Pres. Trump could end the “impeachment” by using his absolute authority over classified information to remove the shield behind which it’s being done. He brought it on himself by filling top posts in “national security” agencies with persons who’d never back him and kicking out good ones-Codevilla

Trump rails loudly against what is being done to him. But he does not use his absolute authority over classified information to remove the shield behind which it is being done.”…All of thisis possible only because President Trump has appointed to positions of power in the national security agencies lots of people committed to his destruction and has been prevailed upon to fire the good ones.”

11/1/19, “The Impeachment Dog Bites Orange Man Scam,” Angelo Codevilla, American Greatness

Usually, there is no more reason to pay attention to establishment bureaucrats opposing a president elected to oppose them than there is to dwell on dogs biting whomever frightens them. But now the Democratic Party is using what little remains of the intelligence agencies’ credibility as the sword with which to strike Trump and the claims to secrecy of those agencies as the shield from behind which to do it. In other words, it is doing just what it did during the Russian-collusion scam. That is why the scam itself is the story….

As RealClear Investigations has shown, these bureaucrats were part and parcel of the Obama Administration. Some of them were key players in the Russia hoax starting in 2016. They include the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, career employees of CIA, and Democrats on staff with the House Intelligence Committee, as well as White House personnel. Some even have personal connections with the Biden family and with Ukraine.

How it came to pass that the Trump White House and the CIA are employing leftist activists is another story in itself….

In the absence of the president’s proper stewardship of the national security establishment, the American people’s sense of smell is its last defense against biting canines….

The real ground of the unending attacks on Trump is the ruling class’s decision to resist the 2016 election’s outcome. It is a revolution from which the Republic is unlikely ever to recover.

The role of the intelligence agencies in that resistance is one of that revolution’s principal parts. Indeed, only the vestiges of these agencies’ mystique, plus their legal claims to secrecy, have enabled the Democrats and the media to pretend the American people should regard partisan bureaucrats as wise and expert stewards of national security. They are no such thing.

The bureaucrats who have launched their attacks on Trump from behind the intelligence agencies’ shield of secrecy, and through the Democrat-controlled House Intelligence Committee’s hearings are part and parcel of the Democrat-led ruling class. We are asked to believe that the nation is being saved. In fact, some very dirty dogs are biting American voters…

They protect their bureaucratic allies from cross-examination by asserting the privileges of national security. Then they use the very media accounts they generate as the basis for more frankly political accusations.

The spectacle of a CIA official who bundled together the anti Trump resentments of some of his friends in the agency, in the White House, and in Congress and then got a friend at the agency to shield them all from cross-examination by changing its regulations regarding “whistleblowers”—all that and more—is possible only because President Trump has appointed to positions of power in the national security agencies lots of people committed to his destruction and has been prevailed upon to fire the good ones.

Trump rails loudly against what is being done to him. But he does not use his absolute authority over classified information to remove the shield behind which it is being done.

In the absence of the president’s proper stewardship of the national security establishment, the American people’s sense of smell is its last defense against biting canines and scams.”
