The CIA's War on Trump

John Brennan, director of the CIA

You couldn’t fault Donald J. Trump for concluding that the CIA is out to get him even before he starts his presidency. Former CIA officials Michael Morell, Michael Hayden and Philip Mudd have all denounced him. Plus, former CIA operations officer Evan McMullin ran against him as an independent presidential candidate.

Obama’s director of the CIA is John Brennan, who recently disclosed that he voted for the Communist Party (CPUSA) ticket when he was in college. He was hired by the CIA anyway and quickly rose through the ranks, even though the CPUSA was funded by Moscow and known to provide cover for Soviet espionage activities.

The liberal media haven’t made Brennan’s disclosure into a scandal and didn’t call for any investigations of Obama’s CIA.

Clearly, having an “intelligence” connection doesn’t mean you are intelligent or have good judgment. Making “America First” is not a requirement for serving in the CIA and other intelligence agencies. You can have numerous skeletons in your closet and even be a transgender. If you have any doubts, consider reading the CIA’s “Diversity and Inclusion Strategy (2016-2019).” It is Brennan’s masterpiece.

The line-up of former CIA personnel opposing Trump sounds impressive, except when you consider the fact that the CIA has a habit of getting things wrong. Democratic Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a former vice-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, once declared that “for a quarter century, the CIA has been repeatedly wrong about the major political and economic questions entrusted to its analysis.” Moynihan had introduced a bill to abolish the CIA. The late Lt. Gen. William Odom, then-director of the National Security Agency (NSA), said the CIA should be disbanded.

Trump critic Michael Hayden, who served as director of both the NSA and CIA, was on a list of “former national security officials” from Republican administrations who announced they wouldn’t vote for Trump. He was once photographed at a gala with former CIA and NSA analyst Edward Snowden, who stole and released classified information and is now living in Russia. Hayden can’t be faulted personally for that betrayal. But Snowden and other spy cases have to be considered when judging the reliability of products from the intelligence community, especially when they are transmitted anonymously through the press.

Under the headline, “CIA Judgment On Russia Built On Swell Of Evidence,” The New York Times reports that “many believe” there is “overwhelming circumstantial evidence” that the Russians tried to help Trump. The paper said “the conclusion that Moscow ran an operation to help install the next president is one of the most consequential analyses by American spy agencies in years.”

Such analyses can mean nothing and can, in fact, divert the attention of elected officials from the truth. Trump calls the verdict on alleged Russian involvement in the election “ridiculous.” It would not be the first ridiculous work product from the intelligence community. The CIA failed to predict the Soviet “collapse,” and then mistakenly assumed the collapse was real and not a strategic deception.

It is significant that The Washington Post, owned by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, broke the story about the CIA allegedly concluding that the Russians had somehow meddled in the U.S. elections by hacking into Democratic Party computers. The CIA has a $600 million contract with Amazon Web Services.

Former Post publisher Katharine Graham reportedly gave a speech in 1988 at the CIA headquarters, where she said, “We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things that the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”

If this was the case under Graham, the previous owner of the Post, how likely is it that such a relationship continues under an owner of a company that does business with the CIA?

Interestingly, Amazon CEO Bezos plans to attend President-elect Donald Trump’s meeting of tech-industry executives this Wednesday in New York. Perhaps Trump will ask Bezos whether the Post is being manipulated by political partisans in the Intelligence Community.

Trump has tweeted, “Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!” Or “fake news.”

In response to the CIA’s reported findings, the Trump transition office raised the matter of another mistake: “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.”

The discredited analysis concluding that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction (WMD) is most closely associated with former CIA director George Tenet. A Clinton holdover, Tenet had told President George W. Bush that finding WMD was a “slam dunk.” He was photographed giving an award to then-DIA intelligence analyst Ana Montes, who turned out to be a Castro spy. Again, Tenet is not personally responsible for this betrayal. But it is one of many spy cases that have corrupted the Intelligence Community.

