‘These are people … are responding to a higher call’ Yes, higher and beyond the constitution. Beyond the votes of the American voters. Worse is the clip of pompous Brennan. He thinks he is out of reach of justice. If so, we have lost our country. We no longer have a Republic but we have had suspicions of that already. We shall see.
From yesterday’s George Mason University forum on election security at the National Press Club:
No more beating around the bush. The Deep State has won this round.
The so called “Whistleblower”
A protégé of former CIA Director John Brennan has been identified by Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations as the so-called “whistleblower” whose claims were the proximate cause of the Schiff–Pelosi impeachment proceeding against Trump. Eric Ciaramella, the son of a bank executive and a 2008 Yale graduate, was evidently handpicked by Brennan in 2015 for the National Security Council as an expert on Ukraine policy.
At the White House, Ciaramella worked closely with Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, and also with Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden. Perhaps the most troubling revelation in Sperry’s article was that Ciaramella also worked closely with Alexandra Chalupa, a Democratic National Committee operative who, in 2016, left her DNC job to pursue her own “investigation” of the Trump campaign (See “Former DNC Official Partnered With Convicted Bomb Maker To Investigate Trump,” Daily Caller, March 21, 2017).
For weeks, Schiff and other Democrats have insisted that the identity of the “whistleblower” is a closely guarded secret, but sources told Sperry that Ciaramella’s identity was in fact widely known
Transcript of the first clip:
BRENNAN: “But there is something unique you have to agree, that now the impeachment inquiry is underway, sparked by complaint from someone within the intelligence community. It feeds the President’s concern and often used term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out.”
MCLAUGHLIN: “Thank God for the deep state.
I mean, I think everyone here has seen this progression of diplomats and intelligence officers and White House people trooping up to Capitol Hill right now and saying these are people who are doing their duty or responding to a higher call. It doesn’t — I guess it doesn’t — well, think about it for a minute, with all of the people who knew what was going on here, it took an intelligence operative — officer to step forward and say something about it. Which was the trigger that then unleashed everything else. Why does that happen? I’ll tell American people why that happens, this is the institution in the U.S. government that, with all of its flaws and it makes mistakes, is institutionally committed to objectivity and to telling the truth. It is one of the few institutions in Washington that is not in a chain of command that makes or implements policy. Its whole job is to speak the truth. It’s engraved in marble in the lobby.”
Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
