President Trump has kept his word while in office and one of the things he vowed to do was drain the Swamp. When he made that vow, it caused the Beltway in Washington, DC to collectively shiver and it made Americans cheer.
Since he has been in office, Trump has done what he has promised and has worked diligently at cleaning up the mess in DC. It’s a thankless job and a seemingly bottomless task, but Trump is savvy and he knows who is betraying America. He is also naming names.
The swamp is not just DC, it also includes Hollywood, the media, and corruption within our government. In my opinion, it also includes the Democrats and the radical leftist groups out there.
A number of these individuals have been charged with crimes and have lost their careers over being exposed. There are many more to come. The swamp is deep and very large. It will take a long time to drain it and a lot of effort.
Trump unloaded in a Fox segment and called these individuals very bad people. He’s blunt and to the point and I totally agree. The top three he mentions are no surprise: James Comey, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page. All from the FBI and all deeply involved in allegedly trying to oust Trump before and after he took office.
He also named Brennan, who is the former head of the CIA and inexplicably stills seems to have a top secret clearance as does Comey, Strzok, and Page. That shouldn’t be allowed if it is true. These were and still are to an extent incredibly powerful people who are villains in our midst. They have betrayed America.
President Donald Trump said that ‘bad people’ in the American intelligence community are ‘being exposed for what they are’ in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson airing Tuesday.
“Trump called out former FBI Director James Comey along with agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page in particular.
‘I also think that when you watch Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, when you watch all of the things that have happened–Comey, you take a look at that, and McCabe, who’s got some pretty big problems I assume, you look at the deception, the lies…’
“Trump also singled out the intel class in general, saying, ‘These are people that in my opinion are truly, they’re bad people, and they’re being exposed for what they are.‘”
Trump is absolutely right and as I have said before, in my opinion, the intelligence agencies should be rebooted. Gut them of personnel and force people to have extensive background checks and severe vetting before rehiring them. It’s the only way to gain control of this voracious beast. The left keeps pointing to the Mueller probe, but the real scandal here is that we have people in positions of incredible power that are trying to manipulate who is elected and who has control.
Just look at what has transpired since the 1990’s. You have Bill and Hillary Clinton conducting corrupt mafia-style activities unabated. They are never held to account and when evidence shows up incriminating them such as emails etc., it is covered up and swept under the rug. The same is true for Barack Obama and his minions.
They are treated as untouchables and that is not the way America is supposed to work. They are supposed to answer to the people and be subject to the same laws that the rest of us are. Trump is trying to implement that and they hate him for it. It’s long past time that Americans do something about this and we are extremely fortunate to have a president who is actually interested in justice for a change and not just enriching himself.
Tucker Carlson interviewed President Trump on all this and did a fantastic job as usual. He said that Trump also appeared less concerned with his critics and less inclined to pay “lip service” to neoconservatives in Washington. Trump was very candid on those he thought were behind all this and he’s judged the situation well.
President Trump trusts the intelligence people he has personally vetted. But those such as Comey, Strzok, and Page were there under Obama’s watch and they had an agenda whose goal was to see Hillary Clinton elected. Despite their most ardent efforts, Trump won the presidency. They did not stop trying to sabotage and unseat him and Trump is fighting back. It seems pretty clear cut to me that these people should have to answer for their actions against President Trump.
We need real justice here and that includes going after Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and all the others who conspired against a sitting President of the United States.
Their actions are nothing short of treasonous in my viewpoint and no one should be above the law. The question is, do we have principled leaders who will make sure that the rule of law is enforced and will they stay the course? Let’s hope so for America’s sake. Trump is naming names… they should start there.