President Bush’s problem was that he failed to clean house in the Intelligence Community before the war.

After he takes office, Trump should immediately clean house in the CIA and other intelligence agencies. But it may be the case that the charges being directed against him at the present time are designed to prevent just that. If Trump cleans house, he will be accused in the press of trying to purge intelligence officials with evidence of a Russian plot to elect Trump!

The American people have been saddled with an Intelligence Community that is full of what are called “insider spies.” The situation is so bad that a special paper has been published about a novel new way to deal with traitors. The idea is to provide a “safe refuge” and a secret process of “reconciliation” for them without threatening long prison terms or the death penalty. In this manner, the American people would hear nothing about spies being arrested and the damage they have done.

We know that the media picked sides in the presidential contest. Now we are seeing more evidence of how the CIA picked sides, to the point of engaging in what is an obvious effort to bring down the Trump presidency even before it begins.

Morell then changed the talking points to: “the Benghazi attacks were due to a video”, so it would fit Obama’s narrative. Liberal RAT / ROTS at their finest!!!!!!

      Scruffy-USN-Retired, you are right. How sad is it that one cannot cite the name of one Democrat who was not corrupt in one way or another. Add to them, all of the RINOs.

      C.I.A. war on Trump? Call me crazy, but I’m almost sure that the war will disappear on January 20, 2017. Actually the rank and file C.I.A. personnel will probably cheer when Trump is sworn in. According to all reports, the F.B.I. agents will actually celebrate the departure of the big-eared biped in the Oval Office. Trump should give the White House security an order for obama to be shown the back door of the White House when he arrives at the front door. What a disgrace the Indonesian National is! And let’s give credit where credit is due. The 65,454,010 obama voters who re elected obama in 2012 are even more disgracful because most of them are real American citizens.

      Hey liberal Democrats, name one positive thing that obama did, besides reading his teleprompters well.

      “Hey liberal Democrats, name one positive thing that obama did”

      Hey low information trump supporter, since you ask for just one: he took the risk to take out Osama Bin Laden. You don’t remember that?

      And because we’re talking about intelligence agencies and a Republican president, it’s worth pointing out that the last one, GWB, didn’t spend the time with his early intelligence briefings either. Those briefings clearly pointed to Osama Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda as a security threat of the highest order. Bush pooh poohed that and the 9/11 attacks months later were the cost of that willful ignorance.

      The incredible part of this sad saga is that every conspiracy theory under the sun is given credence by your crowd – but when actual real evidence points towards a real conspiracy, all we hear is crickets. I find myself longing for some paranoid anti communist, suspicious of the Soviets, real Republicans instead of the collaborators that you have become.

      withabeat, it was Bill Clinton who had several chances to capture bin Laden and turned them all down. As for the “risk” Obama took in the killing of bin Laden, it was fairly negligible — and the Pakistani doctor who gave us the information and assistance in the takedown is still languishing in the torture chambers where Obama abandoned him.

      In any case, bin Laden was small potatoes by the time we got him; other jihadi chiefs had taken his place, and more and more jihadist groups were popping up all over the place because they’d seen our president’s weakness. (And calling it “weakness” is giving him the benefit of the doubt.) So bin Laden is dead … but ISIS is very much alive, along with Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, the newly revivified Taliban, all the Muslim Brotherhood offshoots (including the ones in America), and all the other jihadist groups throughout the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, the Philippines, and, increasingly, Europe and the Americas. Great record for Obama.

      Columba, you say “it was Bill Clinton who had several chances to capture bin Laden and turned them all down”. Sure you’re not thinking of George W. Bush, who let bin Laden escape at Tora Bora, and then seemed to have no interest in pursuing him after that? Funny, isn’t it, how the Bush family had close ties to the bin Laden family?

      You are right in the sense that I know of no effort by Clinton to “capture” bin Laden. Killing him is a different story. I recall when Bill Clinton send in the cruise missiles to Al Quaeda training camps in Afghanistan – are you saying that doesn’t count?

