Investigators Suspect Contractors are to Blame for CIA Leak











The Wall Street Journal reports that FBI investigators will likely turn their attention to outside contractors as they try to determine who gave thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks – documents that reveal more about the CIA’s cyber-capabilities than the agency wanted the world to know. Sources also told the New York Times that FBI agents believe that a disgruntled insider is behind the leaks, as opposed to a state-sponsored hacker.

In the Times story, it was revealed that the FBI could interrogate more than a thousand people as they search for the culprit. The investigation will include interview with CIA employees and outside contractors who may have had access to the information published by WikiLeaks.

That information, which revealed that the CIA has backdoor access to widely-used technology such as smart phones and television sets, has caused a PR headache for several tech companies as well as the agency itself. According to WikiLeaks, the CIA can turn many popular devices and software programs into digital recorders, though there is no evidence that they have used those capabilities to violate the civil rights of American citizens.

Addressing just such a scenario, a CIA spokesperson said last week that the agency “does not do so.”

WikiLeaks has said that more information regarding the specifics of the CIA’s methods could be forthcoming, so the agency could be treading cautiously when it comes to denials and confirmations. They are doubtlessly eager to do some damage control, but they don’t want to say something definitive that inspires Julian Assange to reach into his treasure trove and pull out something to the contrary: “What was that you were saying?”

The Trump administration condemned the leaks in a statement Wednesday. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said, “This is the kind of disclosure that undermines our country, our security, and our well being.”

But Americans concerned about Big Brother suspect that it is not the disclosure that undermines our security but rather the CIA’s practices which are revealed by the disclosure. The publication of these documents will no doubt inspire another national debate about the line between privacy and security – a debate that we had after the Edward Snowden revelations of 2013.

In the meantime, it is perhaps a reminder that “privacy” and “secrecy” are largely illusory concepts in modern-day America, regardless of how we may feel about it. The surveillance state may not be as comprehensive as the hardcore conspiracy theorists believe, but it’s almost certainly broader than your average citizen would like to think.

    Looks like they have been spending too much time on offense and not enough time on defense. Perhaps they figured that nobody would be sinister enough to perpetrate the kind of cyber-snooping that they have been doing. Duh!

      Did ULTRA crack ENIGMA?

      • Justin Seine

        I believe Ultra was actually the term used to describe the intelligence gathered by breaking high-level Nazi radio and teleprinter communications, Alan Turing and his team of math geeks are credited with cracking Enigma.

      Okay, but WHO is going to investigate the investigators? And no none can convince me that there aren’t still plenty of ovomit’s people imbedded in our government!

      • Mike. You could not be more correct. Look who wrote this article. Contractors are not about to jeopardise their contracts with the government. For what purpose? Their companies are making money and they hope that will continue next year.

      • Excellent point. They want the little guy to take the fall while the black gay Muslim Chicago community organizer bathhouses in comfort. Electric chair for Obama. Sorry Ethel Rosenberg because you were Jewish you got fried straight away. Obama and Hillary must have their day

      • Timothy K. Toroian

        The Feds need to do the vetting of contractor employees. Contractors do a lousy job but do not have anywhere near the resources of Feds to check a background. Or, screw contractors altogether and only use federal employees for such sensitive jobs. And shoot anyone caught releasing national secrets. No crap about the people’s need to know. No matter how vile, our international activities must remain secret. EVERYBODY tries to do the international stuff we engage in. They may not succeed, but they try.

      • Get a fricking life idiot! YOUR beloved Obama — who famously bragged that his administration had zero scandals — crawled in bed with every single Tech giant, and then spent $100 billion tax payer dollars to gather, store and then use data to hurt everyday Americans. Lois Lerner and her IRS abuses ring a bell? And then if course, another of your heroes, the Queen of Corruption, Hillary Clinton, has done so much, for so long, against so many that we’d need an entire library to store all of the paperwork, files and testimonies against this witch!

        The Democrat party USED to stand for the common man, the blue collar worker, the downtrodden. Now they stand with socialists/communists, radicals, illegal immigrants and every other leftist fringe group in the world. Your party is a joke and your representatives — Obama, Clinton(s), Pelosi, Reid, Waters, Boxer, Hoyer, etal, are a stains on what was once a good and decent party.

