Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
A new day has officially arrived at the U.S. Intelligence Community. – Late Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) pulled the trigger on Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, providing him with his walking papers effective at the end of this month.
A more appropriate firing has never before happened to any employee of our federal government. Naturally, the corrupt coup d’etat supporters in our national news media went berserk. They all love Atkinson, given the key role he played in the whole fake impeachment hoax that distracted the nation’s attention from other crucial matters – like the Wuhan Virus – from September through January.
Here is the letter President Trump sent to Senators Richard Burr (RINO) and Mark Warner (D), the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, last night:
The President no doubt took this crucial decision based on the recommendation of Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennel. It is also likely no coincidence that the move comes just a few days after former Congressman Mark Meadows assumed the job of President Trump’s Chief of Staff. So, let’s all give Mr. Grennel and Mr. Meadows a standing round of applause as well.
Atkinson, remember is the corrupt Obama holdover who last August single-handedly enabled the entire impeachment hoax to move forward based on the anonymous, hearsay “whistleblower” complaint by surreptitiously changing the IC’s whistleblower rules to allow second-hand information. As reported this morning by Gateway Pundit:
Atkinson saw to it that the whistleblower form was updated to allow for second hand information, which the ‘whistleblower’ (believed to be Eric Ciaramella) provided in his complaint. Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second-hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC), Atkinson accepted the complaint.
The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided. The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form but after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.
It’s important to note that Atkinson’s move came just days after Schiff and his staff had coordinated with the fake whistleblower – Eric Ciaramella – to compile his complaint. Atkinson was obviously also coordinating his efforts with Schiff.
Let’s also remember that, after Atkinson was interviewed by Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style impeachment committee in September, the results were apparently so damaging to the hoax that Schiff has still refused to release the transcript of that interrogation to this day. Atkinson’s transcript remains the only one of the 29 interview transcripts still being kept under wraps.
Finally, the guys over at The Conservative Treehouse remind us in a great, comprehensive expose’ of Atkinson, that he was also singled out for criticism in last December’s report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz:
Also, in the recent FISA review by the OIG the DOJ inspector general specifically identified issues with the “accuracy reviews” conducted by DOJ-NSD chief legal counsel. Who was that former DOJ-NSD chief legal counsel? That would be current ICIG Michael Atkinson.
Currently, former CIA Director John Brennan is under investigation for his role in the FBI spy operations against the Trump campaign and administration. Brennan is being investigated by U.S. Attorney John Durham, an assignment from AG Bill Barr.
Few people have asked why it would take a U.S. attorney to conduct a review of the CIA considering ICIG Atkinson should have been doing that oversight already. The answer within that non-discussed dynamic points to the reason why Ric Grenell as ODNI was needed.
So today, as you find yourselves going stir crazy as you continue to hole up in your home for fear of contracting a virus, take just a moment to celebrate the great news that your President took the time and political risk in the midst of this crisis to rid our government of this corrupt, malign influence who has done so much damage within our intelligence community.
Uncorking a nice, cold bottle of champagne might be in order.
That is all.
