Going to ground: Who else has not been identified in this coup attempt against POTUS Trump?

By Charles “Sam” Faddis, AND Magazine/a>

In the world of clandestine intelligence operations, discovery is an ever-present danger. Operations are by definition risky. Operators, assets and projects are regularly compromised. You plan in advance for such eventualities, and you structure your networks so that they can survive adversity.

The loss of a source or even of several sources does not mean that the entire clandestine organization of which they are part simply ceases to exist. Assets that are “blown” are cut away. Remaining assets “go to ground” or are put on ice. Patience is key. The network waits out the scrutiny and resumes work when things have cooled off and attention has been drawn elsewhere.

Such, in all likelihood, is exactly what is happening right now with those individuals who were part of what increasingly seems to have been a deliberate, carefully planned effort to destabilize a sitting President, overturn the results of a free and fair election and, in effect, to stage the first coup in American history.

A long list of individuals has been implicated in participation in this effort, including the heads of the FBI, James Comey, and the CIA, John Brennan. Particularly within the FBI, numerous lower-ranking individuals have been identified and shown to be culpable as well. Yet, they all share one characteristic. They are all former government employees. They are all individuals no longer in federal service.

Is it possible that every single individual involved in this plot has now been fired or resigned? Perhaps. It is highly unlikely. This was a plot that appears to have spanned several continents and involved what appear to have been numerous sources and contacts with multiple foreign intelligence services. An operation on such a scale would likely have involved dozens of officers from multiple agencies, even if closely held.

Where are they all now?

Perhaps we could begin to answer that question by addressing some other questions first. Throughout the investigation into the origins of what is now being called “Spygate” there have been continuing references to the role of British intelligence in providing derogatory information concerning the President of the United States. Press reports suggest, in fact, that the British were heavily involved in this entire charade from the outset. That interaction was likely not handled exclusively and directly by the Director of Central Intelligence. Other senior officials must have been part of this including the Chief of Station in London. Who were they?

Within the last week the Italians have effectively gutted the senior ranks of their intelligence services, firing at least six senior officials. Press reports indicate that this is in response to information concerning the cooperation of Italian intelligence agencies with U.S. intelligence agencies in spying on the Trump campaign in 2016. If the Italians are in possession of information so explosive as to warrant the wholesale sacking of their senior intelligence agency leaders it must be pretty powerful. What is it? And who were these Italian agencies working with?

John Brennan, disgraced former Director of Central Intelligence has by this point been shown to have been one of the key individuals in the plot against the President. Brennan is out of government, but he was a senior official for decades at CIA, time during which he formed close relationships with any number of subordinates and, in keeping with the increasingly political nature of Washington bureaucracy, promoted and cultivated particular, loyalists on whom he could count. Who were those individuals and how many of them were part of this effort to overthrow a President?

The identification of those individuals involved in all aspects of this plot does not, of course, necessarily mean that they are culpable or that they understood what they were part of. A great many of them no doubt believed they were acting in the best interests of the nation and were simply doing their jobs. For them the reality of what was afoot is no doubt as shocking and nauseating as it is for most Americans. It is unlikely, however, that this is true of everyone concerned.

Some of the individuals involved with this attempted coup without question understood fully that they were involved in an effort to subvert the Constitution and steal an election. Some of them ceased to be “public servants” and became political partisans for whom all that mattered was personal advancement and political victory. Some of them abused their authority and broke every oath they had ever taken to protect this great nation. Some of them deserve to be prosecuted and sent to jail.

And some of them may very well still be sitting behind desks in Washington, DC, waiting, biding their time. They are not gone. They are not neutralized. They have not been brought to justice. They have simply done what operatives plan to do from the beginning of any operation should it prove necessary. They have done what they were trained to do. They have gone to ground, and they will act again as soon as they judge the moment right.

Acting in the best interest of the country as they try to overthrow a president and the will of tens of millions of Americans.
But then again no one was asking for a fundamental transformation of 50 million future democrat parasites either.

These traitors are NOT just in the IC. The insane black president weaponized the ENTIRE US Government, acedemia, MSM and beyond to not just take down President Trump. There is no word strong enough to show how I detest this man. Why? Because he proudly spoke of his intention of fundamental transformation of this country. And he has succeeded. The list of his tyranny is too long to enunciate. May he and 100 generations of his family rot in agonizing pain for eternity in hell.

