From Jon Rappoport's 4-16-17 No More Fake News article entitled "U.S. Presidents Can Grant Immunity to Snooping Spies":
"Sharyl Attkisson, former CBS investigative reporter, recently spoke with 'a small group of reliable, formerly high-placed intelligence
officials.' They tipped her to surveillance tactics in the arsenal of
"Attkisson: 'U.S. Presidents have the power to issue secret
presidential directives that can authorize otherwise illegal acts
(theoretically in the country’s best interests). These directives may
come with pre-planned cover stories to be used in the event the
operation is exposed, and they come with indemnity for those involved,
giving them permission to lie about the operation or their involvement
without fear of prosecution… The public will rarely know about such
presidential directives since most who see them must sign agreements
that promise nondisclosure and consent to polygraphs.'
"That’s a blockbuster revelation.
"Guaranteed immunity for those involved in the spying/surveillance operation (and other types of operations).
"Plus permission for agents to lie about being involved.
"All in the interest of 'national security.' Unless it isn’t. Unless
a president wants to enact revenge on a personal enemy, or commit a
financial crime, or win an election, or protect a friend, or serve his
elite bosses, or advance a corporate goal, or…pretty much anything.
"He can act like a king.
"One of Attkisson’s intelligence sources told her the following: 'If
the work of targeting an individual cannot be accomplished by government
intel officers, it can be contracted out to third parties or to foreign
parties who aren’t bound by U.S. law.'"
