Former NSA officer claims that American Intelligence agents have "considerable intelligence" of Trump team collusion with Russia.

Courtesy of The Independent:  

A former National Security Agency (NSA) counterintelligence officer says US agents have “considerable intelligence” of high-level Russians discussing collusion with Donald Trump’s election team. 

John Schindler, a security expert specialised in espionage and terrorism, tweeted : “Ahem: US IC has considerable SIGINT featuring high-level Russians talking about their collusion with Team Trump.” 

The former agent said that intelligence has been gathered from the NSA and its partners from intercepted electronic and communication signals. 

 Later, he added: “I’m confident that any serious investigation of #TrumpRussia will find enough intel to end Trump’s admin and send people to jail.” 

Once again these are unnamed sources, but I certainly think they are more trustworthy than the ones Trump relied on to accuse President Obama of tapping his phones. 

Now let's just wait and see what happens next.

    One IC person tweeted Trump will die in jail.

    We can hope this comes true.

      I think he'll be assassinated before this four years is over! He is hated throughout the country and world. His security had better be top notch!

      He is hated -- but at this point, I would think that the biggest danger to him is a special poison pen from a Putin crony for ducking this up so bad.

      And he probably knows it, too.

    3. Yeah? No. Impeached and removed before summer. Though there's always the sympathy-generating shooting "attempt." See: March 30 1981

    4. If anything would drive Trump to suicide, it would be impending incarceration. Once he's tried and convicted and the sentence is handed down, *that* and only that would be the straw.

      Until then, he would be in denial, denial, denial.

      It is beyond reproach that you so willingly allow these comments that go far over the line, gleefully relishing threats to the life of the POTUS.

      Secret Service needs to pay this man a visit:

    If what has already been put forth is true, "many going to jail," as was quoted earlier. I'll believe it when I see it.

      We may see a large number of convictions but also a large number of pardons and commutations. So, it may be that not that many actually go to big boy jail.

    2. Trump will pardon and commute them all until he is removed from office. Then Pence will pardon him.

      Who will share a cell with Christie?

      "A New Jersey judge ruled for the second time that a criminal complaint against Gov. Chris Christie can go forward, saying Thursday there's probable cause to believe he knew lane closings at the George Washington Bridge in 2013 were more than just a routine traffic study.

      Applause erupted in Municipal Court Judge Roy McGeady's courtroom when he said there was probable cause to charge the Republican with official misconduct for failing to act to stop the lane closures and subsequent gridlock, part of an alleged political retribution scheme against a Democratic mayor who didn't endorse Christie."

    1. My reading is that the Russians are sweeping the floors and scraping the barrels looking for something, anything they can hold over liberals. "See? Both sides do it!" That's always been the effective conservative comeback. I hope the top Democrats have been keeping their noses clean.

    What the heck does trump have to do to get bracelets!
    He is taunting everyone to come after him.

    I hope impeachment or treason charges are being implemented at some stage. My goodness, get rid of this sick , demented , evil pos before he starts having people killed!

      Agree with you, but
      please -- "Like snowball (comma!) he's (not his) headed for hell.

    2. He shouldn't mess with the alphabet agencies. That could be fatal.

    I just wrote this in the comments section of Dan Rather's Facebook site. Thought I might post it here as well. Some of the older readership might remember Emmet Fox and his deep insight of the United States and the American people. Circa 1932! I thanked Mr. Rather and then wrote:

    In 1932, the great visionary, Emmet Fox, wrote of the very unique 'Historical Destiny of the United States' saying (given her size and geographical location and many other factors) "There is actually only one real danger that can menace the safety of the United States. There is no enemy on the outside she need seriously fear. The only danger that can ever threaten her is that of grave division among her own people. The real peril would be if one section of the American people should quarrel so bitterly with another section as to make them forget the cause of national unity. Then, indeed, if that should happen, the house divided against itself might be made to fall; but in no other way. Should such a thing happen, it is not at all impossible that some foreign power would take advantage of her paralyzed condition to attack her."

    Well I don't know if I trust this Schindler person, however, I have felt that this story had some legitimacy from the beginning, simply because it first came out in Mother Jones last October, I believe. So my question is, can Trump be charged and convicted of treason, and do we still execute people for that? What Trump has done does seem like it has done more damage than what the Rosenbergs did, and they were executed, despite having very young children. And can Trump claim that his narcissism is a mental illness, making him unfit for trial? And what about Ivanka and Donald Jr., they do seem to possibly have been in on all the previous Russian mafia stuff, and I'm guessing that they have been aware of the close ties that their father has had. Despite probably having various issues of their own for having been raised by a narcissist, neither appears to have the disorder themselves, and really, they should have known (and shared) that their father was completely unfit for the presidency. And Kushner appears to be "in the know" also. And all four of them, plus Priebus and Bannon were apparently in the room (and Stephen Miller?) when Trump was having his freak out over Sessions recusing himself..........the only one of that group who I think may have a chance of being somewhat innocent is Priebus. Spicer and Conway should definitely be convicted of lying, though for some reason I feel that Spicer is not as guilty as Conway.

    As far as who the leakers bet is that it's Priebus and the Secret Service!

    If this information of Trump's collusion with Russia is truly out there and can be proven, it needs to come out. And NOW!

    Everyday Trump is in office he screws up, causes fear, and disrupts our democracy. He is a dangerous lunatic. Throw Trump and his three oldest kids in the middle of Siberia. Perhaps his buddy Putin will rescue him for being such a loyal scumbag.

      And up to the MEDIA to blow it out of the water. They are given their orders from above and, considering who owns most of network television, that's not going to happen. Which is where many get their news.

      I honestly don't see how any of these people can look in a camera and read the teleprompter. I would walk out in a heartbeat.
