Trump has signaled that he intends to reform the U.S. intelligence establishment --- It looks like THEY WERE NOT AMUSED --- Is it time for Trump to DOUBLE DOWN ???
Does anybody NOT believe that many of the “Career Professionals” in the various U.S. intelligence services aren’t also [gladly] willing to be partisan "political hacks" ???
In case you missed it, President Elect Donald Trump is getting briefed today by an official delegation [gaggle] of top U.S. intelligence types about the alleged hacking of the 2016 American elections by the Russian’s led by Putin.Yesterday, some the official leading lights of the Obama-led U.S. intelligence services testified before a U.S. Senate Committee prominently led by that old “Republican” war horse John McCain. The upshot of that hearing was that everything that had been said before was repeated once more with feeling. That also means that no new evidence of the alleged Russian election hack was put forward; but everybody there agreed that it happened.
TRUMP REMAINED RIGHTFULLY SCEPTICALSeveral news stories today say that Trump is going into his meeting with the intelligence guys openly skeptical about what they have on the Russian’s --- the phrases, “WITCH HUNT” or "POLITICAL WITCH HUNT" seem to be the operative buzz.
Let’s see if Trump comes out of this “briefing” and doubles down on his openly-expressed doubt about all of this stuff.
Don't forget, Trump has signaled that he intends to make some changes in/to the U.S. intelligence services. The "career" intelligence folks can't be happy with that. Trump needs to clearly link all that to his crusade to "Drain the Swamp" in Washington.
LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT !!!
