As Hillary Clinton’s campaign adviser in 2016, Sullivan pushed the Clinton-funded fake news that Trump had a “secret hotline” to Russia. (This is what John Durham is investigating right now — how the FBI counterintelligence investigation got started.)
“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank. This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia. … We can only assume that federal authorities will now explore this direct connection between Trump and Russia as part of their existing probe into Russia’s meddling in our elections.” – Jake Sullivan, October 31, 2016https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/statement-from-jake-sullivan-new-report-exposing-trumps-secret-line-communication-russia cited in https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/feb/14/white-house-adviser-sullivan-gets-fresh-scrutiny-r/
As National Security Adviser to President Biden, Jake Sullivan just last week went on to push the story that Russia was planning a false flag to justify an invasion of Ukraine.
“The Defense Department has publicly warned that Russian operatives were planning a false-flag operation….alleged there is a Russian plot to fabricate a graphic video ― allegedly staged with explosions and corpses ― as pretext for an attack on Ukraine.https://www.huffpost.com/entry/national-security-adviser-jake-sullivan-russia-us-alarm-ukraine_n_6209405be4b0ccfb3e56b643
“He [Sullivan] also repeated State Department spokesman Ned Price’s claim that Russia is working to fabricate a pretext for invasion with a “false flag operation” in eastern Ukraine. Just like Price, Sullivan offered no evidence for the claim.https://www.rt.com/russia/549116-russia-ukraine-white-house-sullivan/
Russia has strenuously denied this:
Moscow has repeatedly rejected US allegations it plans to invade Ukraine as “fake news.”https://www.rt.com/russia/549116-russia-ukraine-white-house-sullivan/
“In comments shared directly with Newsweek, Russia’s top envoy in the United States has dismissed a stark warning issued by President Joe Biden‘s administration alleging that Moscow may imminently order military action against Ukraine during or after China’s Olympic truce, pointing out that Washington has offered no proof to back the claims.”https://www.newsweek.com/russia-envoy-us-has-no-evidence-ukraine-invasion-during-after-olympics-1678666
Sullivan uses words only for effect:
“An invasion could begin at any time.”Jake Sullivan – https://www.c-span.org/video/?c5001422/national-security-adviser-jake-sullivan-potential-russian-invasion-ukraine
He admits that credibility is all-important:
“‘First, we’re not putting forward this intelligence to start a war, which has happened in the past, Jake. We are putting forward this intelligence to stop a war. And I think that fundamentally gives it, at the outset, a different level of credibility.”Sullivan to Jake Tapper – https://www.huffpost.com/entry/national-security-adviser-jake-sullivan-russia-us-alarm-ukraine_n_6209405be4b0ccfb3e56b643
But even mainstream media have called him out:
“You’ve been warning about the Russians using a false flag operation to justify invading Ukraine. That’s a strong claim to make without a shred of evidence.”CNN Anchor Jake Tapper to Jake Sullivan https://www.dailywire.com/news/without-presenting-a-shred-of-evidence-jake-tapper-grills-jake-sullivan-over-claims-russia-planned-a-false-flag-op
American lives and interests are at stake and Sullivan has negative credibility.
We need someone in the position who people can trust, especially considering that Russia has indeed used false flag tactics in the past:
“Russia indeed has a history of using false-flag operations, one example being in 1968 when the Kremlin used its intelligence service to create false-flag incidents to justify Soviet military intervention in Czechoslovakia.”https://www.huffpost.com/entry/national-security-adviser-jake-sullivan-russia-us-alarm-ukraine_n_6209405be4b0ccfb3e56b643
Sullivan sits at the heart of the worst political scandal in American history.
Sullivan should be replaced immediately, says Senator Marsha Blackburn:
K.T. McFarland, former Deputy National Security Adviser to President Trump, told Bill Hemmer, Fox News, that Sullivan was actively spreading dirt on Trump in 2016.
In addition, she noted, his wife oversees the Durham investigation which could ensnare Sullivan.
Indeed, Margaret Goodlander reports to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Senator Charles Grassley has said she should recuse herself in this matter.
Hemmer reminded viewers that Sullivan was Hillary Clinton’s adviser during the Benghazi.
Remember this exchange?
Ben Rhodes, to Jake Sullivan and others: “At least you’re only a liar. Could be worse – we’re liars and also allegedly leakers. So you’ve got that going for you, which is something.”
Jake Sullivan: “We’re only lying footsoldiers [sic]. You’re lying masterminds. That’s cooler.”
Reply from someone else, to Sullivan: “I prefer that we go by henchmen.”
