration is already doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. In particular, fears that the White House is too friendly to Moscow are causing close allies to curtail some of their espionage relationships with Washington—a development with grave implications for international security, particularly in the all-important realm of counterterrorism.
Now those concerns are causing problems much closer to home—in fact, inside the Beltway itself. Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration—not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump—that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust….
The president has repeatedly gone out of his way to antagonize our spies, mocking them and demeaning their work.

Next, Schindler trashes Mike Flynn, describing Flynn as “widely disliked in Washington for his brash personality,” “managerial incompetence,” “poor judgment,” and “preference for conspiracy-theorizing over intelligence facts” (probably a reference to Pizzagate). Then Schindler just about outright admits that it was the NSA that wiretapped Flynn’s phone calls with Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., which led to Flynn’s resignation:

“In pretty much every capital worldwide, embassies that provide sanctuary to hostile intelligence services are subject to counterintelligence surveillance, including monitoring phone calls. Our spy services conduct signals intelligence—SIGINT for short—against the Russian embassy in Washington, just as the Russians do against our embassy in Moscow. Ambassadors’ calls are always monitored: that’s how the SpyWar works, everywhere.
Ambassador Kislyak surely knew his conversations with Flynn were being intercepted, and it’s incomprehensible that a career military intelligence officer who once headed a major intelligence agency didn’t realize the same.”

Then Schindler redoubles on that secret 35-page “golden shower” dossier on Trump (so secret CNN reported on it and Buzzfeed published in its entirety) which was compiled by ex-British spook Christopher Steele from rumors, which Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had admitted is unverified. Schindler writes:

“A new report by CNN indicates that important parts of the infamous spy dossier that professed to shed light on President Trump’s shady Moscow ties have been corroborated by communications intercepts. In other words, SIGINT strikes again, providing key evidence that backs up some of the claims made in that 35-page report compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official with extensive Russia experience.”

Schindler also redoubles on the wholly unsubstantiated claim that the Kremlin had intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump:

“Now SIGINT confirms that some of the non-salacious parts of what Steele reported, in particular how senior Russian officials conspired to assist Trump in last year’s election, are substantially based in fact. This is bad news for the White House, which has already lashed out in angry panic, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer stating, ‘We continue to be disgusted by CNN’s fake news reporting.’”

Schindler then ominously asserts that the intelligence agencies that supposedly work for their boss, President Trump, effectively have declared war against him:

Our spies have had enough of these shady Russian connections—and they are starting to push back.

According to Schindler, thus far, the spooks’ war against President Trump consists of:

  1. The CIA denying a security clearance to one of Flynn’s men, Rob Townley, a former Marine intelligence officer selected to head up the National Security Council’s Africa desk. Townley was denied a clearance to see Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI), which is required to have access to SIGINT. Schindler maintains that new CIA Director Mike Pompeo endorses the Townley SCI denial.
  2. Even worse, Schindler claims that “some of our spy agencies have begun withholding intelligence from the Oval Office,” ostensibly because of Trump’s “lackadaisical attitude” toward the President’s Daily Brief (PDB), the most sensitive of all intelligence documents. Schindler claims that Trump has received the PDBs “haphazardly” and “has frequently blown off the PDB altogether, tasking Flynn with condensing it into a one-page summary with no more than nine bullet-points.” Schindler writes:

“A senior National Security Agency official explained that NSA was systematically holding back some of the ‘good stuff’ from the White House, in an unprecedented move. For decades, NSA has prepared special reports for the president’s eyes only, containing enormously sensitive intelligence. In the last three weeks, however, NSA has ceased doing this, fearing Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets.
Since NSA provides something like 80 percent of the actionable intelligence in our government, what’s being kept from the White House may be very significant indeed. However, such concerns are widely shared across the IC, and NSA doesn’t appear to be the only agency withholding intelligence from the administration out of security fears.”

That “Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets” is a reference to the persistent leaks vexing the Trump administration — leaks that most likely are the work of the NSA and other intelligence agencies. The same intelligence agencies now use those leaks as their excuse to withhold sensitive intelligence from President Trump. That’s chutzpah!
Schindler then concludes with giving himself a pat on the back, and a threat:

“I previously warned the Trump administration not to go to war with the nation’s spies, and here’s why. This is a risky situation, particularly since President Trump is prone to creating crises foreign and domestic with his incautious tweets. In the event of a serious international crisis of the sort which eventually befalls almost every administration, the White House will need the best intelligence possible to prevent war, possibly even nuclear war. It may not get the information it needs in that hour of crisis, and for that it has nobody to blame but itself.”

On February 15, 3 days after his op/ed was published, John Schindler sent out a tweet, saying that the intelligence community (IC) is going “nuclear” on President Trump, and that a message from a “senior IC friend” says Trump “will die in jail”.

