CNN’s Kate Bolduan Goes Into Near Hysteria On Former Navy SEAL Over Info Trump Gave To Russians

The American Press/Broadcast Media Corps has descended into a full frothing, rabid, insanity mode in its feral efforts to bring down the Donald Trump Presidency.

Here’s what happened:

  1. On May 10, Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office with several members of his inner circle (including National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster) and two Russian officials, Sergei Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak.
  2. During that meeting, Mr. Trump reportedly passed certain intelligence information pertinent to the ongoing war against the Islamic State to the Russian officials.  BTW, Russia is also engaged in the ongoing military conflict against ISIS.
  3. Some person, or persons, who were present in the meeting (presumably in advisory positions to the President), ran to the Washington Post and divulged the information that Mr. Trump had passed some “highly classified” intel info on to the Russians.

Seriously.  He did that.

The WashPo then published a story, based upon info received from anonymous informants the Post called “current and former U.S. officials”, whom we shall to wit and henceforth call leakers.  The WashPo report accuses the President of releasing highly classified information to the Russians, thereby “jeopardizing a critical source of intelligence.”  Whatever that means.

Ergo the entire American Press Corps has gone into the vapors and hysterical convulsions (figuratively speaking) and is accusing the President of some sort of bad act – as in compromising the national security?  I have no idea what the bad act is. He’s the Commander In Chief.  He is authorized to communicate with diplomats from other countries.   Classified information in his possession is his to declassify as such at his discretion.

But certain members of the Press Corps are now calling for articles of impeachment.


May I suggest that the real problem here is the leakers who took it upon themselves to run to the Trump-hating Washington Post and reveal the content of a rather sensitive legitimate intel-sharing meeting, held in the Oval Office in the course of fighting a war against the Islamic State.

Comes then former US Navy SEAL Carl Higbie as a guest on CNN  for his take on the situation, where he encountered a gang of hostile Trump-loathing journos.  You can decide for yourself if what happened constitutes any semblance of objective reporting.

Be forewarned.  There is some enraged shrieking, because Higbie did not perceive what happened as a grave national emergency.

This is not objective journalism.  It’s political-agenda-driven hysteria.  I don’t know what else to call it.

Mr. Trump has some more trash to take out of his house.  And he’d better get to it quickly.

Thanks to the Washington Free Beacon and Jed West for the video link.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
