Trump opened Sergei Lavrov top secret information, jeopardizing source LIH *, who works for the exploration of the country - a key US partner. "This is a betrayal," - writes the American press. And it's not theater of the absurd, and a new level of fight against Trump, which, apparently, US intelligence agencies have entered.
Held at the US president's meeting last week with the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry does not release the American press - because it is now trying to inflate a new scandal. Washington Post published an article entitled "Bomb: Trump reveals the secrets of Moscow," which accused the president that at the meeting with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Kislyak he gave state secrets.
In the presentation of the newspaper story is as follows. Trump revealed information that the United States received from a key American partner through intelligence-sharing network:
"During his meeting with Lavrov Trump apparently bragged that he was more aware of the activities of the" Islamic State *. " "I get great intelligence. My people tell me daily news "- the president said, according to officials with knowledge of the course of that meeting.
During the meeting with the Russians, Trump began to discuss aspects of the threat that the US became aware of solely through the espionage activities of their key partner. He did not mention specific methods of data collection, but he told how the "Islamic state" realizes certain points of his plan and how much harm such a terrorist attack can cause under different circumstances. But, according to officials, even more worried about the fact that Trump called the city on the territory controlled by the "Islamic state," in which a partner of US intelligence found a threat.
... "Everyone knows that this channel is extremely secret, and the idea that the Russians transmit information about it in such detail, is alarming", - he said one former senior official in the US service to combat terrorism, in particular worked closely with team members of the national security Trump.
According to officials, the mention of the name of the city is a very serious problem, because Russia can use this information to determine the partner of the US or intelligence sources and methods. According to officials, the sources and methods may be useful for other purposes, including, perhaps, to gather information on the presence of Russia in Syria. Moscow may be very interested to find out the source and possibly interrupt his work ....
... In a broader sense, Trump did not have the right to disclose this information, because, in effect, it did not belong to the US ....
The officials refused to identify the above-mentioned partner of the US, but they added that the first partner has expressed his dissatisfaction with Washington's inability to maintain the confidentiality of information relating to Iraq and Syria.
"If our partner finds out that we passed is Russia without his knowledge or without his permission, it will be a powerful blow to our relations", - said one US official. "
What is in the dry residue? Trump spoke about some intelligence about the planned Igil * terrorist attacks - and at the same time mentioned a certain city on the territory of IGIL, about which information from the US-friendly intelligence appeared troubling Trump. Exploration is not called - but, apparently, it's the Israelis - at least this is written with reference to an anonymous former American official of the New York Times. Or the English - and then the use of the word "network" is understandable - there is a network of "Five Eyes" connecting the intelligence of five Anglo-Saxon countries: the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
And now Americans need to worry about two things. Firstly, this intelligence will take offense at Trump and stop sharing information with Washington, and secondly, the cunning Russians will calculate this source in the rear of the IGIL and, frightened, will probably surrender it to the "caliphate" - in fact, he can spy against Moscow. That is, Trump is not just a chatterbox and a godsend for a Kislyak spy, but also a traitor. As the author of the article in the Washington Post, Jennifer Rubin, "Trump critic and former State Department official Eliot Cohen told me:" For any such action would be fraught with resignation, even if everything happened by accident. And if it's done on purpose, then it's a betrayal. " What to do? Rubin continues:
"It is curious that someone in the administration found it necessary to divert this information, which will certainly cause resentment among the president. Of course, there are people in the administration who believe that Trump poses a threat to our security. We must be grateful to these patriots, but we also need to continue to investigate, and if necessary to remove from power the man who constantly discredited and demonstrates incompetence.
Tomas Rayt of the Brookings Institution said to me: "This is just the apotheosis of all fears. In recent months, we have heard that Trump is getting back to normal. But this is nonsense. In its surroundings there are people who are working around the clock to prevent a catastrophe; but eventually Trump chief, and he will do whatever he wants, no matter how crazy it was. " Wright continued: "We are blind and we dance on the edge of a precipice."