On February 16, the Wall St. Journal confirms what Schindler claims:

U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.”

It appears John Schindler is another Anthony-Weiner exhibitionist pervert.
In June 2014, a text message conversation with a photo of a penis and John Schindler’s name atop it was circulated on Twitter. An unnamed blogger sent a complaint to the administrators of the U.S. Navy War College (NWC) where Schindler was teaching as a professor of national security affairs. Gawker obtained the emails the blogger had sent to the NWC under a Freedom of Information Act request. The emails refer to Schindler’s habit of calling himself a “spy”; detail his correspondence with an unnamed woman (who apparently received his penis photo); and accuse Schindler of staging “cyber warfare” against his online enemies, using “thuggish tactics” to silence NSA critics, and violating various federal laws.
NWC’s president ordered an investigation and placed Schindler on administrative leave. On August 29, 2014, the college announced that Schindler voluntarily resigned. (Source: Stars and Stripes)
Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan administration assistant treasury secretary, is so pessimistic about the war between Trump and the spooks that he declares the presidency of Donald Trump effectively dead. See “The Trump Presidency: RIP“.

Pray for President Trump!

Pray for America.

It would seem Schindler is painting himself into a corner. First, he pretty much sends out a threat, then in a very unprofessional way outed the NSA, whether is this true or not. The behavior from the left is repulsive and proves they have no right to lead anything, let alone a country. The more they protest and the more they scream about a connection to Russia makes me think it is a deterrent for something else. I think there is some serious money behind a lot of what is going on. This guy is tossing out bombs while hiding… Read more »

Gen. Petraeus, Bilderberg meeting attendee, would not be a good choice. Think about Philip Haney.

In 2014, Schindler was fired from NWC for pulling a Wiener. Seriously. Google it!
He’s not only insane — he’s a pervert.

Others “in the know” have suggested Trump should shut down the NSA. It could be done temporarily and then only hire back those and new prospects who can pass a lie detector test and other criteria. The NSA is too large and needs to be downsized. He has the legal authority to do this. The rogue elements are practicing sedition and are clearly traitors. In the private sector, employees who would withhold information in reports sent to their boss whether it’s on purpose or due to incompetency would be promptly terminated. Trump should secretly meet with only his most trusted… Read more »

That guy Schindler is a real piece of work. He’s blowing anti-Trump Libtard smoke way too hard, which makes you wonder what his agenda really is. His inflation of the importance of the work of spooks ‘n spies is probably a cover for int’l pedo rings. And shame on P.C.Roberts for giving the guy’s paranoia any credence. Wayne Madsen wrote about that guy & his fellow cyber-narcissists three years ago.

This is clearly evidence of an illegal attempt at a coup against a duly elected President. This is a crime that the intelligence community has conspired, and committed, abroad for decades; particularly in Latin America. This is an extension of a military/intelligence coup, a use of it domestically. The people choosing their elected leaders is the foundation of our democratic system. This is TREASON, hiding in plain sight, and, it is an example of the most serious crimes going unpunished.

Off-Topic: I didn’t yet get to watch Trump’s Sock-it-to-the-MSM press conference yesterday, but I’ve heard it was a doozy. Ann Coulter tweeted that she wished it could have lasted all day long. And big mouth Limbaugh even said it was The Best Evah! Then today, about 4-hours ago, @JackPosobiec tweeted that “Trump releases Mainstream Media Accountability Survey.” The link he provided is this one: https://action.donaldjtrump.com/mainstream-media-accountability-survey/ It’s quite detailed & only asks for a name, zip code, & email addy. At the bottom it says: “Paid for by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee authorized by… Read more »

They forget that the intelligence agencies work for the president, not Congress, not the Judiciary, and certainly not for the “4th branch.”
Trump should clean house.

Trump and those he can trust should look for proof of evidence of collusion with the group obummer is forming and the deep state.

Agree with TPR. Trump should take A.G. Sessions, Director Pompeo and ADM Rogers to the W.H. South, for a weekend. Talk on the golf course, as he did with Japan’s PM. The U.S. Secret Service might still have issues, but unlikely since the Chief resigned. Shut down the NSA . There are many Booz-Allen contractors, and they’ve all spun out of control, also probably infiltrated by CIA operatives for control purposes. ADM Rogers may already have advised Trump of difficulties (at Trump Tower). It scares me to think that deranged people, blinded by vengeance like Schindler are walking around in… Read more »

Unfortunately, Schindlers are very useful to to Shadow Masters, both here and in the UK.

It will be interesting to see the internal communication wars, which are internal and brought to somewhat public view. But remember….Trump is good for Israel and they run Mos’d….so…we shall see. There are many different types of ‘spys’ nothing new really. As far as ‘shitler’ he over stepped me thinks….