To be fair, the one you call “insane black president” really didn’t DO much himself, he was just a puppet for the ones who DID want that, But he is a great figurehead to detest!

The organization, discipline, tactfulness, treasonous, slyness, and of course well documented attempt of a coup will be remembered as a “Day” as hollowed as the “Fourth of July”. When all the snakes are pulled out of their holes and marked for the rest of their lives as Traders we will need to have a new “Independence Day”– Maybe an “AG Barr Day” like “St. Patrick’s Day”–they both have removed the snakes.

President Trump must remove Christopher Wray immediately, as he is not acting like a servant of our government, but rather a protector of those who oppose and work to impeach him. It is one thing to know your enemy, but another thing to have your nation employ him.

Rest assured those at the top drove the Coup but it took lots of minions in the rank and file to make it happen… The simple way to get rid of them is to check the Civil Service records to see who hired/sponsored who…the chain will lead from top to the lowest slug…then, since it is almost impossible to ‘FIRE’ even bad people, Civil Service Regulations have another way…’Current Management under POTUS Trump’ Deletes the slots these people are in and ‘no re-hire’ recommendations are put in their records. From that day forward they are gone. If a few that… Read more »

I don’t believe that for a minute. There is NO 99% good guys in the FBI, those who weren’t complicit, covered up for those who were. If you allow a crime to happen and you don’t try to stop it, YOU’RE GUILTY OF THAT VERY SAME CRIME! AT LEAST YOU AND I ARE.

THAT’S THE LAW! THE FBI NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN AND EVERYONE FIRED. NOW!!!

A lot of players in this “coup” game ; find them , bring them before a grand jury and start the information flow . If ever “public servants -gone rogue” need to be exposed and severely punished it is ASAP! You’ll know Barr/ Durham et al are getting close; the chickens will be squawking and the MSM will go more nuts!

How on Earth did Brennan, a communist and worshiper of the illiterate pedophile, ever acquire the approval of the Senate in the first place?! Yeah, just confirm the nomination of someone who is a member of both of the most anti-American ideologies on the planet?

Everyone seems to assume this coup against Trump was the first time Intelligence and law enforcement bureaucrats have weighed on the democratic process. I’m not so sure. LBJ wire tapped Goldwater didn’t he? He used the FBI to do it didn’t he? There are other examples and strong theories about the CIA’s involvement in the JFK assassination, n’est pass? Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, we simply don’t know what we don’t know. And now we have a catastrophic fail. How we ask, did it ever go so far? How did such callous and casual incompetence contemplate such horrendous crimes against… Read more »

Welp, it’s the CIA and the FB effing I, they should have no trouble finding these people involved and all of a sudden not working there anymore, and drag their carcasses back and ask them some very pointed questions……………But I ain’t holding my breath…

Q said “FISA goes both ways”! I’m sure PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ARMY of Investigators didn’t wait till they “read about it in the paper” to begin THEIR surveillance of the POS oblama and his minions! Remember that “TWO HOP” Rule – works for US too! I think when the arrests begin there will be MANY empty desks/offices in MANY Government Agencies and CONGRESS! I’ve been doing research too – now have an ample supply of POPCORN, Seasoning Salt, and Orangeman Drink!! I’ve always preferred orange soda with popcorn!

This all isn’t over. If Democratic National Committee involved, then RICO statutes might apply, and the Democrat party might even be under judicial supervision.

AG Barr needs to fire FBI Director Chris Wray as he is obviously a Deep State plant. In fact I am betting the Deep State goes at least 3 layers deep in the FBI and probably deeper. The CIA is also rotten to the core. I retired from the Department of Defense in 2007 and if I had been forced to work for managers as corrupt as those running the FBI and CIA I would have resigned from federal service decades prior to retirement.

This does affect JUST Trump …. think how the Institutional Corruption effected EVERY court case these criminal enterprises testified in? A BIASED FBI means ALL FBI sworn testimony is questionable and unreliable. A BIASED FBI means every court case outcome in which the FBI has been involved is untrustworthy. A BIASED FBI means that everything from WACO to Oklahoma Bomb to 9/11 must be reexamined. The Feds/FBI did a criminally irresponsible job of investigating the Oklahoma Bomb and Sanilac county, with the Militia Culture permeating it. There were TWO militias up there. (1) The CITIZENS Militia, with 85 year old… Read more »
