Mercy! Excuse our language here but yet another pound of horse shit has been dumped in front of us from the crusty morons running amok in the government, taking in six figure salaries for the likes of this…
As reported by CNN:
Last week in a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, CIA Director Mike Pompeo went further than any US government official in describing a role by WikiLeaks that went beyond First Amendment activity.
He said WikiLeaks “directed Chelsea Manning to intercept specific secret information, and it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States.”
“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo said.
We’re not sure if this is just more hijinks from the daily circus activities that appears to be the modus operandi of the Trump administration, given the recent insanity of the $100 million launching campaign of 59 missiles on Syria without any type of investigation of the attack – appears the guy with orange hair just felt like it, or he succumbed to Ivanka’s pleadings. Then he did a curtain call and ordered the dropping of the $170,000 MOAB bomb in Afghanistan, for what, we’re not sure; then the on again – off again – on again love affair of Janet Yellen; then more flip flops on China, and then…oh, enough of this. We know the rest of this excruciatingly mind-numbing narrative.
But we digress. Evidently, Mr. Pompeo forgot (yeah, right) about this little twitter gem of “loving” Wikileaks when it suited him:
Pompeo was grilled about that tweet during his confirmation hearing to become CIA director. Though he touted the hacked emails published by Wikileaks in July, Pompeo told Sen. Angus King (I-ME) he “never believed that Wikileaks was a credible source of information.”
But Pompeo should’ve known better than to publish that tweet on July 24. The Washington Post first linked Russian hackers to the DNC hack on June 14, with hacked DNC emails first appearing online the next day. Wikileaks itself published 20,000 hacked DNC emails on July 22, just ahead of the Democratic National Convention — but none of that apparently caused Pompeo to second guess amplifying their work two days later.
And just as a reminder, the guy with the orange hair loves Wikileaks – or at least he did when it suited his interests.
During a rally in October in Pennsylvania, Trump said “I love Wikileaks!” while the crowd chanted, “Lock her up!”
“It’s amazing how nothing is secret today when you talk about the internet,” Trump added, before reading aloud the contents of emails hacked from the Clinton campaign and leaked to Wikileaks.
Trump mentioned Wikileaks 164 times during the last month of the election.
Forget it’s not even a hundred days into this clown’s administration. How many more days before it turns into a full-fledged Marx Brothers skit (with all due respect to the Marx Brothers). Or maybe that was the intent all along.
But when the criminals want to get rid of a nice and tidy trail of their criminal activities – then it’s off with the heads of anyone who dares to give us the truth.
We’ve heard here and there that all this “criticism” of Trump and his administration is an attempt to divide his base and derail his presidency. Yet another joke. When the POTUS flip flops so many times on so many issues in just the first three months of his presidency; surrounds himself with nut-jobs and morons, appoints flim-flam artists to administrative posts who not only continue insanities from previous administrations but stir in their own special blend of lunacy – well, maybe the POTUS will come out of whatever Jedi mind trick that may have been played on him but it doesn’t take a genius (and this writer is certainly not a genius) to see that the man is simply winging it or maybe is just plain nuts!
And since there are no mensa gray cells here at the Asylum, we leave it to the pragmatic and deliciously brilliant Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, to put a smart and comedic period on this nuttiness ~
