Retired General Michael Flynn’s canary trap pays off – yes a tangled web one weaves – and I am referring to my post of 18th February. (1)
A ‘canary trap’ is whereby suspect internal leakers are each given specific information – each ‘leaker’ has different information – thereby isolating that one leaker whose information is made public.
Amazed by the stupidity of certain people – if you do it once and get away with it – why tempt fate?
Talking about one Katie Walsh.
No longer an employee in the White House – and i.m.o. the White House leaker – the silly bird that was caught in a canary trap.
You must see that a lot of speculation was brewing – as to whom the ‘two’ people were in the intelligence community that had disclosed classified material to Chairman of the Congress Investigation Committee (Republican) – Mr Devon Nunes – (refer prior articles on the Uniparty) – investigating ‘Obamagate‘ – the Obama administration spying on Trump and his colleagues leading up to the election – and thereafter the inauguration.
Seems the ‘leaker’ identified the two ‘names’ to the New York Times – and now it has hit all mainstream media news bulletins.
Now after this occurred one Katie Walsh departs the White House.
The two people identified – included one Ezra Cohen-Warwick – this is where it gets interesting – as the story from Politico.com was that “Ezra Cohen-Warwick was going to be let go by the National Security Councils (NSC) General McMaster.”
“But Cohen-Watnick appealed McMaster’s decision – to two influential allies with whom he had forged a relationship while working on Trump’s transition team – the White House advisers Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner.”
“They brought the matter to Trump on Sunday – and the president agreed that Cohen-Watnick – should remain as the NSC’s intelligence director – according to two people”
“Cohen-Warwick is a thirty year intelligence operative who “was brought onto Trump’s transition team and then the NSC by a leading critic of the CIA: retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn – who was Cohen-Watnick’s boss at the Defense Intelligence Agency and preceded McMaster as the national security adviser.”
Cohen-Watnick and Flynn “saw eye to eye about the failings of the CIA human intelligence operations,” said a Washington consultant who travels in intelligence circles. “The CIA saw him as a threat, so they tried to unseat him and replace him with an agency loyalist,” the operative said.”
I could be wrong – it could be an April Fools Day joke – but one thing I am certain about is that there are a lot of problems in the administration – weeding out the Obama appointees whose loyalties lie with the old master.
In this instance Katie Walters was listed as a #NeverTrumper – recommended to her current position by the Vice President Pence – and the Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
Yes – it is an interesting combination of players involved – maybe POTUS is keeping his enemies closer than his friends.
Edit: Breitbart.com now running a story on Katie being at the centre of the leaks. Had to correct her name and borrowed photo from that one at Breibart.com.