      The counter terrorism chief Clinton hired, Richard A. Clarke, tried to wave his arms to get the attention of the new GWB administration, and get them to focus on bin Laden and Al Qaeda as an imminent threat, but the Bush folks didn’t want to hear about it. Here are quotes from Paul Wolfowitz at one of those meetings in 2001:

      “Well, I just don’t understand why we are beginning by talking about this one man bin Laden”

      “You give bin Laden too much credit. He could not do all these things like the 1993 attack on New York, not without a state sponsor. Just because FBI and CIA have failed to find the linkages does not mean they don’t exist.”

      Columba, you minimize the value in taking down this monster, who was still the head of al Qaeda. I remember the cheering and jubilation from Americans when we got bin Laden. Don’t make it sound like that didn’t matter to us.

      withabeat, you might want to read Richard Miniter’s book, “Losing Bin Laden.” Although it’s a bit outdated now (published in 2004), it gives a lot of documentation on the opportunities Clinton had to “get” bin Laden, whether for capturing or killing, and how he turned down all the opportunities. In any case, my point was that by the time we did “get” bin Laden, the jihadist threat had multiplied exponentially, way beyond the point at which killing bin Laden would make much difference. My response was to your claim that we were overlooking Obama’s great accomplishments, the only one of which you proposed (or could think of?) was the killing of bin Laden. Again, my point was that this accomplishment didn’t accomplish much in the long run. Jihadist attacks continue all over the world, including in America. And Obama continues to look the other way.

      In eight years the only positive thing to come from obutthead’s administration was to take out bin Laden. And even so, the way you speak of the incident it seems you think he did it himself. If you look at the picture of the room where everyone was sitting around the phone during the encounter, obama isn’t even sitting at the table. He is acting like he isn’t a part of anything and he had to be bullied into giving the order to go after bin Laden. So I don’t think we should be recommending him for sainthood. And with all the other fusterclucks he has accomplished while in office, this one thing isn’t enough to consider him a decent president. As I have said before, he will go down as the WORST president in history.

      withabeat, I guess you forgot about the Al Qaida WTC “trial run” with a van full of explosives in the parking garage of the WTC, the attack on the USS Cole, and the hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro where the Al Qaida operatives MURDERED an old Jewish man in a WHEELCHAIR by pushing him off the top deck onto the one below?

      Those all occurred on BILL CLINTON’S watch, genius, only HE was too busy diddling interns in the Oval Office to take notice, much less make ANY kind of punitive RESPONSE to said attacks, and the END RESULT was 9/11 as they grew BOLDER and MORE AGGRESSIVE because of Clinton’s TOTAL lack of action in response to their early attacks on Americans.

      Typical one-sided liberal view–Conservatives always wrong, liberals always RIGHT, no matter HOW big a mess they make of things!

      And P.S., Obama did not “risk” a damned THING to take out Bin Laden. It was the Navy SEALS who took all the “risk” in that operation. He was given Bin Laden’s location MANY MONTHS before, and did NOTHING with the information except DITHER about it until he was DESPERATE for some kind of “victory” to bolster his re-election. He “couldn’t bear to watch” his hero being offed and LEFT the situation room during the actual operation. And THEN he acted like KILLING him was some kind of SHAMEFUL act with that furtive “burial at sea” BS.

      The only assertions I have made today, in response to people claiming otherwise, are that:

      1) At least one good thing came from Obama. How can killing Osama bin Laden not be considered good? Isn’t there *one* thing we can agree on?

      2) Clinton *did* respond to early al Qaeda attacks, with cruise missiles. Yet, you too say he did not “make ANY kind of punitive RESPONSE to said attacks”. Please retract.