        • John W Bletsch

          Amen! I voted Democrat 41 years because the Democrat party stood for working people and the common man. That started changing w/LBJ BUT THE WORSE was Obama and his blatant theft of the office and the complicity of every rep and Senator who just went along with the treason.
          President Trump is more an old party Dem than a Republican, he is standing more for the common man than any Democrat for over 50 years.

            Have you ever read Mein Kampf? It is truly shocking how closely the Republican platform is following it’s tenets. Facets of it have been slowly implemented on since Bush, Sr.’s declaration of the coming of the “New World Order”. It is fact that Prescott Bush was a Nazi sympathizer and business partner that lobbied his own congress to not take action against The Third Reich. Herbert Walker (grandfather of Barbara Bush ) was another. Any coincidence that Jr.’s name is George Herbert Walker Bush?. All three Bush’s are known Skull & Bones members. Might as well read up on them, too. These people HATE the American Ideal and our version of democracy as described in our Constitution.

        • theotherJimBrown

          You don’t even know what “Fascism” is. Suggest that you are the one that reads up before you throw around those kind of accusations. The “left” has a problem with “socialism” within their party. The “right” is the party undergoing a “fascist” takeover. Fascists (Hitler/ Goerbels/ Mussolini) were natural enemies to the socialists (Marx/ Lenin/ Stalin). It is why Hitler attacked Russia during WW2.

    Why are we using “mercenaries” (AKA Independent Contractors) with access to our top secrets and security? Is it a budget issue? How are we to be sure who/what and how those people are hired?

    Independent contractors should only be used to carry field operations that we do not want to held responsible for (assassinations, coups and other illegal stuff)

  • Rodger K. Shull

    well they got to blame some one. why not the contractors, someone had to hire them, an they were probably paid to, do the dirty work, for the past incompetent admin. An now they are on the hook.

    • Rosech Levy

      Rodger, I don’t think they would dare spy on the Clintons because the know the Clinton history of strange deaths, so they opted to live a wee bit longer and probably also took bribes. Shame on them and shame on us for not thinking and searching how we were being duped.

      • Brenda Sinclair

        so true many deaths ha s followed the Clinton 152 so far body bags, in 2016 there were over 10deaths, so for Obama to go against Hillary ,he be dead before he could say boo. Hillary and obama are in this together, last twitter Julian assange@Wikileaks put out was recent saying two officials close to pence are saying there will be a pence takeover of government, Hillary tweeted pence would be a pushover to go against her,seems pence got on news media said it was all a lie he was not involved, they either want to impeach trump or assassinate him and it is his own cabinet not an outsider , president Johnson wanted Kennedy job and power so bad, Kennedy was assassinated ,Cuba or Russians had nothing to do with it power and greed did,can this be history repeating itself? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9ca499f4aadff58b4b2e3a46c002e4db4428f9abd3e68cb86a6dfa8c2fc615f9.jpg

    Before we worry about dumb walls or even bridges or highways I suggest we harden our digital/ information infrastructure
    If Russians or Chinese or Koreans can hack the CIA and any other company/establishment they target (IRS, Target, NORAD, etc) what would stop them from knocking our power grids off or take control of our nuclear weapons.

  • Davywidetie

    Leaks are caused both by deliberate sabotage and complacency about it. Allowing a 2 person commitment to all contractor work, formal loggings and shirt or head worn cameras showing security detail exactly what functions are performed. Trusted employee’s must never be left on their own. All must realize and understand principles of security and follow-up, verification of work as well a being prepared at all times for search and seizure for clean sweep before leaving work stations or department or building. Overhead camera’s would understandably have limited access.

    • Rosech Levy

      What we have lost is our respect for others and our country. I never grew up with this conceit, lying, spying to this degree, and employees not respecting their employers as we see today. Almost everyone with their hand out, complaining about those who develop businesses that made them very rich, which has always been the American dream but not all of us can be that smart as those who have made big money. Where is our own self regard and taking responsibility that I grew up with. Why are we not helping each other in our neighborhood as we grew up doing because we accepted we were all the same people, no matter the color, the accent, the high IQ vs. a lower IQ, because we were all REAL people living in a REAL country. Once we get back our pride and regard for others, then we will see our country back on track. We didn’t need government owning/controlling us because we took on our own responsibilities.

