Democrats and leftist news media turn backs on CIA case officer’s calls for help in Italian prison
While officeholding Democrats and their cohorts in the nation’s news media shed tears for illegal aliens who disregard U.S. immigration law, protect criminal aliens from federal law enforcement and promulgate an enormous amount of propaganda, the pleas of a CIA case officer being incarcerated for performing her counter-terrorism duties went unheard by the Obama administration.
Former President Barack Obama and his Director of the CIA John Brennan ignored a European-born CIA agent’s pleas for help and “left her to fend for herself” in an Italian prison,” said retired federal law enforcement official John Leckie .
“Yet, as luck would have it, Donald Trump was elected President despite the hatred, lies and accusation directed against him. Which benefited those Americans serving their country such as CIA case officer Sabrina De Sousa, 61, As well as military warriors being punished for actually fighting a war and law enforcement officers defending themselves in some of the most violent cities in the U.S.,” Leckie noted.
Trump has repeatedly shown the nation that he has tremendous respect and devotion for military members, law enforcement officials and those who serve in the intelligence community. After the election, CIA Officer De Sousa’s situation addressed by the Trump Administration for which she is grateful.
Just days before President Trump’s inauguration, in January, 2017 — a day in which grown men and women in the news business cried, sulked and resorted to name calling — Tucker Carlson at Fox News Channel did a report on the CIA case officer Ms. De Sousa.
Carlson introduced Sabrina De Sousa, a Portuguese-American convicted of kidnapping… a member of the terrorist group al-Qaida
Carlson told his viewers that she had been convicted of kidnapping by the Italian court for her alleged abduction of the Muslim imam Abu Omar. The radical Islamist alleged “kidnapped” — although CIA agents have said be was “captured” — in Milan and subsequently underwent torture, according to the Italian news media.
Fortunately for De Sousa, in spite of the Deep State’s illegal actions and the MSM’s constant defamation of the Republican candidate in the 2016 election, Donald Trump won the presidency and De Sousa shared the following:
“I personally benefited from the Trump effect. I was in Portugal when President Trump won but was not yet in office. Looming in my future was an extradition from Portugal, to a prison in Italy scenario. Obama’s State Department consular section at the Lisbon Embassy contacted me once, only after a news article saying they had never bothered to do so.
“But this all changed during the transition when the Embassy consular officer called several times. When the Portuguese court refused to turn over my passport, the Embassy cancelled it and reissued me a ten year passport instead of the one trip travel document. The Consular officer and lawyer traveled to Porto prison twice to meet me and pass messages back to Washington. I was released at the 11th hour. No extradition – no prison in Italy.”
Currently De Sousa is serving a three year sentence via probation with numerous conditions, including police checks between 11pm and 6am. She has to incur five hour travel to do community service at a house for minors run by a police officer outside Rome where she now lives. It’s an unusually long distance for such an ordeal but De Sousa does it.
“It never ceases to amaze me how Americans and many of their leaders care nothing for the brave men and women in the military, the intelligence committee and law enforcement while their hearts ‘bleed’ for illegal aliens, some of whom are murderers, rapists, drug traffickers, child sex crimes and other offenses,” declares Peter Manning, a former police commander and prosecuting attorney.
