Few people doubted that Hillary Clinton was going to win the presidential race in the USA. However following the election results, billionaire Donald Trump becomes the 45th POTUS. The news proved to be a real shock to the global politics and denoted the intensification of the anti-Trump campaign aimed at disputing his victory.
Great Britain was the one most engaged in discrediting Donald Trump after the political elite had negotiated with Hillary Clinton for the status of privileged commercial and economic partner of the U.S. during and after Brexit. All hopes had been for the ex-Secretary of State.
Today by a prior arrangement we publish an interview with an MI6 operative Richard Jones which he gave to us as insurance in case something happened to him. We haven't been able to get in touch with out informer for some time, so we believe it is our duty to keep our promise and make the interview available to public for consideration.
·Before we start discussing the anti-Trump campaign, tell us why you went for the interview?
·This is my protection in case something happens to me or my family.
·Are you saying that MI6 wipes off its own operatives from the map?
·Accidents take place and usually stay unnoticed by the public.
·Has Christopher Steele's example had an impact on you?
·No, it hasn't.
·Have you met him?
·I'd met him a couple of times before he left MI6 in 2009.
·Steele's information, is it worth something?
·MI6 has a stupendous Trump archive. And now there is no opportunity to distinguish the truth from the fiction invented by the operatives.
·Alright, let's get back to the subject of our interview. What was the response of your colleagues to Trump's victory?
·I remember the election day full well. We had been working round the clock for days and when it was announced that Trump had won the election we, just like many others, were puzzled, I would even say dazed by what had happened. All our efforts were fruitless.
·What kind of efforts?
·To discredit Trump.
·Could you tell more about that?
·British government staunchly supported Hillary Clinton after former PM David Cameron reached an agreement with her.
·And what was this agreement about?
·It was related to the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.
·And how is Brexit relevant here?
·Brexit means that Great Britain will have to review its economic relations with other countries and significantly change them. Clinton's victory would give Britain the status of a privileged economic partner unlike all other countries under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership when it is finally pushed through. In that way negative effect of Brexit would be minimal.
·But Cameron's position was always pro-European.
·Cameron had been up to date about the plan since the very beginning. His commitment to the European Union is just a peacockery. Ex-PM's goal was to make it look like an attempt to keep Britain in the EU. Well, he succeeded and then resigned so Brexit supporters with Theresa May in the lead could go further.
·And Trump won...
·Yes, and disrupted our plans. We had no agreements with Trump, not even a single contact. When he won, the highest ranks in MI6 and British political elite had gone mad, and today they continue looking for the guilty.
·That is the reason for your concern.
·Could you expand on your assignment?
·Searching for and, if necessary, creating the damaging and sensitive information that could harm Trump as a presidential candidate, and now as president-elect.
·So the work continues?
·It has never stopped. We have a lot of prepared data on Trump that could irretrievably ruin his reputation.
·And you are going to publish it.
·I don't know whether MI6 is going to publish it or not. But this data is also in my possession and I keep it as a part of my insurance.
·How could the data be made available to the public?
·By means of the U.S. media that support Clinton. We pass all information on Trump to Clinton's team and the rest is their part.
·Let's return to Trump and Britain. What is next?
·Brexit supporters and their American allies, I mean Clinton and the U.S. Democratic Party, are not going to surrender.
·What could be their goal now?
·To impeach Trump and get rid of him.
·Do you believe this is possible?
·Brexit supporters have wide economic interests. The stakes are too high! Trump is unpredictable and if Britain loses the U.S. support in the process of leaving the EU, then it will face multibillion losses. The British government can't allow that, and Clinton's political ambitions have also not been satisfied, so I have no doubts that our work will go on.
·Thank you for the interview.
