New Report:
President Trump said he’d "brand" an FBI informant a “spy” because it would play well in news media

May 24, 2018

Chronicle report

By Rex D. Cain

(NATIONAL) – A “big lie” (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda. “The expression was coined by Adolph Hitler when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously."

That passage above is from a Wikipedia explanation of how Adolph Hitler described in his book how using the “big lie” could manipulate the masses. It came from Chapter Ten and is quoted in this passage below in Wikipedia from an English translation of Mein Kampf:

“All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

The big lie also comes into a play in a report prepared during World War 2 by the United States Office of Strategic Services in describing Hitler's psychological profile. The report describes Hitler’s modus operandi as to:

“Never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it."

And now we come to a new report by the Associated Press which says President Trump told a confidant this week that he aimed "to brand" an FBI informant on his campaign a "spy" because he thought it sounded more nefarious and “would resonate more in the media and with the public.”

The AP report says this new “branding” of the spy by Trump is part of the President’s ongoing attempts to “discredit the special counsel’s Russia investigation as “spygate,” part of a newly invigorated strategy embraced by his Republican colleagues to raise suspicions about the probe that has dogged his presidency since the start.”

Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that the FBI has been caught in a “major SPY scandal.” There is no known factual basis for that statement. There is no "there" there.

The AP report says Trump now is zeroing in on (and at times embellishing) reports that a longtime U.S. government informant “approached members of his 2016 campaign during the presidential election in a possible bid to glean intelligence on Russian efforts to sway the election.”

The story also says Trump has told “confidants in recent days” that recent news of this informant “was potential evidence that the upper echelon of federal law enforcement has conspired against him, according to three people familiar with his recent conversations but not authorized to discuss them publicly.”
