Neil Cavuto notes that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep Devin Nunes (R-CA) is blaming top Obama officials for some of the leaks that have been plaguing the White House, in essence blaming Obama for meddling in the affairs of the incoming and subsequently current administration.
Cavuto asks General Jack Keane, “What do you make of that, that the prior administration, or at least officials maybe still in the capacity to serve in this one, was and is behind all that?” Keane replies, “Well, I think there may be something to it. I mean the reality is that some of these transcripts that were released were actually released at the time we had President-elect Trump, he had not been inaugurated yet, and clearly the Obama administration had senior officials who are actually seeing those transcripts.”
He points out, “Very few people get to see actual transcripts of phone conversations and I think that’s what’s got this administration so concerned. And I can remember the President talking about, particularly his own phone conversations with world leaders were released to the media. And that cannot go on, I mean our President has got to be able to have classified conversations with world leaders to be permitted to do his job. So obviously they’re trying to undermine his capacity to do his job as President of the United States, and how shameful is that?”
Neil Cavuto raises the infamous warning that Chuck Schumer gave to President Trump after the election when he was criticizing intelligence agencies of “Be careful, ” more or less saying you might regret doing that. “It almost sounded like a threat and then lo and behold, all of these revelations come to pass.” He asks Keane how you weed them out, with his answer being a descriptive way of saying “it’s not going to be easy and it will take a while.”
Cavuto asks for Keane’s take on whether the new National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster should be extra careful in his conversations. Keane said that he had actually spoken with McMaster before the interview, and believes he’ll just be himself, what Keane described as the 800 lb gorilla he really is.
He described McMaster, saying, “He’s a combat experienced Veteran, a graduate of West Point. Very, very intelligent, very articulate. He’s a bit of a change agent, at times an iconoclast. He’s got such a strong personality, everybody knows where he stands on just about everything.” He also described his ability to work within a team environment.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later. Now and in the future, please look for me, Rick Wells, at http://www.facebook.com/RickRWells/ , http://www.gab.ai/RickRWells , https://mewe.com/profile/rick.wells.1 and on my website http://RickWells.US – Please SUBSCRIBE in the right sidebar at RickWells.US – not dot com.
