“Spygate” Fallout? – Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conté Requests Resignation of Intelligence Officials…

Apparently, Italian media are reporting that Prime Minister Giuseppe Conté has requested the resignations of several top Italian intelligence officials. The move is being interpreted as the Conte’ government responding to the previous governments’ coordinated activity with U.S. intelligence officials during the 2016 U.S. election surrounding “Spygate”.

Prime Minister Conté visited with President Trump in June 2018 at the White House; and reflects a more nationalistic outlook in Italy.  Conte’ has high approval in the country; however, it appears the socialists (including media) are outraged at the challenge to the intelligence apparatus…

[Via Google Translate] The senator of the Pd Luigi Zanda presented an urgent question to the President of the Council after the news appeared today in the newspaper La Repubblica about a presumed request for the resignation of the four deputy directors of the departments of the Italian secret services.

“The facts reported, if confirmed, appear to be of absolute gravity, providing for the application of a system of rigid spoil system and a real political subdivision applied to the intelligence system, which is entrusted with the security of our country” reads in the question, where it is underlined that “such behavior would risk not only to question the operational efficiency of our intelligence systems in a very delicate moment, but also to destroy their credibility in the precious international information network, which finds its fundamentals in professionalism, independence and in the absence of political interests in the heads of the secret services of the countries to which we are connected “.

Zanda therefore asks the President of the Council to know “if the facts reported in the introduction correspond to the truth and, if so, if he intends to revoke the request for resignation, and what urgent initiatives he intends to take to ensure that the appointments of the directors and deputy directors of our security system always respond to criteria of operational efficiency and are never subjected to the logic of political subdivision “.

The senator of the Democratic Party Roberta Pinotti, former Minister of Defense, subscribes to the question. “Intelligence and security services – he said – are a good of the state to safeguard the community and we cannot think of naming the top on the basis of spoil system logics”. “I do not remember that the change of service executives ever took place in the fullness of their mandate, not as a result of any errors or serious shortcomings, but simply to politically reorient the offices“.

“If the press reports were confirmed, we would be faced with an episode that would humiliate the structure of our Intelligence and the people involved and that would create a very serious precedent, establishing an extremely dangerous and unacceptable practice in a democratic country,” concludes Pinotti.

    I believe this offers validity to rumors that our President has ordered the declassification process to begin. SD said that it would include notification of many foreign governments. The Italians know they are complicit with illegal/unethical interference in our affairs and are trying to get ahead of beacon of truth and reality.

      @KnowSERENoFear: I’m sure the visit by Devin Nunes this past week and the co-operation by FBI agent Gaeta stationed in Rome/Italy in SpyGate has helped Conti to make this right decision.
      Foreign interference in our election together with the framing and attempt to remove our president is Treason.
      Any and all foreign entities involved should be a wake up call as it looks as though the UK, Italy and the other FiveEye members together with Ukraine declared war when they decided to undertake and participate in this treason.

      That’s the bottom line ergo president Trump is aware that allies exist on paper but do destructive things against this republic, its people and the president. They are our enemies ergo a new alignment of allies is a necessity.

      There is a reason that our military intelligence cut off the UK and others from our satellites/intelligence sharing among other info sharing ergo the begging by the GCHQ to re-establish the sharing capabilities.

    PAPA-D and his wife now need 24/7 armed security if they don’t have it already.
    BRENNAN, COMEY, CLAPPER, BAKER are the tip of the iceberg not only for treasonous activity, but also as COLLATERAL DAMAGE to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. They understand this along with all the other players (STRZOK, PAGE, the OHR’s, etc, etc,). They all are going to play a detailed and increasingly desperate game to avoid getting on the Clinton Body Count List.
    Clinton and Obama themselves are now going to play a complicated and dangerous game to ensure, first, that each one independently avoids a trial / jail time; while, second, making sure that only one of them is “left standing” at the end of the day.

        Suppose the process for nominating a GOP candidate for President was :

        1. To let anyone stand who is nominated by at least 10 GOP House members or Senators
        2. Take a series of secret ballots, with the voters being GOP House members and Senators, knocking out the person with the smallest number of votes on each successive ballot
        3. And then stop when you’ve knocked out all of them out but two
        4. Then do a national ballot of registered Republicans as the run off between the last two

        Trump would win 4. easily. Except that he’d never get as far as 4. The GOP congresscritturs wouldn’t let him get into the last two, to go to the national ballot.

        That’s basically the system for electing a new Conservative leader in the UK. To get into the national ballot (which he’d win comfortably) Boris would need to get about 33% of UK Conservative congresscritturs – which would be enough to get him into the last two. Not going to happen. His ceiling is probably about 20%. He might get to 33% if the Conservative congresscritturs get into full DEFCON 1 meltdown panic. They’re only on about DEFCON 3 now.

        Prime Minister Boris is not very likely.

    As we read earlier by Sundance Barr is talking with the various agency heads possibly to prepare them for the declassification and thus they may be getting the word out as a curtesy to the foreign countries thus possibly driving actions we are seeing in Italy.

    What I really like is so far the focus seems to be on who started this whole Russian BS story and who got foreign allies involved.

    Barr seems to be starting at the top of this totem pole. Or maybe one head down.

