Air-force Fighter Jet Shot Down over Maryland

On its Way to Attack the Whitehouse?

UPDATE: FOX, CNN, AND ALL OTHERS SUDDENLY BLACKED OUT KEY ELEMENTS OF THIS STORY, THIS IS SOMETHING BIG!!!

Is this going to be known as the 2nd  shot heard around the world? 

You probably won't hear it on the news as a shoot down, but there are eyewitnesses that it was a shoot down:

"I was on my back porch and saw a flash. Then a jet falling. And then the BOOM! WTF?!?!?!"

"Crash? I saw a streak of light headed to it right before it exploded."

According to early reports on the MSM, the pilots ejected safely, but the big question is, how on earth did an American jet get shot down over Maryland? Was it going to attack DC??? Is there a mutiny going on?

Was it a Luck-Strike?

The jet was shot down 10 miles from the white house, which that jet could travel in less than 30 seconds. 

NOTE: Most know that the Whitehouse house has surface-to-air defensive missiles on the roof. However, those missiles can only be there to stop slow flying aircraft that may be used in an attack. I say that because modern Fighter attack aircraft can launch their missiles from many miles away and it is highly doubtful that the missiles atop the Whitehouse can stop multiple, inbound fast moving missiles like that. So, what else do they have that they could deploy much farther out against an actual attack aircraft?  It is little known that the government owns many rural properties within 10 to 12 miles surrounding the Whitehouse with hidden infrastructure within them all to deploy more sophisticated surface to air missiles against many inbound aircraft. So take note; this admittedly, fully armed F-16 was shot down while passing over that ten-mile, missile protection ring. 

No one is talking about a possible attack yet, but it was at least a shoot-down (I will believe the people saying they saw it happen and who posted about it even before CNN). SO, the question is: Was the jet shot down with one of the missiles that got sent to "ISIS"? 

SUBSEQUENT INFO PROVES A NOT ADMITTED TO SHOOT DOWN!

A woman Fox interviewed said there were two large booms before the plane fell and the pilot ejected. WHEN THE PILOT EJECTED, HE WAS ON FIRE. If the pilot was on fire, it can only mean the fuel tanks got ruptured and threw fuel throughout a totally disintegrated plane. Most intelligent missiles can identify aircraft and seek out the fuel tank. If the pilot was on fire when he ejected, it proves a fuel tank hit. It was not an engine failure or a bird strike!

 

When you combine this with two other eyewitnesses, one who "saw a flash" and another saying he saw a streak of light go towards the plane, and a woman on Fox News saying the pilot who ejected was on fire, we definitely have a shoot-down, they can't put that away!

The pilot is obviously alive but from this picture, (above) there's no telling how badly his legs are burnt. He's not standing so he's probably hurt.

Update: Reports now say that he got hurt, but he's going to be alright.

Update: Reports now say that he got hurt, but he's going to be alright.

PROVEN FUEL TANK HIT/EXPLOSION

A witness told Fox 5 DC/WTTG that he was sitting on his porch when he heard a loud explosion. He said the jet was on fire and he saw the pilot eject. It was the biggest fireball I've ever seen in my life," Patrick Dotson said."

 IMPORTANT: The next thing he said proves the media is lying about an unarmed training flight: "Dotson said the pilot asked if the neighborhood was OK because he had live rounds on board" This came across FOX news live. So it was not a training flight no matter what anyone says, the pilot was a good guy worried about what happened to the neighborhood, AND THE MSM IS NOW LYING TO COVER UP THE FACT THE PLANE WAS LOADED. Gee! I wonder why?

Additionally, "Huge fireball" means complete fuel tank breach. This again strongly indicates it was a missile strike.

OK, now we have - 1. It was not a training flight. 2. It was a fully loaded aircraft with full ammunition. 3. It was a definite shoot down. 4. The pilot cared about damage caused by the crash, (so he's a good guy) and 5. The media suddenly shut up about it. Hush orders.

IT IS OFFICIAL: The DOD has ordered all pictures posted to social media to be deleted. This is getting scrubbed.

Reader comment: First the I-85 bridge and now this. Someone really wants war.

My response: I really think that is what we are looking at. What if they blame NK for the shoot down? It would certainly be convenient. And yesterday even Pravda published that the CIA most likely did the St Petersburg terror attacks. Things are heating up, and bluffs are being called. So there might be dangerous desperation going on.

