Judicial Watch is ready to file legal action to expose the shadow government in the White House. Intelligence insiders have come forward over the past few days to describe what they call a “shadow government” of Obama holdovers. These past Obama employees who have been are leaking information to derail the Trump Presidency. In his final days in office, the Obama Administration changed the rules giving vast new access to classified National Security information to over a dozen federal agencies. The result is a soft coup of dangerous leaks. According to Judicial Watch, these are criminal violations of the Espionage Act. The allegations are that former President Barack Obama is still actively involved in this attempt to undermine President Trump.
Mike Flynn’s resignation is their first great success. Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Schaffer, formerly a CIA-trained defense intelligence officer, said in a Fox Business appearance on Wednesday: “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan, and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before they left.”
He also mentioned Ben Rhodes. Schaffer said it was clear that sensitive information that could compromise U.S. intelligence-gathering methods was divulged to the media as part of the campaign to bring down Gen. Flynn, by people who had access to top secret material.
That should narrow the list of suspects considerably. Of course, the list is not narrowed because President Obama, in his final days in office, changed some rules on who can access and handle top secret information.
Now Judicial Watch is just hours from taking critical legal action to stop these illegal leaks. This dramatically endangered our national security by dangerously leaking classified information. It’s unconstitutional, and it’s illegal. The Washington Free Beacon quoted “multiple sources in and out of the White House” on Tuesday to describe a “secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran.”
It’s interesting how news coverage is now driven by leaks from dubious sources. The accuracy from anonymous, unverifiable sources are above evaluation, and are impossible to fight. According to the Free Beacon’s sources, Obama loyalists are highly organized, and under the direction of former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.