      I know this isn’t exactly a fact-based crowd here, but how does holding you to a few historical facts make me some left wing “Commucrat”?

      re: Trump’s War on the CIA, I leave you with this: will our intelligence agencies still be able to attract and retain the best and brightest, when their commander in chief to be has totally dismissed their value and professionalism? In my experience it’s not a good idea to demoralize your workforce.

      Your worldview may make you naively dismissive towards intelligence agencies, but I wouldn’t assume the same of Putin, formerly of the KGB. If, as reported, he has interfered with our elections, as an American I sure want to know! If he thought he could diminish the CIA, that may even be a primary motivation.

      We first have Bush tell us Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11, because he got that information from who? Then he tells us Saddam Hussien has WMD because that is what was told to him, and he believed it.

      Then we have Obama bin Davis telling us Osama bin Laden is dead, because that is what was told to him, and they dumped the body at sea, so no one could see, then he tell us of a video and Benghazi, ISIS is a JV team, Hillary killed Gaddafi, and Obama tells al-Assad of a “Red Line” just before he kills 400,000 of his people

      Killing Osama bin Laden was good, bad or indifferent because it ended what?

    The very fact that Brennan supported the subversive CPUSA and was allowed into ANY Government position let alone the CIA tells us that more than he supported the Communist takeover of America. Their success in taking over the young minds through the Government controlled education system and MSM (think Soros among others) illustrates the slippery slope America is on!

      Donald, it used to be that to get ANY government job, you had to submit everywhere you had ever lived or worked and a security check that crawled over your ENTIRE LIFE with a magnifying glass followed, and I GUARANTEE you, if they’d found that you even ever PASSED BY where a Communist rally was being held on the street, you probably would NOT get the job. I guess that has changed, since OBOZO moved into the White House, when an OPEN COMMUNIST can be appointed head of an American intelligence agency!

      Can one be a Muslim and a Constitutional American citizen?

      Sure, Muslims have stupidly been permitted to live here but Islam is a “my way or the scimitar” ideology.

      Every state needs to pass laws that permit the swearing of the Oath of Office ONLY on the Bible because if you don’t understand Christian principles and Christian-based law, you don’t understand our civic culture. Swearing an Oath of Office on anything but the Christian Bible is sedition.

    C.I.A. Judgment on Russia Built on Swell of Evidence
    The C.I.A.’s conclusion does not appear to be the product of specific new intelligence obtained since the election, several American officials, including some who had read the agency’s briefing, said on Sunday. Rather, it was an analysis of what many believe is overwhelming circumstantial evidence — evidence that others feel does not support firm judgments — that the Russians put a thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump, and got their desired outcome.

    It is unclear why the C.I.A. did not produce this formal assessment before the election, although several officials said that parts of it had been made available to President Obama in the presidential daily briefing in the weeks before the vote. But the conclusion that Moscow ran an operation to help install the next president is one of the most consequential analyses by American spy agencies in years.

      Politico’s Glenn Thrush, who was exposed in WikiLeaks emails sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers before publication, will be joining the New York Times to cover the White House, The Huffington Post reported Monday.

      “No worries Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to Podesta in an April 2015 email. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I ****** up anything.”

      The latest batch of emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta show New York Times reporter and CNBC anchor John Harwood giving the Clinton campaign tips about other candidates and bragging about feeling vindicated by provoking Donald Trump as a debate moderator.

      In a December 2015 email to Podesta, Harwood bragged about his much-criticized debate performance in which he asked Trump “Let’s be honest, is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign?”

    Our intelligence community has proven to be terribly inept. The FBI has embarrassed itself in the Hillary Email SHAM INVESTIGATION and CONCLUSION. The CIA has missed nearly EVERY major issue around the world. Now, they “claim” Russian hacking, but show no one any evidence.

    The issue is not WHO did the hacking, rather the seriousness of the CORRUPTION of the Democrats, EXPOSED in the CONTENT of the hacked emails. This is nothing more than an attempt to redirect attention away from the reality of Democrat CORRUPTION with their typical slight of hand tricks.