    Well, frankly I appreciate both Assange and Snowden for bringing a harsh light on how we have been “managed” and just barely escaped from communism by the democrats/liberals/leftists evil elite globalists. Without their assistance, this country would now be down the toilet! Sorry, Pres. Trump, they did America and its citizens a great even huge favor to wake up us to how dumbed down we had become accepting all this as “nothings” and even not believing in Joe McCarthy because it was difficult for us to accept some could hate our country and our Constitutional freedom and rights to this degree. And then now we know we stupidly did not vet candidates for Congress in depth and allowed registered socialists and communists into our Congress expecting them to do the right thing, and now know most are there for their own enrichment and to screw us and wanting to control us! Those days are gone and we will never allow them tor return. Growing has not been fun but since when did growing become easy? We also complete REPEAL of the ACA and not an ACA with lipstick! Time our Congressmembers grew up and recognize another election is next year so they had better do what we sent then to do and stop thinking of themselves, their enrichment, their thinking they are gods, and smarter than we. Well, awake deal Congress because you are none of that!

What Obama and his allies are doing to undermine the Trump Presidency/Administration should also be examined as an act of treason. I think it is time that all Obama appointees and employees be removed and replaced with Americans who are patriotic and support the current Administration. Because of the destruction and route Obama took while in office, Trump should trust no one with ties to Obama or Hillary or the extreme left leaning Liberals. Past time to clean house if we are to continue to be a free nation.

    This should tell you exactly where the leaks are coming from since who ever the Democrats throw ‘under the bus’ tells you where the answer lies and ‘throwing your friend under the bus’ shows you how close to the truth we are. They are terrified.

  • Gerry

    Why would outside contractors have access to very classified information ????? The more I learn about our government the less I trust their programs. There doesn’t seem to be any accountibility or responsibility for any of their actions. Now I see why the demoTRASH and the rinos are so anxious to see President Trump out of office. They are scared to death that Prez Trump will stop their sleazy operations and try and bring some respectibility back to our government. Contractors should only have access to what they need and NOT the inner workings.

  • GET RID OF ALL OBAMA APPOINTMENTS AND YOU WILL GET RID OF THE LEAKS.

    SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    OBAMA HAS GIVEN BILLIONS TO MUSLIMS THAT ARE TRYING TO KILL US. ENOUGH TO REBUILD OUR MILITARY AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

    PRAY THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT GET READY, PRESIDENT TRUMP, BE VERY CAREFUL, WE HAVE WORKED TO HARD TO LOSE YOU NOW. FIRE EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH OBAMA.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REG. DEM. ALL MY LIFE, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP & WILL NEVER VOTE DEM AGAIN AS LONG AS THIS LYING CROOKED MESS IS IN D.C.

    HAS OBAMA SET HIMSELF UP TO BE THE HEAD OF A MUSLIM TRY AT TAKING THIS COUNTRY? BETTER THINK! HE IS A MUSLIM SETTING UP HEADQUARTERS WITH HOLDER IN DC, 5 MUSLIM CAMPS JUST ACROSS THE LINE IN NORTH VA. MUSLIM AND FEMA CAMPS ALL OVER THE USA, MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. HE HAS TAKEN BILLIONS OF YOUR MONEY AND GIVEN TO MUSLIMS AND HAS DONE NOTHING BUT DAMAGE THE USA. BETTER WAKE UP.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP FOR A TRY AT A MUSLIM INVASION OF THIS COUNTRY BY, HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SORROS AND THE BIASED MEDIA. READ ALL THE WHYS BELOW.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952. PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212. ALSO #8 US CODE 482, BARRING ALL INADISSIBLE ALIENS FROM THE USA GOVERNMENT WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NATION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY DID HILLIARY HAVE A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD AND TRAIN MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICKED THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY? PRAY THAT TRUMP WILL DO THIS.

