Wayne Simmons, 66, served his country for most of his adult life. First in the Navy, enlisting in 1973, and soon after that in the shadowy world of undercover operations.

But at the same time he was coming up the Intel ladder another even more covert shadow was rising in America. It was, beginning with the mid-70s Church Committee in the Senate, the ascendancy of an anti-American establishment inside of the American elite. That group would slowly gain power over the years, in the process doing all they could to cripple U.S. Intelligence.

Wayne Simmons would become a victim of their sordid quest.

According to Simmons, he spent 27 years in the covert world as a contractor with the CIA in sensitive posts that took him from Central America to Afghanistan. He was in that war torn Asian locale as late as 2010, though officially retired since 2000.

After his service he became an unpaid analyst for Fox News Channel from 2002-2014. That’s where he ran afoul of the Clinton Machine.

Should Hillary Clinton run again in 2020?

In 2012 Hillary Clinton was serving, mostly herself, as the Secretary of State in the Obama administration. In September of that year our Libyan embassy was overrun in Benghazi. Ambassador Chris Stevens and others were killed by an Islamist mob. Obama, Clinton, and their cohorts at first lied about the attack and then ignored it ever happened. The blood still stains their hands.

Veterans of the Intel world like Simmons, and this analyst, were outraged at this betrayal of U.S. personnel in the field. Simmons had been saying as much on Fox News. That put him on the Clinton radar.

Two weeks after he again laid the blame for the attack square on the shoulders of Hillary Clinton on a show on Fox News, he got a knock on his door. It was April 9, 2014.

Federal agents interviewed him in his home. 18 months later he was arrested on charges involving fraud against the government. The apparent scope of his legal railroading defies imagination. The judge and his own attorney were old associates who allegedly bartered Simmons’ fate between themselves. The process was not to the benefit of Simmons.

It resulted in Simmons being found guilty of a charge he only found out about at the last minute. This was after a deal had supposedly been worked out with the prosecution. The same judge, T.S. Ellis, also handled the Manafort and Mike Flynn cases.

Simmons then spent 25 months of his 33 month sentence in a federal prison. He was released this last October 18th.

Today he resides in Annapolis, Maryland. He is working on clearing his name and various other projects. Before this article I came to know of him. I now consider him a friend. One that has been wronged by those who have also wronged America for quite awhile.

It’s time that score got evened.