    For decades, personnel within the CIA, and their contractors, have built careers on the regime change strategy. Even as they create failed states, migrations, and tens of thousands dead, they still receive unabashed support in Washington, from both parties.
    But they have a problem with Trump, for with him their days are numbered. Therefore, they have brought the regime change nightmare to home, with all its hooligan propaganda.
    The CIA sacks and destroys secular governments. Now, with media and elitist and mob support, it brazenly meddles at home, and runs a risk from which the nation may never recover. Destruction of governments is the goal of CIA sponsored schism and chaos. The US is not immune from its threat.

    withabeat, your post is an example of an embarrassing moment in time. In eight years you point at the “courageous” leadership of the Liar-In-Chief to order the Seal Team 6 to carry out a long delayed attack on the other Muslim leader, no not obama, I am referring to Osama Bin Laden. Now that you mention it, I recall “unofficial” reports that obama was dithering and wavering about whether or not to follow his military experts advice to go after Bin Laden. According to those unnamed sources, some of his handlers, such as Valerie Jarrett and the savant, Joe Biden, asked him to get off the dime and act. Jarrett is obama’s puppeteer, and Biden occasionally spouts an obvious action that EVERYONE wants to mention but they are afraid to stick their necks out.

    And Bush did it? Are you still citing George W. Bush for obama’s eight-year fiasco? Do you really think that obama will get this lame blanket pass by the history chroniclers? Oh wait, I forgot that you are a liberal automaton who shows no intelligence and asks no questions about the liberal elite talking points.

    One can always tell when a liberal is getting desperate, namely, they start accusing the Republicans of creating false conspiracies. You know, like the “…vast right-wing conspiracy to get my husband, Bill Clinton.” Only the poor fool, Hillary, actually believed Slick Willy. Ironically, Hillary R. Clinton is supposed to be the “smartest woman in the world”. How could she not have known that Billy was a serial rapist, sexual harasser, and world class liar?

      joeconservative – you need to work on your reading comprehension. I simply responded to another post: “name one positive thing that obama did”. If you can’t find a single positive thing from Obama, you too are being willfully ignorant. Osama bin Laden *is* dead, and that counts.

      I thought I did a nice job of framing that in terms of the context of this article – which is about Donald Trump disparaging and ignoring our intelligence community. Pointing out what happened after the last time a president did this – the attacks of 9/11 – is not any kind of a blanket statement about GWB or Obama. It is a simple truth.

      To say that I am so desperate that I am “accusing the Republicans of creating false conspiracies” makes me laugh! How can I “accuse” someone of doing something they are doing right out in the open? Conspiracy theories have been a hallmark of the right in recent times, including by Trump himself, with his Birther nonsense. Is that DC pizza shop incident part of a “real” conspiracy?

      withabeat, are you really still trying to use denial about the history of the charlatan from Indonesia? He has presented no ORIGINAL history documents to prove that he is what he says he is.
      “…birther nonsense…”??? Question: Why does obama continue to keep his claimed August 1961 birth record in Honolulu, a state secret? In point of fact, why does he keep ALL of his ORIGINAL bona fides secret? It’s almost as if obama lacks proof that he is an American citizen. On January 21, 2017, Donald Trump will probably task Attorney General Jeff Sessions to bring a law suit against obama. Lord knows that there are lots of reasons to do so. Such a law suit must make verification of obama’s American citizenship status a critical point, for a Federal judge to grant discovery requests. After all, if obama is found to be an Indonesian national, he could not have legally signed the Obama Care bill into law, right? Oh, did I say that Indonesian law requires that all students attending state supported schools, must be Indonesian citizens?

      The “certified copy of obama’s birth record” is a joke. There are so many inconsistencies with the genuine “Records of Live Births” of people who were born in Honolulu in August, 1961, that one wonders why it was fabricated in an obviously haphazard manner. A twelve year-old familiar with the computer program “Photo Shop” could do a better creation job.