A reader sent a Google report that said a witness heard gunfire after the plane exploded. Don't know what to make of that because the pilot is still alive, other than possibly along with a missile there was live fire and the sound of it arrived later.

"Rabbit Hole" successfully sent this via Unseen.is and I don't know what mailbox because in this case several of this web site's servers handled it and confused things:

My Opinion: It is already beyond proven the plane was fully armed. That means it was by no means a training incident because the plane was over civilian areas. The only time planes carry munitions during training is when they are doing a bombing run ON A MILITARY BASE and the plane never leaves the base at any point. Other than that, training flights are NEVER ARMED. It is not safe enough to send trainees out over civilian turf with full weapons where the smallest mistake could wipe out a neighborhood! It is simply NEVER DONE.

That means there is something huge to this story that they buried.

There have been multiple mass shootings of Americans by Muslims

But Muslims think THEY are the victims

With the DHS teaching them how to survive active-shooter scenarios?

 THE answer to all anti-freedom opponents!

300-grains of Kinetic disclosure at any distance!  

  • There have been no mass killings of Muslims in America, not even after 9/11!

  • Watch this video from the designated terrorist group CAIR, you would think that Muslims are in the greatest danger because of a few dozen written threats.

  • No doubt that the majority of these "alleged" text-threats were in fact written by Muslims themselves for sympathy… Of course, none to date have been carried out.

They are here, and they like to fight with these:

So answer all calls with one of these!

WHO THEY ARE

   

 So, introduce them to the American Rifleman!

 

They even recruited a representative of Homeland Security, paid for by American taxpayers, to talk to them about what to do about an active shooter. I wonder how many potential Muslim active shooters were in the audience? 

SOON IT WILL BE ON - TIME TO BUY BODY-ARMOR

Law Enforcement Stealing Billions from Americans

DEA and LE have Stolen $3.2 Billion From Americans Without Charges Since 2007!

In my post published earlier this week, Recent TSA Molestation Video Proves Americans Have Become Authority Worshipping Slaves, I noted the following:

Yeah, it’s disgusting, inappropriate and anathema to a free people, but that’s the point. We aren’t a free people. We’ve become a bunch of authority-worshiping subjects toiling on a plantation dominated by multi-national companies who write our laws and manipulate our thoughts through corporate media. The worst part is we don’t do anything about it. We elect Trump and then puff our chests out yelling stupid slogans like MAGA, as molestations from the TSA get worse. Well done everyone.

I was pleased that the above paragraph connected with many people, but for those of you who think I was being hyperbolic, take a look at the following excerpts from a piece recently published at The Washington Post, Since 2007, the DEA Has Taken $3.2 Billion in Cash from People Not Charged with a Crime:

The Drug Enforcement Administration takes billions of dollars in cash from people who are never charged with criminal activity, according to a report issued today by the Justice Department’s Inspector General. 

Since 2007, the report found, the DEA has seized more than $4 billion in cash from people suspected of involvement with the drug trade. But 81 percent of those seizures, totaling $3.2 billion, were conducted administratively, meaning no civil or criminal charges were brought against the owners of the cash and no judicial review of the seizures ever occurred.

Remember, the terrorists hate us for our freedom.

That total does not include the dollar value of other seized assets, like cars, homes, electronics and clothing. 

These seizures are all legal under the controversial practice of civil asset forfeiture, which allows authorities to take cash, contraband and property from people suspected of crime. But the practice does not require authorities to obtain a criminal conviction, and it allows departments to keep seized cash and property for themselves unless individuals successfully challenge the forfeiture in court. Critics across the political spectrum say this creates a perverse profit motive, incentivizing police to seize goods not for the purpose of fighting crime, but for padding department budgets. 

In the absence of this information, the report examined 100 DEA cash seizures that occurred “without a court-issued warrant and without the presence of narcotics, the latter of which would provide strong evidence of related criminal behavior.” 

Fewer than half of those seizures were related to a new or ongoing criminal investigation, or led to an arrest or prosecution, the Inspector General found. 

“When seizure and administrative forfeitures do not ultimately advance an investigation or prosecution,” the report concludes, “law enforcement creates the appearance, and risks the reality, that it is more interested in seizing and forfeiting cash than advancing an investigation or prosecution.”  

