The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) holds confirmation authority over leaders appointed to the intelligence community. Chairman Burr and Vice-Chairman Warner participated in the IC effort to target and remove President Trump from office.
You might remember recently how Burr and Warner would not support Rep. John Ratcliffe for Director of National intelligence under the auspices of Ratcliffe not having enough experience within intelligence operations. However, those same experience concerns were absent when they approved dirty ICIG nominee Michael Atkinson.
Reminding ourselves how ICIG Atkinson manipulated the whistle-blower regulations to permit hearsay from CIA operative Eric Ciaramella; and knowing the primary concern of Senator Warner was to cover his own involvement in the soft coup effort in 2017; it is interesting to go back to the 2018 confirmation hearing of Atkinson and review the focus:

Burr is neck deep in the deep state corruption
it does appear to be more winning.
I would give everyone else’s left nut to see that man hang with the rest of them.
Is anyone surprised that there are RINO Swamp Dwellers in cahoots with dem Swamp Dwellers against our president? Burr appears to be by all his actions since president Trump was sworn in to be chief among them in the Senate.
Question is, what will we Trump supporters do to make Burr pay a price?
Thanks for posting this. Traitors.
The traps are set everywhere and the rats are smoked out.
“Question is, what will we Trump supporters do to make Burr pay a price?”
Every shred of information, every approved action was shared with Mitch McConnell and Devin Nunes too.
And we didn’t hear a peep from them while it was ongoing.
Not quite true. Nunes filed a comprehensive report of his findings with the FISC. They did nothing. Te dems attacked him. The media attacked him.
Now, after the IG report was finally released after 2 years of stalling everything in Nunes report to the FISC has been proven true. Validated by the long, purposefully delayed IG report.
The Turtle may be complicit but, Nunes is not!
Because of their direct role in confirming the officials who would have access to the evidence of their compromise, the SSCI can block anyone who would be a risk to them.
President Trump nominated John Ratcliffe for the position of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). Senator Burr informed the White House that nominee does not align with their interests. President Trump withdrew the nomination.
The intelligence apparatus is a key part of the rogue administrative state that operates in direct alignment with a rogue state department and politicians who use their influence to gain material wealth from sales of policy. It is a synergy of DC interests.
In the larger context this reality also explains why Lt. General Michael Flynn had to be eliminated with extreme prejudice from National Security Advisor to President Trump. In 2017 Michael Flynn represented the same type of threat to the SSCI that John Ratcliffe represents in 2019….
The office of the presidency cannot overcome that institutional power dynamic; the only thing President Trump can do it attempt to work around them.
♦ Ipso Facto: If you accept the intellectual honesty behind the process issues above; and if you accept how the SSCI will only permit nominees that are not a risk to their interests; then it becomes of greater importance to consider who they *did* permit:
√ CIA Director Gina Haspel was not a threat to the corrupt state.
√ CIA Director Mike Pompeo was not a threat to the corrupt state.
√ICIG Michael Atkinson was not a threat to the corrupt state.
√ ODNI Dan Coats was not a threat to the corrupt state.
√ NSA Director Paul M Nakasone is not a threat to the corrupt state.
Following the use of the CIA (Ciaramella), DoD (Vindman) and Dept. of State to run the impeachment scam, my evolving contention is now that State Dept. Secretary Mike Pompeo was increasingly handling President Trump.
This spying started before Trump announced in June 2015.
Nunes at Intel and Ryan was speaker. McConnell and Burr in the Senate rounded out the Republican 4 of the Gang of Eight.
Nunes was just the first to speak out once the operations had been blown.
Yes, to his credit.
But he signed on long before that.
Your supposition is, Nunes was in on it until he realized the operation was blown.
I haven’t seen a single thing to back up your assertion. Not saying your wrong but, I haven’t read a single thing to back-up your apparent assertion.
In fact, there are numerous people who have been investigating this coup attempt that are saying Nunes and Admiral Rogers deserve a medal for their actions to inform and protect our president from this coup.
The Gang of Eight was informed of all these operations before they were enacted.
Nunes was there. With Ryan, McConnell and Burr. All the same meetings, all the same briefings. All at the same time.
Looks like Warner is “dirty” as can be. He should be hauled before the Sen. Foreign Relations Committee and Sen. Judiciary Committee and asked about what Waldman was talking about re someone going to do a lot of damage to the Democrats re intelligence issues.
This is treason at its best.
Frankly, and I hate to say so, but if these people dont start going to prison it may be time to start killing some of them.
