Julian Assange: Hillary Clinton, U.S. Intelligence Pushing Pence Takeover Of Presidency
editor Julian Assange has claimed that the CIA is hoping to impeach
President Donald Trump and replace him with warhawk Mike Pence in order
to continue their policy of endless warfare. He has also claimed that
Hillary Clinton is pushing for the same outcome.

MINNEAPOLIS – On
the heels of the explosive release of Wikileaks’ “largest ever
publication of confidential documents” originating from the CIA,
Wikileaks editor Julian Assange recently revealed startling information
regarding the intelligence community’s plans to impeach President Donald
Trump and replace him with Mike Pence, his vice president.
Assange, tweeting early Tuesday morning,claimed that two intelligence officials close
to Vice President Mike Pence “stated privately this month that they are
planning on a Pence takeover.” However, as Assange noted, they did not
say if Pence was aware of the plan or if he had agreed to it.
more surprising was the revelation that the push for a “Pence takeover”
goes beyond the intelligence community. Another tweet fromAssange asserted that Hillary Clinton “stated privately this month that she is quietly pushing for a Pence takeover” as “Pence is predictable hence defeatable.”As MintPress has previously noted,
a major cornerstone of Trump’s negotiation strategy and politicking is
his unpredictability – a clear point of concern among U.S. establishment
the suggestion that such a “takeover” could be taking place may be
shocking to some, it is not altogether surprising, given that the
intelligence community’s hostility towards Trump has been evident for
U.S. intelligence, which largely backed Hillary Clinton over
Trump in the 2016 election, has been connected to the numerous leaks
that have caused substantial embarrassment and scandal at the White
House since Trump’s ascension to the presidency — most notably, the resignation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Interestingly, Assange’s claims of a planned takeovercame after his recent criticism of
Trump for giving the CIA a “blank check” to perform drone strikes on
terrorists. Assange remarked that Trump’s clear concession to the CIA
“signals that bullying, disloyalty & incompetence pays.”
decision to give U.S. intelligence this kind of power seems to suggest
that this may have been an attempt at appeasing an intelligence
community that has been actively workingto undermine his administration.
Following this logic, it would seem that Trump is attempting to adopt
the “Cold War 2.0” approach touted by former president Barack Obama and
Trump’s former challenger Hillary Clinton in order to avoid the same
fate that befell Flynn.
Trump’s recent attempts to show that he can conform to the hawkish
stance endemic to the “deep state,” his lack of predictability still
makes his vice president a much more attractive choice for the powers
that have long directed the course of U.S. policy. Compared to Trump,
Pence has voiced a much more stern approach to U.S.-Russian relations,
promisingto hold Russia “accountable” andalsosupport ing the intelligence community’s assertion that Russia hacked the U.S. election.
Trump, in contrast, has been reluctant to adopt these positions. In addition,Pence’s intimate involvementin Flynn’s resignation also suggests that he is more willing to work with deep state interests than the president.
Pence’s attractiveness to the intelligence community likely has more to
do with his support for expanded war efforts, withNewsweek calling the
vice president “a hawk’s hawk.” Pence has voiced support for the war in
Iraq, increases in defense spending and greater U.S. intervention in
Middle Eastern countries like Syria. Pence has also backed regime change
in Syria,co-sponsoring a bill intended
to “support a democratic transition in Syria” and to keep sanctions
against the Assad government in place. Pence is alsomuch more anti-Iran and even more pro-Israel than Trump.
of any efforts Trump may make to support the intelligence community’s
warmongering foreign policy, his vice president remains a much more
attractive choice for those who seek to ensure that the U.S.’
long-standing policy of imperialism, nation-building and perpetual war
can continue indefinitely and without any unpredictable interruptions.