The scope of asset forfeiture is staggering. Since 2007 the Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeiture Fund, which collects proceeds from seized cash and other property, has ballooned to $28 billion. In 2014 alone authorities seized $5 billion in cash and property from people — greater than the value of all documented losses to burglary that year.  

Some of the encounters were based on tips from confidential sources working in the travel industry, a number of whom have received large sums of money in exchange for their cooperation. In one case, officers targeted an individual for questioning on a tip from a travel industry informant that the individual had paid for a plane ticket with a pre-paid debit card and cash.

Nope, no conflict of interest there. USA! USA!

Forfeiture cases are also legally complex and difficult for individuals to win. Forfeiture cases are brought against the property, rather than the individual, leading to Kafkaesque case titles like United States v. $8,850 in U.S. Currency and  United States of America v. One Men’s Rolex Pearl Master Watch. 

While criminal proceedings assume the defendant’s innocence, forfeiture proceedings start from the presumption of guilt. That means that individuals who fight forfeiture must prove their innocence in court.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday there was “no reason” to curb law enforcement agencies that seize cash, vehicles and other assets of people suspected of crimes, a practice that some lawmakers and activists have criticized for denying legal rights. 

The issue of civil asset forfeiture, created to disrupt the activities of organized crime groups, arose when sheriffs from around the United States told Trump at a White House meeting that they were under pressure to ease the practice. 

"I’d like to look into that,” Trump said. “There’s no reason for that.”

Makes sense. Eliminating due process and providing the feds with open-season to steal possessions from American citizens without charge is clearly a populist position.

This is an issue that’s been very important to me for many years, and I’m absolutely disgusted by Trump for being a defender of something so anti-American and unconstitutional.

BREAKING: Rep. Trey Gowdy Exhumed Body of Vince Foster

 Autopsy Results – Cause Of Death To Be Changed to Homocide!

"A string of events this week has led to incredible results in a 23-year-old case that had gone completely cold. After a reporter for The Washington Examiner was shot dead in front of his home and a letter was sent to his editor on his behalf, an investigation began into the death of Clinton attorney Vince Foster. Foster’s death in 1993 had been ruled a suicide.

With new evidence, Rep. Trey Gowdy successfully petitioned a federal judge to have the body of Vince Foster exhumed for an autopsy. The body wasn’t autopsied before burial the first time, which aided in the theory of a cover-up. Forensic specialists examined the body last night at the Naval Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, concluding that the cause of death for Mr. Foster should be changed from suicide to homicide.

LT Col. James McFitting, head of the hospital’s forensics lab, told reporters in his office that Foster had not one but two gunshot wounds, both of which would have been fatal. There would be no way he could have pulled the trigger himself a second time. The wounds were also in the back of his head, meaning unless he reached all the way around to make it look like a murder and fired two identical guns at the same time, the original story was impossible.

The doctor who signed Foster’s death certificate died in a car crash a few months later and the police detectives who worked the case have both left the country, never to be seen again. Without the letter from the reporter, Mr. Foster may have never seen justice.

The case has been turned over to the FBI, who has clear jurisdiction at this point, for the challenging task of connecting the dots from Foster’s death directly to Bill and Hillary Clinton. Director Comey has assured the congressional panel that he will personally see to it that all the bureau’s resources are made available.

In other words, Clinton will be getting away with murder…again.

WASHINGTON – "Vince Foster, a close friend and former law partner of Hillary Clinton’s, was discovered on July 20, 1993, lying in Fort Marcy Park with a fatal gunshot wound.

Two investigations, the first led by Robert Fiske and the second by Kenneth Starr, concluded Foster suffered a single, self-inflicted wound. A simple suicide. Case closed.

But newly discovered evidence unearthed from boxes stored deep in the National Archives lend credence to theories about foul play and cover-up that have been hinted at by at least three books and countless articles...."

"The FBI claimed some of the original photos taken by Park Police had been under-exposed and were basically useless. But when Rodriguez found the original images buried in a file, he took them to an independent photo lab used by the Smithsonian Institute and had them enhanced. He was astounded at what they showed. What had once been a blurred spot on the neck, possibly a blood stain as claimed by the FBI, was now clearly something much more."

