Director of National Intelligence Coates Out? Docs Declassified? News on the FISA Abuse Investigation Coming?

Red Riding Hood tipped that John Solomon reported that Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates will likely announce his departure next week. He also said that Trump would declassify key documents in the FISA scandal, and that there would be news involving Durham's investigation into this scandal as well.

Regarding the Coates departure:

Jonathan Swan of Axios got leaked word of this in mid-July.

According to his sources, the likely replacement for Coates is Fred Fleitz.

What's next: One potential replacement Trump has mentioned to multiple sources is Fred Fleitz, who formerly served as chief of staff to national security adviser John Bolton.

Fleitz was previously a CIA analyst and a staff member of the House Intelligence Committee. He is currently the president of the Center for Security Policy.
Trump has told people that he likes Fleitz and has "heard great things." Fleitz has publicly criticized Coats and even called for Trump to fire Coats on Lou Dobbs' Fox Business program after Coats' Senate testimony. Fleitz accused Coats of undermining and "second-guessing" the president.

He also wrote for the National Review, back when it was a conservative magazine.

I don't know if the Fleitz report is true, but now with Solomon also reporting that Coates is on his way out, it seems likely that that part of the story is right.

Now, about the Durham news:

He might be talking about this: that Durham has reached out to Misfud and his attorney for an interview, and that Misfud's lawyer has told Solomon that his client is prepared to admit that he was in fact acting as an agent of the FBI in setting up Papadopolous by offering him the silly bait of saying "The Russians might have Hillary's emails, you know" so that Papadopolous could then later be charged with espionage.

Here's the print article in which Solomon reports this.

Roh [a Swiss attorney representing Misfud] told me the information he is preparing to share with Durham’s team from his client will accentuate those concerns.

Mifsud was a "longtime cooperator of western intel" who was asked specifically by his contacts at Link University in Rome and the London Center of International Law Practice (LCILP) -- two academic groups with ties to Western diplomacy and intelligence -- to meet with Papadopoulos at a dinner in Rome in mid-March 2016, Roh told me.

A May 2019 letter from Nunes to U.S. intelligence officials corroborates some of Roh’s account, revealing photos showing that the FBI conducted training at Link in fall 2016 and that Mifsud and other Link officials met regularly with world leaders, including Boris Johnson, elected today as Britain’s new prime minister.

A few days after the March dinner, Roh added, Mifsud received instructions from Link superiors to "put Papadopoulos in contact with Russians," including a think tank figure named Ivan Timofeev and a woman he was instructed to identify to Papadopoulos as Vladimir Putin's niece.

And yet the Mueller Report -- I mean the Zebley/Weissman report -- dishonestly suggested that Misfud was a Russian agent by citing uninformed media reports, while suppressing the knowledge that they knew as a fact, that he was an FBI agent all along.

I can't even explain how huge that would be. It would prove that the Mueller Report begins with a lie, and that this was a dirty FBI entrapment operation from the start, not seeking evidence of a crime, but trying to concoct a fake crime, all for a pretext to spy on Trump.

They purloined false evidence, represented it to a court as if this was a real crime involving Russian agents, and defrauded the FISA court into giving them an illegally-procured warrant.

If Misfud does in fact admit this, people will have to go to jail.

And I mean Big People.

And I mean, if Big People don't go to jail... well, then the fiction that we live in a democratic Republic is at least demolished, and we can all begin making choices and plans from an accurate view of reality in the country formerly known as America.

Oh, I can't wait to hear more about the honor and integrity of Robert Mueller.

I.

can't.

fucking.

wait.
