Evan McMullin: President Donald Trump Is a ‘Domestic Enemy’

Evan McMullin: President Donald Trump Is a ‘Domestic Enemy’


Former CIA operative and 2016 third-party presidential candidate Evan McMullin took to Twitter and CNN on Wednesday to defend rogue intelligence agents who break the law to leak classified information, saying President Donald Trump “presents a threat to the country.”

In response to President Trump’s tweets earlier Wednesday, in which he alleged that elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency were engaged in “Russia”-style political operations, McMullin tweeted:

By oath, intelligence officials' first duty is to "defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.." https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/831853862281699331 


So, the real scandal isn't that the President of the United States of America appears to have been co-opted by America's greatest adversary? https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/831853862281699331 

The obvious implication was that McMullin believes that intelligence and law enforcement agents are entitled to break the law based on their own views that the President of the United States is a threat to the Constitution and in cahoots with Russia.
Mcmullen reiterated his views on CNN, where he purported to speak for the concern of the agents doing the leaking:
“I’ll tell you what their concerns are. There concerns are that Donald Trump presents a threat to the country because of his — what they see as his relationship with Vladimir Putin and the relationship of his team to other Russian intelligence officers.”
McMullin cited a New York Times report indicating that Trump campaign aides had contact with Russian intelligence — without also noting that the same report indicated there was “no evidence” that the “Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.”
He went on to make the very claim denied by the Times article, telling Baldwin Trump “ran a campaign that was assisted by a foreign adversary — our greatest foreign adversary.”
Pressed by host Brooke Baldwin as to whether there were “too many leaks,” McMullin said that intelligence officers were bound by an oath to defend the country and the Constitution against “domestic and foreign enemies.” That included “a security threat coming from the White House.”
An obviously sympathetic Baldwin then asked McMullin: “Are any of these people you’re talking to just even worried about him even getting intel briefings, period?”
McMullin said that they are — and seemed to admit, in the process, that he is speaking with intelligence officials who may be leaking information.
During the presidential campaign, McMullin was a leader in the “NeverTrump” movement, consisting of conservatives who rejected Trump as the Republican Party nominee. Though he hoped to flip Utah, among a few other states, to Hillary Clinton by relegating Trump to third place, Trump won in that state and elsewhere.
On Tuesday, Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol expressed similar sentiments, and appeared, in theory, to endorse a coup by the “deep state” against the “Trump state.”

Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.

  1. Let's DUMP TRUMP for the right reason:

    ANYONE with a working brain and who is reasonably well informed, knows that Dr. Alan Sabrosky [ex-USMC Officer] was correct when he stated that "It is 100% CERTAIN that Israel [Mossad] did 911!". Trump KNOWS it! - but Trump is a ZIONIST SLIMEBALL, Israel-LOVER and TRAITOR, who will COVER UP Israel's heinous ATTACK ON AMERICA! He will declare his eternal friendship and loyalty to America's GREATEST ENEMY and proceed to kiss "Bibi's" ass with great fervor whenever "Blbi" visits the WH! No matter what wonderful things he does for America, Trump deserves to HANG for HIGH TREASON, along with ALL the CONgress CRITTERS since Bush-it!

    Is it any wonder that Trump is an irrational Iran-BASHER [Israel's declared enemy], favors Israel's ILLEGAL Settlements policy, threatened the Palestinians for planning to take their legitimate case to the ICC and has promised to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?!

    The penalty for HIGH TREASON is death by HANGING. HANG 'EM HIGH! [Trump and all the CONgress CRITTERS since Bush-it]
