""The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House."

No.

It's happened under every single president of the modern era.

The Intelligence Community is not monolithic.

What's happening now has always happened, since the creation of the modern intelligence apparatus.

We don't know and will never know the extent to which the FBI and CIA blackmailed presidents.

JFK was a sex addict, and one of his lovers was also in bed with Sam Giancana, the head of the Chicago mafia.

Both the FBI and the CIA used that to influence Kennedy.

George W. Bush and Obama had multiple secret national-security operations blown by the Intelligence Community.

Obama prosecuted more leakers than any president in history.

Carter and Reagan had to deal with trouble from their intelligence apparatuses.

What's happening now is actually much stupider than anything that even came before it.

This "coup" is retarded. It can't be justified on any level.

Trump made it into a merry-go-round of moronism and craziness.

In the past, presidents had to deal with semi-competent intelligence officials who exercised control over policy.

The people going after Trump are imbeciles.

Remember Comey saying "prostitutes peeing on each other" 300 times when being interviewed by George Stephanapolopuloulouspuslos?

Comey just came across as a pervert.

"Lordy!"

Matt Taibi has no grasp of history.

He also vastly overestimates the power of Trump opponents.

TRUMP HAS ALL OF THEM BY THE NUTSACK.

And he's squeezing harder and harder and harder.

The media wants you to think we're in a crisis.

We're not. This is various groups imploding while the president gets things done.

Things have been rotten in Washington since forever.

Trump is cleaning up the mess.

Of course it's ugly and depressing, but it's not a threat to our democracy.

The "coup plotters" are idiots who made the worst mistake of their lives.

I'll end with a quote from the Manchurian Candidate.

"They will be pulled down and ground into dirt for what they did to you and and what they did in so contemptuously underestimating me."

That would be Trump in 2020.

Count on it.

@ThomasWic Absolutely, and while many are addicted to the 24/7 news cycle and the instant drama gratification of social media, we will all be sitting here with our mimosas on the porch basking in the glory that is Trump and getting on with the business of our real lives! 🤩

@ThomasWic
I keep thinking that there's still like 12-13 months before the 2020 election. The 10 since Dems started running the House have been such a mess that I can't imagine how ugly they'll look by the time the debates happen. It does seem like the swamp is being manhandled like never before. It's hard to ignore how ridiculous people are getting.

@Leetjh @ThomasWic when all of the corruption is brought to light it will make the Congressional Post Office scandal look like child's play.

@ThomasWic
Look at the number of congressmen. Very few are talking. Only certain figures allowed to speak. They are parrots if asked and say illogical things. They look and are under control. Even the republicans.
But sSarge suggested the closed doors are meetings of desperation.

@ThomasWic

Funny that Xi said something similar today.

"China's Xi Jinping warns attempts to divide country will end in 'crushed bodies and shattered bones'"

@BuilderFredrick @ThomasWic

Xi's doing everything he can not to fall off that party beanstalk ever since Trump took back the golden egg-laying eagle...goose, whatever.

Xi, Fai, Foe, Fum!

@ThomasWic The IC may have manipulated a lot of Presidents, pols and others in the past, but this time they did something far worse: attempted to nullify the votes of 63 million citizens.
If they get by with it, there's no point in leaving home on election day.
Man, Trump won. Had to be divine intervention.

@ThomasWic

A super great thread! And comforting to all of us too.

@ThomasWic

I pray that the stigma of their crimes & the distinction of traitor is applied to all the coup plotters so that their name goes down in American history as such & their name is reviled like Benedict Arnold.

@ThomasWic Best thread ever. The Spy Museum in DC is a great place to visit for anyone Interested in seeing how far the schism goes. Detailed exhibits relate plots dating back to Washington's day.

@ThomasWic POTUS Trump, there's a great ring to that. He is the all-time winner.

@ThomasWic

Hi Thomas, can I retweet this thread on Twitter? They could use a little common sense over there!

@ThomasWic

I love it. The harder he squeezes, the more shrill and panicked they become.

"Grab them by the nutsack. You can do anything."

@ThomasWic

Nutsack-Love it. Such a good Beavis and Butthead word.

@ThomasWic They are imbeciles yes..yet.they still have too much power,...embedded they are trying desperately to hold back the outing of truth, we wait to see their exposure and ultimate defeat.

@ThomasWic
Trump, Dare I say it, made it
entertaining if you truly believe All Is Well

@ThomasWic Great thread. I usually have to read it twice to grasp it all. For me, if President Trump did everything they accuse him of and more I'd still vote for him.

@DonnaLea @ThomasWic Nothing you could do could take me away from my man.. My man.. haha.. Switched a word.. Name that tune.😁

@Jaime None of the crap they've accused him of compares to what they have actually done through the decades. @ThomasWic

@ThomasWic One of the biggest problems for the establishment elite on both sides is that we cannot unsee what we have seen. We cannot unknow what we now know. From my interactions with my Republican senator staffers, they seem to think Trump is just a fad and will fade away. Then all of us little lemmings will go back to the status quo.

@ThomasWic

I fear Matt dear has no notion, no knowledge and no inkling as to American culture, government and temperament.

He sees the universe through his 3rd world glasses.