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    WHY DONT THE BIASED MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT. PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION EACH DAY.

    I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM. SHARE THIS.

    • BOUNDERBOB

      Paranoia at its best. At least every other paragraph is pure BS

  • SouthernPatriot

    1. Fire the person responsible for violating the law. Prosecute. Put this person in jail.

    2. Prosecute any others that were involved.

    3. Fire the company. Take oversight measures to prevent this from happening again.

    4. Keep cleaning the swamp, down to the mucky bottom and then clean all the muck out, until firm soil remains.

  • richard

    democrats can always find someone else to blame , i wouldn’t look any furture then oboma trolls he has put in the cia and fbi,

  • David in MA

    Every dictatorship becomes paranoid and has to spy on the citizens, Obama is no different, and my bet is one of his planted stooges is the culprit in the release of CIA info and probably by a top operative in the CIA, a timed event to disgrace Trump.
    I hope the CIA does not try to cover up for one of it’s own on this, burn whomever it is and help drain the swamp.

  • JIMOFCT

    THERE IS NO WAY TO CONTROL “ABUSE OF POWER” by the bureaucrats in the federal executive branch agencies.

    Congress has for years become prone to pass legislation that transfers decision making to the protected class of employees in those agencies who do not have much in the way of constraints of any kind.

    “OVERSIGHT BY CONGRESS” IS BASICALLY A “JOKE”.

    Every instance of investigation “SINCE WATERGATE” HAS BEEN ALMOST COMICAL. There is almost always a call for a “SPECIAL INDEPENDENT PROSECUTOR” WHEN ANYTHING IS CONSIDERED TO BE REALLY IMPORTANT. THERE IS LITTLE THAT HAS ACTUALLY RESULTED IN A DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION FREE OF CONTROVERSIAL CHALLENGE.

    Congressional Committee investigation efforts seem to be useless. Oversight committee hearings are almost always fruitless.

    “FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUESTS” DON’T SEEM TO HAVE MUCH IMPACT ON THE EFFORT TO FIND INFORMATION AND IT HARDLY SEEMS THAT THE REQUIRED MAINTENANCE OF RECORDS IS A “SERIOUS ISSUE” FOR OFFICE HOLDERS:SO IT IS NOT SURPRISING THE BUREAUCRATS IGNORE THEM OR AT BEST DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT WILL BE “Saved” to be available for “REFERENCE OR EXAMINATION” by anyone else.

    SINCE THERE HAVE BEEN PLENTY OF INSTANCES OF A LOT OF “SMOKE” AND “NO FIRES” FOUND DESERVING OF ANY SERIOUS “CONSEQUENCE”; IT IS MORE OR LESS A GIVEN THAT AMERICANS WILL NOT BE WELL INFORMED WHEN “SITUATION NORMAL” IS – CHARGES AND COUNTERCHARGES FROM DISREPUTABLE OR AT THE VERY LEAST “CLEARLY BIASED REPORTS” BASED ON SOURCES CLAIMED BY “MAIN STREAM MEDIA – MANY OF WHOM THEY WILL SAY OR IMPLY ARE “LEAKS” FROM THOSE INSIDE THE GOVERNMENT “BUREAUCRACY”.

    BIG GOVERNMENT’S POWER NEEDS TO BE SEVERELY CURTAILED BEFORE WE DROWN IN THEIR CORRUPTION@!

  • William Doty

    That makes it easy. Fire all contractors immediately or/and don’t renew their contracts.

  • DonRS

    Of course, it HAD TO BE CONTRACTORS – no chance of implanted Obama MOLES at the CIA or any of the other “intelligence community” agencies attempting to damage Trump. That an OVERWHELMING number of the intelligence community contributed to far left wing DEMOCRAT Hillary!

  • DonRS

    History repeats itself! When any government agency is provided UNLIMITED FUNDING, operating in UBER SECRECY, UNACCOUNTABLE, WRAPPED IN the CLOAK and FEAR of SAFETY and SECURITY, Limited by a SECRET FISA COURT that OVERWHELMINGLY GRANTS EVERY REQUEST FOR WARRANTS to surveil ANYONE, ANYWHERE,at ANYTIME, for ANY REASON, TYRANNY INEVITABLY becomes the result. ALWAYS HAS, ALWAYS WILL, in support of their good intentions!

