Skip to comments.White House denies planning private global spy network to circumvent U.S. agencies

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday the Trump administration is not preparing to set up a private global spy network to circumvent U.S. intelligence agencies.
"I haven't asked [President Trump], but it's not something that's currently in the works," Sanders said at the daily White House press briefing.
The denial followed a report in The Intercept that the administration was considering reliance on private spies to avoid "deep state" biases against Trump and to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo supplemental information.
The idea reportedly is being considered at the urging of Blackwater founder Erik Prince and Oliver North, the Iran-Contra figure turned conservative political commentator.

A private spy network?
You mean, like Hillary had in Libya?
Sounds like something from a Tom Clancy novel and I’d frankly be deeply disappointed if it hasn’t already been up and running for decades.
No point Obama already did it ,LOL
We already have one: Global-GPS.
This is great! These lowlifes created two stories out of thin air...first, the secret network. Then the denial of a secret network. Perhaps they can generate more stories by establishing a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of this. Then more stories about the corruption of the special prosecutors office. One could make a journalistic career career out of this with not ever having to report the truth...I hope the media doesn’t get wind of this idea. Otherwise, somebody might call them ‘fake media.’
When is Jumpin Jeff Sessions, the Southern dandy, going to appoint a special counsel to look into this?
Globally they are known as 'human beings.'
In the U.S. they are colloquially known as the people.
The rats and the lying media always get two stories for the price of one: accuse the president of something baseless, then accuse him of denying it’s true.
i hope they are canary traps, cause these idiots fall for it every time. Could be two good one these last couple of days. Draining the swamp takes work.
Seems like the ONLY OPTION for Trump, considering the degree that the Deep State is flat-out LYING to him on a regular basis.
When reported i said FAKE NEWS
You mean the think-tanks that have existed for decades?
The initial story sounded juvenile.
They can call it the campus...
Notice that Oliver North's getting tossed in this fabrication about a private spy network? It's a Partisan Media Shill counterattack, and probably was prepared in advance by their agitprop coordinators over at the DNC. Thanks ColdOne.
Thanks for the ping SC. I’ve been hoping for a statement from Ollie North on this but haven’t seen one. My first thought upon seeing the story was that John Semmens was the author...
Notice that North is also NRA head... and that the rats were particularly keen to associate the NRA with the Russians with that Russian spy chick.