    “I found that two of Joseph Mifsud’s closest colleagues, who the FBI would have designated as high-frequency, were Claire Smith and Gianni Pittella”

    “Gianni Pittella has known Mifsud for a while. They met at the European Parliament and have collaborated on numerous projects together. In July 2016, Pittella gave a rousing speech at Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign launch in Philadelphia, calling Donald Trump ‘a virus’ which needed to be stopped, while his close collaborator Mifsud was supposedly helping Trump’s campaign to conspire with Russia. If the FBI had been doing a proper investigation into Joseph Mifsud, these two connections should have raised red flags immediately.”

    The attempted coup staged by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump has completely destroyed the notion of the “peaceful transition of power” in America.

    Never before in the history of the Republic has an outgoing President attempted to sabotage and undermine his successor. Until Barack Obama.

    The very fabric of the United States demands that the integrity of our elections be respected. No two-term President has ever sought to destroy the Presidency of his successor by maliciously undermining them both before and after he was elected.

    The peaceful transition of power was an integral part of American Democracy. Not anymore, apparently.

    But Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have both damaged the United States in ways the Russians couldn’t even hope to. They have openly assaulted the integrity of our elections. Weaponized the intelligence agencies, the DOJ and the FBI against political opponents. Actively conspired to overthrow the President. Set in motion a series of corrupt activities and cataclysmic events that have eviscerated the character of America for the last three years.

    In the process, Obama is the destroyer of the very notion of the peaceful transition of power. His criminal activities to undermine the Trump Presidency amount to sedition, abuse of power, abrogation of civil rights, waging an effective coup d’etat against the constitution and amount to treason.

    Hillary Clinton continues, two years after she lost, to insist that the election was “stolen from her”. Obama Vice President Joe Biden agreed with a New Hampshire voter who declared Trump an ‘illegitimate President”. Hillary Clinton invented the Russian Dossier that John Brennan and James Comey inflicted on the body politic. Joe Biden was part and parcel of the Obama administrations dirty tricks, criminal spying, and overt corruption.

      George’s story has some holes in it.

      1. He says the LCILP reached out to him on Linked In. The Mueller report says he reached out to them on email. So we need to reconcile who reached out to who.

      2. He joined LCILP in early Feb 2016, after he quit the Carson campaign and before he joined the Trump campaign. So if someone is setting him up to dirty up the Trump campaign, they’re doing ti way too early.

      If “they” were trying to dirty him up, or otherwise get their hooks into him this early (ie Jan / Feb 2016) it’s much more likely “they” are UK and Italian intelligence, and their interest is more likely to be anti-Israel than anti-Trump at that stage. Since George’s business was energy consulting in the Eastern Med.

      Then having got him, they may have repurposed him in consutation with Brennan to be dirtied-up for anti-Trump purposes. But getting him to LCILP in Jan/Feb 2016 makes no sense seen as preparation for a Trump smear.

    During 2015, various contingency plans were developed by the Obama Administration in regard to the upcoming 2016 presidential election. One of these plans eventually became the genesis of SpyGate/RussiaGate, which was green-lighted in early 2016 at a meeting in the White House. Brennan was tasked with fleshing out the details and coordinating implementation using CIA assets, and he reached out to several “allies” for both assistance and inspiration. The Brits then played a key role in plan development based upon a similar operation they conducted in the 70s, and also participated directly via MI6 support working out of their DC embassy. In addition to assisting with the dossier, Steele served as their point man overseeing the interests of the British government. Many foreign intelligence services provided ancillary support for the attempted coup against Trump, and these organizations will be spotlighted in the coming weeks. There are also many other crimes for which the public is fully unaware that will be coming to light soon. In particular, treason on a scale unmatched in our nation’s history.

    A college buddy of mine had a phrase for where “Spygate” is going for the conspirators:

    “The Cheeze doth get binding.”

    Anything they say now — given that AG Barr has ex-FBI Director Comey’s “Spygate” sources and methods cliff notes — including nothing, will see them go to jail.

    It boils down to who is going to rat first a nd biggest, assuming AG Barr is both honest and wants to clean this scandal up.

    The international oligarchy has to have lots of evil geniuses deep in the bowels of the hollowed out volcano. Could they possibly put out such a Keystone Cops mission to stop Trump, their biggest and only major threat so far to achieving absolute world dominance? If their core power players are world communists who have been working their plan since the turn of the Twentieth Century, they have to be brilliantly cunning and deeply entrenched in every country on the planet. Scary to think it’s likely we haven’t seen their big guns yet. I speculate, but there has to be more to this unholy, ruthless cabal that has brought the great USA here to the brink of dissolution. (An aside: Papadoupolis appears to be the hero of the hour; so why do i have the feeling that he is impossibly smooth, articulate and highly placed for a guy his age, and does that have any significance?)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson was the conscience of America in the foundational days of the American Republic during the early 1800s. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of essays and letters. Among his most quoted sayings is “When you strike at a king you must kill him”

    Politicians all over the world are realizing that Trump is emerging from this two year witch hunt and Resistance with a very strong hand to neutralize his enemies in the Deep State. The Italian premier wants to be on the side of the victor. Next we may see some reaction from the Brits and Aussies and Israelis who also got embroiled in the Russia Hoax at the request of Brennan, Clapper and Comey. They may claim they had no idea about the target of the Pappadopolous entrapment net being Trump, but some heads may roll in their intel services as well.
