Elder Patriot – Lt Col Tony Shaffer (retired) is highly experienced intelligence and counterintelligence officer who recognizes an intelligence operation when he sees one.
His resume is extensive and includes, but is far from limited to, commanding and directing several key operational intelligence organizations involving Special Mission Task Force STRATUS IVY, that conducted direct support to Department of Defense compartmented activities (OSD, SOCOM, JSOC, Army) which was focused on offensive information operations. He was also in charge of Field Operating Base (FOB) Alpha, a joint DIA/CIA unit conducting classified collection and special operations support regarding terrorists just after the 9/11 attacks.
Schaffer is also an American patriot who detests the Deep State’s war against President Trump. That means he’s highly suspicious of Barack Obama and his abuse of FISA court warrants and unmasking of Trump confidants that has been confirmed was being conducted both before and after Trump’s election.
Much of what Schaffer knows comes from past relationships with other patriots who are still placed throughout our intelligence agencies. His comments are based on a deep knowledge of the facts even though he can’t always confirm his sources. Then again the left-wing mainstream media never cites their sources either.
When Schaffer was asked about the wiretapping of Trump associates, Trump Tower, and the unmasking that took place he was unequivocal in his condemnation of ex-President Obama who we now know authorized these illegal activities:
“This is Soviet-level wrongdoing.
“Look President Obama has moved up to his Potemkin village and moved in Valerie Jarrett.
This goes back to July of last year (2016) when rumors started on the dark net that even though the Obama administration was getting pushback from the internal mechanisms of the administration, like the FISA court, and by the way there is going to be a paper trail at the NSA on this.
And let me say John Brennan is probably involved in this. You’ve got to have three people on the inside doing this. I think what’s happened here is the paper trail that President Trump is referring to has finally showed up.
“What this indicates is the Obama administration was taking on the form, using their version of the FSB or the KGB, to go and target a candidate.”
It’s now clear that the three people on the inside were Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice, ex-CIA Director John Brennan, and ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. All three of these people met regularly with Obama and all three were well aware that they were engaging in illegal activities as evidenced by their repeated denials to Congressional investigators. It’s inconceivable that Obama wasn’t directing this operation.
Obama and his minions – first seeking to deliver the presidency to Hillary Clinton so that she would be in position to protect them from being held accountable for their crimes, and then after the election, working to bring down the Trump presidency before his administration could bring them to justice – are guilty of a multitude of felonies.
The Deep State protects its own but the election of President Trump has turned much of that upside down with many of the rats scurrying to protect them selves instead.
Lt. Shaffer characterized ‘Obamagate’ as being an “order of magnitude” worse than the Watergate break-in.
Shaffer went so far as to suggest that this could be the:
“First time an ex – president could be accountable for a criminal offense.
…I believe it is really possible he acted outside the range of his responsibilities, to use the resources of the nation-state for a presidential candidate. This really is, as I have said just before, North Korean dictator level of abuse.”
Obama is so arrogant that he believes he is above the law. Perhaps, if his IQ were a bit more in the range of President Trump’s he would be worried about the potential felony charges that he’s facing.
