Trump to amp up swamp draining after Flynn vindication

During a news conference on NBC this week, President Trump expressed his admiration for General Flynn and his anger about Flynn’s persecution. Trump is a truthful man in that he calls things as he sees them, says Brad Johnson, retired CIA Officer and President of Americans for Intelligence Reform. Trump did not know just how deep that swamp is when he got into office. He thought he could win people over and work together; instead he has seen the Intelligence Community willing to lie and break the law to bring him down. U.S. Attorney Barr, says Johnson, is the best thing to happen to the IC in years.

Brad Johnson it is May the eighth of
00:02
2020 President Trump spoke on TV last
00:07
night about the general Flynn case love
00:09
to hear your analysis on that yes he was
00:11
he’s been speaking out about it and and
00:14
this morning he was on Fox & Friends
00:16
which is a show that he likes and is
00:18
often especially when he was a candidate
00:20
for president would speak there every
00:23
Monday I believe it was and he was on
00:25
this morning again that’s kind of one of
00:27
his go-to news programs so he was on
00:29
there for about an hour and there were a
00:30
number of interesting things that came
00:31
out of it now the basis of this of
00:33
course is that the prosecutors dropped
00:36
the charges against general Flynn who
00:39
had been president Trump’s national
00:41
security adviser initially they had to
00:43
get rid of him because the now by giving
00:47
him I’m talking about the Democrats had
00:48
to get rid of him because he would have
00:50
been in a position to completely blow up
00:52
and not allow this Russia hoax thing to
00:55
go forward so they had to get rid of him
00:58
and so what they did this was instigated
01:00
actually interestingly enough it was
01:02
kicked off by President Obama passing
01:06
the word to Sally Yates who then brought
01:08
this up with Comey
01:10
or with that was done with Comey and
01:12
then it was passed down the line and the
01:15
man that kind of turned all this around
01:16
even though Flynn had basically been
01:18
cleared it was all sort of turned around
01:20
and put back on track for prosecution by
01:23
Peter Straub the then a head of the FBI
01:27
counterintelligence division their
01:29
intelligence division within the within
01:32
the FBI so that was what what happened
01:34
that he was forced into a deal and we
01:38
all famously heard the the the judge
01:40
didn’t like this plea deal because he
01:42
thought he was going to be putting an
01:43
innocent man in jail so now that he’s
01:46
been cleared the whole thing was dropped
01:49
the judge is definitely going to sign
01:50
this order it’s going it’s over and what
01:53
President Trump is said is great you
01:55
know an innocent man is finally being
01:57
cleared now out of all of that now a
02:00
couple of things observations about
02:01
President Trump I’m not suggesting
02:03
President Trump is simple in how he
02:06
views things but he’s a simple man in
02:08
the way he presents them
02:10
basically even though the left accuses
02:12
him lying and all this sort of stuff
02:14
President Trump says the truth as he
02:16
sees it all the time and that’s one of
02:19
the reasons he’s so popular and then he
02:20
can fill stadiums with forty and fifty
02:23
and sixty thousand people is because he
02:25
just gets up there and says it as he
02:27
sees it and that sort of sort of
02:29
truthful look at things is very fresh
02:33
and interesting for people so they like
02:34
it now it’s the same thing when he’s
02:37
talking to the press that’s just how he
02:38
is and now the press is always twisting
02:41
and turning and trying to present it is
02:42
that he lies and done it it up but the
02:44
president doesn’t lie now I’m not as I
02:47
said I’m not suggesting he can’t be
02:49
tricky on this stuff because well he’ll
02:51
say something again that he knows his
02:53
true or believes to be true that’s very
02:56
provocative to the mainstream media and
02:58
then over here he’ll quietly accomplish
03:00
a lot of the stuff that he wants to do
03:02
under the cover provided by this other
03:04
thing so I’m not suggesting there’s not
03:06
no manipulation and and then he’s not
03:08
outsmarting the press on a daily basis
03:10
because he is but he’s a truthful guy
03:14
now the reason I’m I played all of that
03:17
out is because part of what he said this
03:19
morning on the on the press was he said
03:21
I had no idea that this swamp was this
03:25
way I didn’t realize that was all these
03:28
people that are there and I didn’t know
03:30
how deep the swamp was and I’m going to
03:32
drain the swamp now that is a absolutely
03:36
pivotal change up till now and I’ve said
03:39
this a number of times the president has
03:41
always come into this thinking that he
03:43
was going to win people over and that
03:45
the Democrats once they saw he was
03:47
trying to do the best thing for the
03:48
country would you know at least kind of
03:50
drop their opposition and you know and
03:53
be willing to work with him and that the
03:56
the never Trump errs within the
03:57
Republican Party would be won over and
04:00
the mainstream media would see this and
04:02
be won over and at least kind of treat
04:04
him fairly he’s thought that all along
04:06
now season Swamper what dweller like
04:09
myself looked at that from the very
04:10
beginning as did
04:11
many people and said there’s zero chance
04:13
of that happening that’s naive and that
04:15
was naive on the part of the president
04:17
well-intentioned
04:18
good person viewing the world as he
04:20
thought it would be and absolutely
04:22
freakin wrong that’s been proven to him
04:24
now and so that is an absolutely
04:27
fundamental pivotal change in how the
04:30
president is going to go forward from
04:31
here now he finally recognizes that the
04:35
intelligence community as a whole the
04:38
leadership of these places are dead set
04:40
against him and they will lie cheat and
04:42
steal risk going to prison all of these
04:45
things we see them doing they will
04:46
absolutely break the law to get it and
04:49
that you just cannot allow it the
04:51
president sees that for what it is he
04:54
has a good Attorney General and bar
04:56
which by the way you know if everyone
04:57
recalls who picked us Attorney General
05:01
Barr and that was Trump he was the guy
05:04
that picked bar and bar has been the
05:07
greatest thing to happen the United
05:10
States since the election of Trump and
05:12
these other people that are around Trump
05:14
and a lot of these positions were not
05:16
picked by Trump he was trusting other
05:17
people to pick them that trust I think
05:20
has now been dissolved Trump is going to
05:22
take a much more proactive stance in
05:24
this he’s going to start replacing these
05:26
leadership guys that he has now finally
05:29
figured out a part of the swamp screwing
05:31
everything up and doing some illegal
05:33
activity along the way to get their
05:34
political goals done so this is
05:37
fundamentally important and I would say
05:39
keep your eyes peeled now because I
05:41
would say if you’re if you’re a liberal
05:44
activist in the federal government
05:46
fasten your seat belt because it’s going
05:47
to be a rough ride
05:55
you
05:57
