Everything you need to know about the U.S. government in a Twitter Thread. From The Last Refuge at thethreadreaderapp.com:
1.) When I was in DC, doing deep research on the issues around spygate and trying to understand the depth of corruption within the legislative and judicial branches, I ran into a guy…
2.) DC was locked down at the time (May/June 2020), so there were very few people around. However, this guy’s credentials within the DC system were impeccable.
I checked him out afterward & was stunned at how he spent his entire career in/around the IC and related apparatus
3.) After a lengthy and casual introduction and discussion, I was genuinely shocked at the severity of his warnings about the FBI, DOJ and various other agencies.
However, in hindsight, after checking him out, I realized he was certainly a person to understand.
4.) His warning was direct, devoid of emotion, very deliberate and very cold. But behind his eyes and words was a guy telling the truth; the quiet part that no-one inside the bubble says openly.
5.) What he said was that not a single person of honor or integrity can survive inside the DC institutions we were discussing. The system itself is designed to remove them… All of them… every-single-one.
6.) He laughed at the term “honorable” rank and file. But it wasn’t a snarky laugh; it was almost like a resignation laugh… a genuine look toward the sky and compassion for a view I held that his honesty would destroy.