That is, it is clear that only the prompt impeachment Trump save America ... Despite the obvious absurdity of the whole and complete the above construction, Trump and his team have to immediately react to allegations.
First, the president's national security adviser, General McMaster says plainly that "a story that appeared in the evening - a lie. In any conversation period were not disclosed sources and methods of gathering information. The President did not disclose any transactions that would not have been known before. I was in the room, it just was not there! ". Then they say the same also present at the talks in the Oval Office of the Secretary of State and Deputy Rex Tillerson McMaster Dina Pauell. And after he and Trump writes:
"As President, I would like to share with Russia (to open a scheduled meeting at the White House), to which I have the absolute right to information about terrorism and security on the basis of humanitarian considerations. I also want Russia to significantly strengthen the fight against IG * and terrorism. "
In the Kremlin, all the reports on this topic are called regular nonsense - and it is understandable why. It's ridiculous to imagine Trump speaking to Lavrov-here, read, I have an intelligence report from Rakka. If Trump told Lavrov about the information about the upcoming terrorist attack - no matter who, Russians or Syrians - then this is not only no crime, but, on the contrary, there is only a completely natural attempt to cooperate with Russia in the fight against IGIL .
The desirability of such cooperation are constantly told in Moscow and Washington. And in recent months in this direction occurred real progress (it is enough to mention become after January regular meetings and telephone conversations between the two countries Chiefs of General Staff), which, however, Trump administration in no hurry to inform the press. And understandably so - that the attack because of the mythical "Russian ties", which was subjected to Trump does not contribute at all no mention of Russia.
It is clear that in reality, Trump did not cause any damage to any US security or the interests of the American intelligence or intelligence "key partner". All of this information is absolutely invented a special operation against the President of the United States. That by relying on the part of the US intelligence community holds the American ruling elite, which has almost total control over the American media. The establishment of this special operation switches have all borders - leak information about what is happening in the Oval Office is not happening for the first time.
The fact that Trump's phone conversations with Vladimir Putin did not flow was explained by the fact that during their conversations there is a minimal circle of closest associates. So, for example, at the first conversation there was a vice president, national security adviser Flynn, chief adviser Bannon and a spokesman. In the future, the circle of those present was certainly narrowed - especially after Flynn's resignation, which left just as a result of media reports (but not published) of his conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak. But Flynn wrote down when Trump had not yet taken office. Now, no American intelligence can afford to dump the results of listening to the current leaders of the state.
However, the current plum opponents of Trump came close to this line. And it is clear that Trump is renting (it does not matter that the information is false - the very awareness of the negotiation process, which is simply distorted correctly) is precisely the special services. Contained in the article Washington Post to the nameless "patriot" who organized the leak, can be a distracting maneuver. In the same article, it is reported that Thomas Bossert, the presidential aide on internal security and the fight against terrorism, contacted the heads of the CIA and the NSA to "minimize the possible consequences" of Trump's frankness. So the leak to the press, most likely, went exactly through special services - which, thus, are still not afraid to openly substitute and surrender their own president.
Simply put, Trump faced not just with sabotage and open sabotage, war intelligence agencies and "deep state" (the term used to refer to real power, could well be called a synonym for "Washington swamp" that threatens to drain Trump) against the White House . In this war can not be a truce or a draw - it ended in defeat and the defeat of one of the parties.
And, judging by the speed with which events are developing, will end within the next few months. Bringing the level of charges Trump to the absurd Orwellian scale, his enemies will get the same terrible force "out." That is, Trump actually reveal a conspiracy against him - with disastrous consequences for those who now coordinates the attack on the White House.
But the chance to organize Trump impeach his enemies do not have a minimum of 2019 years prior to the beginning (when after the next elections will meet the new Congress) - so that they can only force a way to eliminate the enemy. On Friday, President Donald Trump for the first time will leave America - he went to his first trip abroad.