"The newly discovered evidence has actually been sitting, unnoticed or ignored by the media, in the National Archives and Records Administration for years. In 2009, two documents created by Rodriguez were discovered in the archives by researchers Hugh Turley and Patrick Knowlton."

"The Rodriguez letter blows holes in the government’s conclusion that Foster’s body had a single self-inflicted gunshot wound....." READ LETTER HERE!

NYPD & FBI Are Now Leaking Anthony Wiener's Computer Files!

BREAKING: “THE FILE HAS ENOUGH NAMES TO LEAVE DC A GHOST TOWN OR A SUPERMAX PRISON” – NEW WEINER LEAKS HAVE BEGUN

VL is claiming that he’s received information from “A very reliable source” [witin a major NY media Co.] about the NYPD. The New York Police Department are said to have cloned a copy of Anthony Weiner’s computer, prior to handing it over the FBI last fall.

VL continues, “NYPD detectives, along with select FBI agents who are sick of the stonewalling of [FBI Director] Comey and the brass at FBI and CIA have started leaking information on their investigation into Anthony Weiner’s laptop…

“Among other things, we have learned from our insider that the Clintons and other politicians were engaged in money laundering, child exploitation, sex crimes with minors, perjury, pay-to-play through the Clinton Foundation, obstruction of justice and other felony crimes.”

Now many of us (myself, included) with access to people who have inside knowledge of this situation have been hearing this story about the “fed-up” NYPD for months and nothing has happened.

This video contains an alleged prurient leak of a lewd and disgusting Twitter Direct Message that Weiner made to a 14-year-old girl. In all likelihood, this deranged tweet will never be confirmed on any MSM outlet, if for no other reason than that it is too sick for family television.

VL continues, “Weiner has also contacted young boys and also still keeps in close contact with Chuck Schumer. A file marked ‘Life Insurance’, which we’ve talked about here may be leaked by the NYPD detectives because they are done sitting around while the politicians rape children and lie to the public.

“‘Nobody is above the law,’ said one source. ‘The file has enough names to leave DC a ghost town or a Supermax prison,’ according to one detective. ‘You literally have a third of the politicians dirty or worse,’ said one detective.

“Our source is a reporter in New York City and from what we know so far, four detectives have begun leaking the information and there will be clear connections made between Schumer, Weiner, Epstein, Dershowitz, Williams and Hillary Clinton and more.

“The NYPD has had it with Comey and his brass. Expect a flood of leaks immediately…our source said it’s already begun.

“After Comey went up to Congress and the hearing in Congress a couple of days ago…people are just outraged at Comey right now. From what I understand, NYPD was promised that this stuff was going to get leaked by the FBI. You cannot trust Comey.

Everybody sees that right now. The white hats at the NYPD and at the FBI, they’ve had it. They’ve had it, Folks…

“The FBI cannot trust Comey anymore…he’s not going to do the right thing. He’s protecting the Clintons.”...... More:

Fox News Fires Judge Napolitano

After He proved Obama Treason Live On Air!

Judge Napolitano got too close to the truth.  We must remember who owns Fox Fake New Organization: billionaire Murdock, an Aussie who is also a British Subject and member of the world elite. After Trump received the direct intelligence about who worked on behalf of the traitor Obama via a top CIA agent, Judge Napolitano called out CGHQ as being the organization who wire-tapped Trump tower. All this was evidently too close to home, someone picked up the phone and called Rupert to fix the Napolitano problem.

  The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is a British intelligence and security organization responsible for providing signals intelligence (SIGINT) and information assurance to the British government and armed forces.

 "Shepard Smith at Fox News all but fell over himself trying to run from the comments. He said, “Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way.” This is the kind of statement by both Fox and Smith that could really come back to haunt them should the Judge’s words prove true. Napolitano is not a man who has a reputation for being wrong nor dishonest in any way. For this reason, if he was right, many viewers will see Fox just as they do CNN, which is fake news. They also will not easily forgive the besmirching of Napolitano or Trump, if vindicated." READ MORE:

Vaccine Poisons Now being Outed by Trump & Alt Media

SAVE your Children! This is not a conspiracy theory or debate!  Only established admitted FACTS that are DENIED by ALL vaccine pushers!

"Isn’t it fascinating how anyone who cites a CDC document and points out that vaccines contain African Green Monkey kidney cells or aborted human fetal tissue cell lines is immediately branded a “conspiracy theorist” even when they are irrefutably, factually correct?"

