In a radio interview, Ray raised this question and adduced evidence – including a remark by President Trump yesterday – that leads Ray to believe that this may actually be the case.
May 11, 2017 (16 minutes; Ray’s segment starts at minute 1:10.)
So Why Did President Trump Fire FBI Director Comey? Ray suggests that someone showed Trump convincing evidence that Comey was part of a “Deep-State” CIA-NSA-FBI cabal responsible for concocting red-herring “proof” that “Russian interference” gave the presidency to Donald Trump. The media and politicians now speak of “Russian hacking” as though it were flat fact, but no credible evidence has been adduced.
Ray draws on documentary evidence – suppressed in the corporate media – suggesting that the most likely “Russian hacker” was John Brennan, together with his cyber warriors, who are distinguished on offense – on defense against folks like Julian Assange, not so much.
It is an acute embarrassment to the CIA-NSA-FBI cyber folks that WikiLeaks obtained and published a treasure trove of original CIA documents depicting in detail CIA’s highly sophisticated cyber capabilities. These enable hacking into computers like – oh, say, those at the DNC. And the capabilities include technology that makes it virtually impossible to detect the real culprit (“obfuscate” is the term of art used in the documents). And the computer geeks can insert “telltale signs” in languages like – oh, I don’t know — like, say, Cyrillic.
The mainstream media have generally succeeded in keeping Americans in the dark in these delicate matters. But occasionally they include a clue that can give the game away to the careful reader.
For example, on page 1 of today’s (Friday) New York Times Michael S. Schmidt lifts the veil an inch – but only to the intrepid reader with the stomach to: (1) read through the turgid prose of an article titled “In a Private Dinner, Trump Demanded Loyalty. Comey Demurred;” and (2) notice the following short paragraph (the 24th of 24) buried on an inside page. There, some spoilsport appended a quote from Trump Thursday, that gives support to Ray’s take on the real reason Trump dumped Comey. Here is Michael S. Schmidt’s last paragraph:
“’In fact, when I decided to just do it [fire Comey], I said to myself, I said, you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story,’ Mr. Trump said.”
Look for more “made-up stories” to “corroborate” that Trump is in Putin’s pocket.
