Tell Me Now reported earlier this week that Lt. General Michael Flynn was ousted from his post as White House National Security Advisor because he did not fully brief the Vice President regarding his phone calls with the Russian Ambassador.

However, a number of pundits with ties to the intelligence community believe Flynn was ousted by hostile forces working within the national security establishment including unelected spies and Department of Defense staffers.

One of those pundits, Eli Lake, called Flynn’s resignation a “political assassination.”

To make matters worse, Fox News is reporting that “sensitive intelligence reportedly is being withheld from President Trump by U.S. intelligence officials because they are concerned that the information could be compromised.”

This news follows Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatening President Trump. “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC. “So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

A spokesman for the unelected Office of the Director of National Intelligence has denied the claim that the intelligence community is keeping their secrets from President Trump.

“Any suggestion that the U.S. intelligence community is withholding information and not providing the best possible intelligence to the president and his national security team is not true.”

However, Damon Linker, a correspondent for The Week, pointed to the recent leaks that brought down Flynn, “These leaks are an enormous problem. And in a less polarized context, they would be recognized immediately for what they clearly are: an effort to manipulate public opinion for the sake of achieving a desired political outcome. It’s weaponized spin.”

President Trump has also targeted the intelligence community for illegal behavior.

If in fact these leaks are coming from within the Intelligence Community, they should be held accountable for their treasonous activity. Unelected faceless bureaucrats should not be running our government. There is a reason why our government was formed as a Constitutional Republic. It was to make sure the people are the ones who hold the true power, not bureaucratic elites and spies who make up the deep state of government.

One thing is for sure, President Trump must double down on his promise to DRAIN THE SWAMP and make sure these individuals are no longer able to send the United States careening off a cliff!
