Former U.S. Intelligence Official: National Security Officials Ready To 'Go Nuclear' On President Trump

David Edwards, Raw Story: ‘He will die in jail’: Intelligence community ready to ‘go nuclear’ on Trump, senior source says

U.S. national security officials are reportedly ready to “go nuclear” after President Donald Trump’s latest attack on the intelligence community.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday and Wednesday, Trump insisted that the “real scandal” was not that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lied about his contact with Russia. Instead, the president blasted what he said were “un-American” leaks that led to Flynn’s ousting.

On Wednesday, former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler provided some insight into the reaction of national security officials.

“Now we go nuclear,” he wrote on Twitter. “[Intelligence community] war going to new levels. Just got an [email from] senior [intelligence community] friend, it began: ‘He will die in jail.'”

WNU Editor: If the above post is true .... this is a huge story .... and is being duly ignored by the main stream media. When former and current intelligence officials are now openly talking among themselves about "destroying" a U.S. government that has been duly elected by the American people .... we are entering a very dangerous place.

Update: Former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler .... who is the focus of the above post .... wrote the following post  a few days ago .... The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins (John R. Schindler, The Observer).

Update #2: David Graham wonders if these type of leaks are a good thing .... Are Deep-State Leakers Defending Democracy or Corroding It? (David Graham, The Atlantic). Hmmmm .... when intelligence officials are openly talking about over-throwing a President who was only elected a few months ago .... especially when the U.S. is currently involved in wars and conflicts throughout the world .... some would call that as treason.

"This is not a question of the spooks stabbing the president in the back because he promised to shake things up and they don't like it. It's entirely possible that's part of it and Deep State players exerting their power that way is normally cause for great concern. But Donald Trump has not given any indication that he is an enemy of their prerogatives generally. He loves torture and thinks surveillance should be expanded to everyone. He wants Snowden executed. So the only beef they have with him is the fact that he called them Nazis on twitter and this reaction seems a little extreme if that's their problem.

Clearly something much bigger is at work here and it's not just coming from the jackboots and the spooks. Everyone in government, including some members of his own staff, is trying to slow down or somehow contain this narcissistic imbecile and his band of fascist weirdos. And that's not because thee leakers are a bunch of neoliberal elites trying to thwart the agenda of the one true voice of the working man. It's because what they are seeing unfold is scaring the living shit out of them"