  • Greg

    Stop the spooks from invading the privacy of American citizens instead of a full court press on PR.

  • Lary Breeding

    “though there is no evidence that they have used those capabilities to violate the civil rights of American citizens.” Give me a break. Why does it exist if NOT to violate the civil rights of American citizens? We assume that our spy agencies are nothing but honest and filled with integrity when it comes to their business but lets be honest they are NOT honest and they have NO integrity when it comes to spying. Why does the NSA have so much power when it comes to approving patents on any software or hardware dealing with security? The government isn’t worried about our enemies getting access to the software or hardware, our enemies have their own. What they are worried about is American citizen’s getting their hands on it. If we had it then NSA wouldn’t be able to listen to our phone calls or read our emails or know anything else about us.

  • desert fox

    Look in you own house first…..trying to make contractors the scapegoat. Ask real Americans what they think of the FBI and The CIA. It has come to the point that you can’t be trusted. This entity thinks they are the Government. They don’t deserve the title of Justice.

  • Gary Smith

    Proably the ones hired by Obama

  • Cookie Vranish

    BS on this excuse! It was the CIA and FBI themselves!

  • GODBlessRealAmerica!
  • kbmiller

    Didn’t A$$wipe, ex pres. OHOMO order a lot of info. declassified just before he left.?

  • BLAME AND DEFLECT. FIRE THOSE WHO HIRED THEM.

  • To important not to search & read “64 Ways Obama is Sabotaging Trump” and “Color Revolution”.!!!

    This is a deadly serious war against President Trump as his Administration tries to rip our country out of the Neocon’s evil grips and as WikiLeaks is simultaneously and independently exposing the Deep State Neocons.

  • Luis Luna

    Water Board Obama and you will come up with the leakers

  • Statesman Patriot

    “Sources also told the New York Times that FBI agents believe….”

    So who is the leak source that gave information to the NYT? Is it coming from within the FBI? Comey and inside Obama faithfuls?

  • Rodzzz

    The usual tactic is to pass the blame on temps, computer errors, outsiders, the dog, etc. etc.. etc. Never the guy in the mirror.

  • Tiger

    Not going to stop. It is almost impossible to get all the fleas off the dog. These people are going to continue and they won’t stop until the day comes one is caught and taken to the full extent of the law and ends up in prison. Same thing with Sanctuary cities until one gets taken to the ropes the big mouths going to spew.

  • AL ELLIS

    Everyone knows he told Lynch to do the wire tapping so he would know what’s going on in the Trump campaign while still having “plausible deniability”. Everyone knows this so why hasn’t he and his cronnies been put into prison, and notice he has no shame over what he did. He clearly was trying to take over the nation, but Trump was brought forth to stop him. THANK GOD !!!! President Trump was successful.

    What gets me is President Trump is doing the same things Obama and Clinton (Bill) and nothing was said about them, but President Trump does the same things and all hell breaks lose, this tells me there is an underground Government and President Trump came along just at the right time and told/showed us the Rinos and Obama hangers on are trying to subvert our Government. They should be in prison, instead of a nice retirement. That’s another thing that gripes me about Obama, he gave Social Security recipients (aka old people) a .30% (less than 1/3 of 1%) increase on our retirement, but for himself he increased his retirement by $100,000 per year. Who did the democrats say he was for? Wake up dummies (democrats).

  • dahniuru

    I hate to believe, but I do, that all of the Intel Agencies make decisions they think are in their best interests first, and then maybe Americans best interests. If I were in a dangerous situation and needed help, I would not trust them to have my back covered…..

  • Elisabeth Day

    The “facts” are slowly trickling out, but it is clear there was collusion between the FBI. CIA, NSA & others to cover up the Clinton Foundation, and what the Obama administration was doing to sabotage the candidate Donald Trump which threatened the cosy situation of all the Washington insiders that were on the gravy train. What an absolute disgrace! They shud go to jail!!!
