Senior U.S. intel official predicts Donald Trump will go to prison for his Russian treason

Over the past week it’s become clear that the United States intelligence community is intent on exposing every last detail of Donald Trump’s election collusion with Russia, and that it’s willing to leak whatever evidence it finds directly to the media in order to make sure Trump can’t quash it. These leaks have taken down Michael Flynn, and more dominoes are in the process of falling. Now one senior U.S. intel official is flatly predicting that this will end with Donald Trump going to prison.

Impeach Donald Trump Now

Last night’s latest revelation, that four of Trump’s top campaign advisors colluded with Russian intel officials during the election, appears to have burst the dam wide open. Trump fired back this morning with an ill-advised Twitter post about how those leaking the details of his Russian collusion were “un-American” for doing so. Hours later, John Schindler, a national security columnist for The Observer, tweeted a fascinating response that he had just received privately from a senior U.S. intel official.

Real News. Fake President.

Schindler tweeted that the senior U.S. intel official had shared with him the prediction that Donald Trump “will die in jail.” This appeared to be a prediction based on what the intel official knows about Trump’s treasonous crimes with regard to Russia, and not some kind of retaliatory threat. But Schinder’s tweet helps to underscore just how thoroughly the intel community believes Trump is guilty of treason with Russia, and its confidence in ultimately being able to prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt – which is what would be required for Trump to end up impeached and imprisoned for it.

This comes less than a day after the New York Times reported that four of Trump’s campaign advisors, including Michael Flynn, had been caught by the U.S. intel community colluding with Russian intel officials during the election. It may now simply be a matter of which of the four flips on Trump first.

    I would love nothing more than to see Trump goes to jail and rot there, never see the day light at all. Or he should be committed to mental hospital for life. Trump is a very dangerous sick man.

      If you want to get Trump you have to write to your US Senator if Republican tell them they lost not just your vote but you very friend you have including all of your friends on Facebook. You will be surprised at how fast they get back to you. Trump will take them down if they stick with him. And yet they still cover for him. The only way is to go to the Senators if Republicans and let them no there chances of reelection are
      not good if they are still. O wring for Trump. Look what he did to the mayor in England. I have been over
      there and the towns are very small. So if one person dies everyone knows. But to have 7 people mowed down and many more hurt and then have Trump treating this man like he’s an idiot. Come on folks Donnie is not playing with a full deck. His casino in Atlantic City went bankrupt but he came out with millions. As my daughter says he a few frys short of a happy meal. Write your US Senator if Republican and let hem no . There will be no chance of them winning if they keep backing Trump

    From your typing fingers to God’s ear. Let’s hope they bring him down SOON, before he can damage our nation any more than he already has. ;-(

    Pollyanna – No, Not a mental hospital, not now that he’s made it easier for the mentally ill to get their hands on guns!! No, he belongs in prison, definitely – hopefully, one w/ a nice view of a lovely golf course on which he’ll NEVER have the opportunity to play.

    They all need to go to Guantanamo Bay prison. They can make hotel Guantanamo great again! Toss the keys in the ocean and forget they were ever born!
    From treasurer to all his wives children to go and all appointed position to the ticket he had for election! They are all contaminated, and not one should go free.
    Seize their Ponzi scheme wealth , property, and put it to good use!
    All they are doing is running thief business through the White House and we are footing that bill too!

      Amen to all these spot-on comments. This deranged crook is ruining our country as well as his horrible associates and no talent family. And then take down every Republican who went along with him. Jail and political exile work wonders for defining our system and prove to the morons who voted for him that you do not wink at criminals like these!

    This is the best news I’ve heard. Yes, I agree, Trump and his family need to go to jail. They have robbed the American people. He gloats about his wins, abused his presidential powers, tries to incriminate those who oppose him, attempts to change any laws laid down by the Obama Administration. He is a man-child filled with hate, malice, envy, excoriates his opponents and will stop at nothing to get even. He is the world’s biggest con-man, a crook, a traitor and a pathological liar.

    I can not believe this man is the president.He has made America a joke all round the world he is dishonest liar crook he has conections with terrible people he cares about no one he will bring America to its knees

    Prosecutable charges, steel-framed evidence, impeccable legal staff, impartial judge and jury, unpardonable convictions, long jail terms, multiple count convictions with sequential jail terms, unprecedented public support, careful and consistent prosecution of staff and business associates actively engaged as agents or knowing accomplices convicted: ALL of this needs to happen and the sooner the better. This will not stop with Trump’s Tragedies as he and his cronies were hired as the potential fall guys for the entire political structure, Right and Left. The People need to finally wake up, take notice, educate, participate, and put capable, honest people in place for ALL branches of this government if we are to survive as a democratic republic. Love the people who are driving this political Renaissance and who are accepting the danger in telling the truth and overlooking their own safety.