"To this day, Richard Pan continues to insist that vaccines contain no harmful mercury and no human fetal tissue cell lines even when the CDC openly admits vaccines are deliberately made with mercury and human fetal tissue cell lines. (See Sen. Richard Pan lying in the video below.)

Thus is not a conspiracy theory. It’s a confirmed fact. But it’s a fact that Richard Pan and other medical child molesters refuse to publicly admit to because they know if the truth came out, parents would go berserk over the fact that their children have been injected with abortion harvested human fetal tissue cell lines (and other bizarre ingredients) year after year, all while the vaccine industry has absolute legal immunity from all the damage caused by their defective products.""

"The chicken pox (Varicella) vaccine, by the way, is listed by the CDC as having the following excipient ingredients which obviously include fetal tissue cell lines:

'human embryonic lung cell cultures, guinea pig cell cultures, human diploid cell cultures (WI-38), human diploid cell cultures (MRC-5), sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), neomycin, fetal bovine serum..'

"This means that every parent giving their child a chicken pox vaccine is injecting their child with cell lines originally harvested from aborted human fetuses."

EXPLOSION OF NEW JOBS AS AMERICA EMBRACES TRUMP’S ECONOMIC VISION

While the Communist Progressive Children Plan to Lay Waste to Cities!

UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP U.S. COMPANIES ADDED A WHOPPING 298,000 NEW JOBS IN FEBRUARY, BEATING ECONOMISTS’ EXPECTATIONS BY MORE THAN 100,000.

"EDITOR’S NOTE: Donald Trump’s pledge to make America great again is being realized with an unprecedented explosion in new job creation in the month of February alone. So here is something you need to think about. When Democrats pledge to “stop Trump“, they are also pledging to kill the economy and working to keep people unemployed. Democrats don’t want to stop Trump as much as they want to cripple an America that has rejected their Socialist vision. That would make Democrats the enemy of our country. Think about that.

The report from ADP, a global human resources, and payroll firm provides the first hard economic numbers from President Donald Trump’s first full month as president." LINK

And while Trump is working 16 hour days to turn the tide of evil and their deluded sycophants, this is what the other side is doing in protest... 

 

 With these childlike psycho's who are led by ancient aliens like Schumer, Pelosi, Feinstein, Loretta Lynch, and a host of other Babylonian traitors to humanity who are now trying to force Trump's impeachment anyway possible, will this end in an actual, protracted shooting war if they somehow get their way? Or God forbid, actually find a way to JFK President Trump? I say it will, but also warn!

Lynch, who is led by Obama and Soros, with Obama now in open rebellion advocating the overthrow of a sitting President, is cleverly seen here calling, predicting war in the streets.  

  In this video taken at the MN State Capitol, we can plainly see exactly who the "deplorables" are! These protestors show up in face masked, military clothing and armed with Tasers and Mace!

With these kinds of guided activities using people who no longer have an ability for critical thinking or a shred of good judgment, and who have shown time and again to have a propensity towards violence against others and for the destruction of private property, it will NOT be long until the next SHOT heard round the world will be fired. 

U.S Soldiers, as many obviously were at the MN Capitol that day, have always been trained to treat those who wear such masks as terrorists! So the warning to all those who remain led to such protest violence by the likes of Loretta Lynch is this; on that day when you plan to maim and kill innocents for your autistic insanity, after that THESE are the men who will deal with you. And they will deal with you very quickly. So when you do this - 

As much as no one wishes this to happen, nor advocates violence outside of self-defense or in the defense of others - You will be met with this!

Wire-Taps - Obama’s ‘Silent Coup’ Against President Trump

Breitbart's Joel Pollack -  Timeline of the "coup" launched by Obama against Trump:

"Mark Levin called the effort a “silent coup” by the Obama administration and demanded that it be investigated.

In addition, Levin castigated Republicans in Congress for focusing their attention on Trump and Attorney General Sessions rather than Obama."

Before reading on, you MUST watch this quick video to remind yourself how this crazy person is a DIRECT reflection of all the Demon-cratic crazies driving their silent coup by crying Russian wolf!

 

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers and reduced protections could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation.

9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks.

10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.

 Charles Schumer = I.Q of a Sock-Puppet!
