Joe Hoft at The Gateway Pundit interviewed retired Lieutenant Colonel and trained CIA intelligence officer Tony Shaffer on Thursday morning. Shaffer discussed the ‘permanent coup’ in Washington and the 2020 Election. This led to a shocking story about former US Attorney General Bill Barr.
Tony Shaffer began by discussing the permanent coup in Washington and the takeover of the government by the Democrats. He mentioned how he shared this in a talk in St. Louis a few years ago. He predicted what we are now seeing – major elements of the federal government are not adhering to their major purpose of defending the American people.
How do you all not recognize that whole elements of the federal government are compromised to their primary purpose of defending the interests of the American people? How do you not get that?..One of our parties no longer supports the fundamental concepts of our republic.”
Tony next discussed Big Tech and the censorship there and admitted that he was removed from Twitter for trolling Ray Epps, the individual who was present at the Capitol on Jan 6 who appeared to be from the Deep State.
Next Shaffer discussed his efforts after the 2020 Election involving a truck driver who was moving mail for the US Postal Service and who came out after the election and shared his story.
Shaffer worked on the Beth Page story after the election and he vetted the driver, Jesse Morgan. At the 10:00 mark in the video below Tony shares his story. After fully vetting Morgan, Tony decided to move forward with the story. He contacted his friends in law enforcement to get them on board with further investigating the matter (18-minute mark).
Next, Tony contacted his mentor and former Attorney General under President Reagan, Ed Meese (his friend and mentor) who knew AG Bill Barr. Meese contacted AG Barr and filled him in on what was going on and what was identified by Tony. Within 10 minutes Tony gets a call from AG Barr (21:00 mark):
Not 10 minutes go by Joe, and all the sudden I get a call from a 202 number. “Hey Tony this is Bill Barr, what’s going on?” And I go through and explain what we just talked about. And he says, “You need to stop. You are interfering with my investigation.” (What?) “Where is Mr. Morgan now?” And I told him we had him in a safe house… “You will stop now, you will turn him over to us immediately. You are now interfering in an FBI investigation.” I said and I explained to him that with all due respect the FBI is not the organization to be investigating this based on all the problems. “No there’re the ones that are working this, you have no authority to continue doing anything that you are doing!” And basically for the next 20 minutes he yelled at me on the phone.
Tony explained that he wanted to give Mr. Morgan whistleblower status but Barr wouldn’t hear it.
And I would argue that he broke the law by refusing to accept that as a premise of him going in [to the FBI to discuss what he saw and knows]… … So the next thing you know I’m gone off the investigation, Morgan is turned over and he goes away, never to be heard from again.
Tony doesn’t know what happened to Morgan (at the 24:00 mark):
So this tells me right there, the fix is in. If you can’t have the Attorney General. The Attorney General himself examine in detail what we developed as a team, rationally, not emotionally, and then make emotional demands that were not even supported by law, that tells you what Bill Barr was doing… …I will go on the record now and say Bill Barr did not do his job.
