Recently we witnessed the resignation of a highly placed National Security operative for behavior that can only be described as insubordinate; information that was provided to representatives of our current government was less than accurate and as such placed the credibility of the VPOTUS and the United States in question. As a result, the person involved was “asked” to resign and did so.
On its face, this is a relatively straightforward issue. However, several security officials who spoke on condition of anonymity reported to the mainstream media that the adviser had been in contact with a highly placed Russian government representative during the administration’s transition period and may have lied to the FBI regarding the topics of those conversations. This is not in question. SIGINT intercepts/transcripts of those conversations exist.
“We the people” are guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by our Constitution. Each and every person that works inside of the federal government takes an oath of office that reiterates their responsibility to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It says that because internal threats are real. People have and will act against the best interest of the governed to achieve their own agenda. Unless we as a people are willing to blindly accept what our government tells us (which I am not), we must insist on a full and complete accounting of this fundamental breach in our national security.
“The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.”—Dwight D. Eisenhower. LENNY BURNETT
