Hence the need for anonymity. Funny how that works, no?

S+F! I'm soooo sick of this treasonous president! I can't wait for EVERYONE to withhold their info!

Then we'll have a REAL working government, right?

I don't know why the OP used The Independent, when he could have linked straight to the source at Jared Kushner's news site/online paper, The New York Observer (unlike how his father-in-law has handled his own holdings, Kushner put The Observer into a trust) but here you go:

The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins

The author is John R. Schindler, who has the appropriate bona fides: PhD in history, senior analyst at NSA for 8 years, Boston Univ Senior Fellow, International History Institute, professor at the US Naval War College for the last 12 years.


Professor in National Security Affairs Department, responsible for teaching strategy and international security affairs, as well as terrorism and intelligence, with emphasis on Europe and the Middle East.


Do you feel warm and fuzzy when it's Breitbart that's citing him?

Intel Experts: Hillary Clinton’s Email Server ‘A Counterintelligence Disaster of Truly Epic Proportions’

First quote:


It feels like a floodgate bursting open. These experts are absolutely beside themselves over Clinton’s irresponsible conduct as Secretary of State. Former NSA officer John Schindler called it “a counterintelligence disaster of truly epic proportions.”


How about when Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is citing him?

Secretary Clinton’s “Marked Classified” Email Deception


John R. Schindler, writing for the Daily Beast, further underscores this point:

“What, then, does all this means for Hillary? There is no doubt that she, or someone on her State Department staff, violated federal law by putting TOP SECRET//SI information on an unclassified system. That it was Hillary’s private, offsite server makes the case even worse from a security viewpoint.


He was on the Clinton email server scandal early and wrote extensively about it for two years, right up until the election. You might want to keep all that in mind.

Fair question. Mainly I wanted something that was a summary of The New York Observer article since it was approximately 1650 words. I felt Jon Sharman of The Independent did an adequate job at around 296 words. Also I had the crazy notion people might be more willing to read the article if it was condensed a bit. =) Thank you for sharing information about John Schindler's background. I hope at least a few of the readers here will see this is much more serious than they are imagining.

If the public is getting the leaks they are imagine what else is being leaked to not the public. So it's possible but we should pan out and cover everyone and everything.

Many people probably by republican and democrats have much to gain on this from multiple angles. Trump I doubt if he ever would feed info to Russia so soon. So it would seem someone who has to gain from leaking things is the culprit on multiple levels.

In other words pointing the finger at Trump a little to soon me thinks especially with this IT guy stuff and all these rumors on the leaks.

This is the perfect example of how Hollywood can ruin people's intelligence


I like to call it auto-gaslighting. Putin supporters pretending the world is fake and their minds and their thoughts are the only things that are real.


One can argue this is a ok way to live with how crazy the world is. As a whole country..if true is a little much haha.

Well, the NSA should give Trump some sensitive false info, and see if the Russians find out about it.

Then, they'll know for sure.

That would be treason. President was elected by the people.

The intels would be reckless not to assume Flynn was acting on behalf of Trump.

Do you know, or ignoring that he is also not working
for the NSA, and is considered a critic of the NSA.

He also does not like Trump, no surprise there.

1 + 1 = 2.

I believe he was "let go" from the NSA for a violation.

The author of the piece is John R. Schindler.


Is that this guy?


Married US Naval War College professor put on leave after nude photo he allegedly sent to woman was posted on Twitter

Professor John Schindler at the US Naval War College in Rhode Island allegedly took a photo of his penis and sent it, along with the caption 'Got this?'

He also allegedly sent an email which said he was in a non-traditional marriage and was looking forward to meeting his recipient, whom he called a 'vixen'

Schindler frequently engages in heated exchanges with critics on Twitter and has deleted his Twitter account
He has been placed on leave and the college's president has ordered an investigation

I strongly detest Putin and anyone that supports him. The second Trump starts stepping on him like the little rat Putin is is the second he has my support.

Well said. All these (granted many just "alleged") connections between Trump administration personnel (including the President) and Russia, make me very nervous. Flynn is just one of the more obvious one's.

Trump doesn't even want to call Putin out on even the smallest thing. I assume the nasty rumors about Putin having something embarrassing on Trump are false. But, Trump's apparent bromance with Putin doesn't make me feel absolutely certain about that.

Get Bannon off the NSC too, and put the others back in that were removed, and that will make me comfortable that at least somebody is taking Putin-related issues seriously - even if when it gets to the President he just shoves it into the bottom desk-drawer (if not the mailing it to Putin).

I think so, unless there are two men that worked there
with the same name, seems unlikely.

So... that and he was "let go" from NSA.

ETA: Also noted he went from criticizing Hillary, to
criticizing Trump. Maybe he would have preferred
another Bush White House.

The NSA and all the 3-letters routinely keep the POTUS out of the loop on various issues, this should be news? It isn't...plausible deniability is older than dirt.

MORE TO THE POINT:

This is obviously a TRUMP communications strategy.

He plants the news that info is being withheld so he has an out when things go South - he was not properly informed. It's not that he didn't listen, or that he blew off the briefings - those awful terrible bureaucrats did not give him the information he needed to do his job.

A set-up.

Totally obvious.




A notion worthy a thread of its own seen in light of Michael Flynn resigning.

That's a total lefty thing. I cant tell you how many times I've heard them say, "reality has a liberal bias".
