  • GEN Michael Hayden: 'Getting close' to intelligence community revolt

    Washington Examiner ^ | 19 SEP 2018 | Daniel Chaitin
    "Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said "it's getting close" to the time President Trump's intelligence agency leaders stand up to their boss about his declassification order and quit if he doesn't back down." ""Sooner or later, we will come to a point for what the president demands is so egregious ... that the right thing for them to do, to signal the alarm, to send up the flare is to say if you want this done, Mr. President, it will have to be done by somebody else," Hayden said Wednesday morning on CNN."

    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan risked damaging the intelligence community with his anti-Trump comments, retired Adm. Michael Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told "Fox News Sunday." Mullen's comments came as several former intelligence officials appeared on Sunday talk shows, including Brennan -- who floated the possibility of taking legal action against the president. "I think John's an extraordinary servant of the country, but I think he has been incredibly critical of the president, and I think that has put him in a political place which actually does more damage for the intelligence community -- which is...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Sunday that he thinks former CIA Director John Brennan's rhetoric is becoming an issue "in and of itself." "John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself," Clapper said on CNN's "State of the Union." "John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind." Brennan's claims drew criticism from some in the intelligence community who said the timing was suspect. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) on Thursday took aim at Brennan for "purport[ing] to know, as fact, that the Trump campaign...

    Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell thinks that intelligence agencies were too harsh to Trump during the campaign and presidential transition, according to an interview released Monday. Morell, who left the CIA in 2013 after serving as its acting director twice, endorsed Hillary Clinton in an August 2016 New York Times op-ed. Politico’s Susan Glassner asked Morell if getting involved was a mistake and the former CIA official said that it wasn’t, but that “there were downsides to it that I didn’t think about at the time.” “I was concerned about what is the impact it would have on the...

Frank Montoya Jr. told Business Insider that the intelligence community is frustrated the president does not rail against Russia to the same degree he shares his criticism of the Justice Department and intelligence agencies. "There is a lot of anger in the FBI (the entire intelligence community, for that matter) over how this president will say nary a negative word about the Russians, but will insult us every chance he...

    Blackwater founder Erik Prince, ex-CIA officer John Maguire, and Oliver North are advising President Trump to create his own private global spy network, which would report directly to him and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.  At this point, President Trump is surrounded by treasonous US Intelligence Agencies, which are part of the vast Deep State network seeking to overthrow his Presidency.   They are working with Special Counselor Robert Mueller to impeach him, and quite frankly they are quickly moving forward.  Mueller has let it be known he has made a deal with General Michael Flynn, which is nothing but a...

    For the debut of his MSNBC show this morning, Hugh Hewitt scored the first news network interview with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Debunking an assertion made by some, Pompeo said he couldn’t “imagine a statement that is anymore false” than the notion that Trump isn’t interested in intel. Pompeo stated that he personally meets with Trump for 35-40 minutes virtually every day, that Trump is an “avid consumer” of intel, and asks great questions. View the video here.

  • Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump

    02/15/2017 6:23:06 PM PST · by springwater13 · 156 replies
    U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter. The officials’ decision to keep information from Mr. Trump underscores the deep mistrust that has developed between the intelligence community and the president over his team’s contacts with the Russian government, as well as the enmity he has shown toward U.S. spy agencies. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump accused the agencies of leaking information to undermine him. In some of these cases of withheld information, officials have decided not to...

    President Trump has nominated his new CIA chief, Mike Pompeo. An evangelical Christian, Pompeo is a well-respected figure in the national security community. He is also an army veteran, and a staunch pro-life advocate. Two years ago, Pompeo gave a Church speech where he said Muslims who think Islam is “the only way” needed to be dealt with. “This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer,” Pompeo told the church-goers, according to Press TV. “These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe...

    The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming. This all started when Hillary Clinton reversed what Barack Obama had started four years earlier in a debate with Mitt Romney who actually stated the Russians were a problem. The only thing is that she stated that all 17 intelligence agencies agreed that the Russians had hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Though technically correct there are “17” intelligence agencies, Ms. Clinton knows that these agencies “agreeing” is a hoax. My initial reaction to the statement was a logical and rational one. I stated Mr. Trump should have replied to her: “Why...

    Donald Trump may have thrown fuel on to his feud with the Central Intelligence Agency, through what he apparently intended as a peace offering. Traveling to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia in what the White House pointed out was Trump’s first official act in office, Trump stood before the agency’s memorial to its dead officers and delivered an often self-referential and highly political speech that included an untruthful claim that his inauguration was better attended than those of Barack Obama.

    After the slap down in his inaugural address against the elites and picking a fight with the intel community and the military industrial complex in State Dept, I'm not quite sure if Trump truly knows or perhaps he does know how entrenched those career people are. Different presidents come and go but these people are there seemly forever and do what they want to do and will go around a presidents viewpoint and disregard what the President wants. Reagan had problems with them in 1980s and I fear that they may do dastardly things against President Trump . I'm not...
  • CIA Director John Brennan takes aim at Donald Trump for his criticism of the intelligence community

    Adding another chapter to the intense conflict between Donald Trump and the intelligence community, CIA Director John Brennan on Sunday sharply criticized the incoming president for equating spy agencies to Nazi Germany and suggested that he needed to focus more seriously on the security issues facing the nation. “What I think Mr. Trump has to understand is that this is more than being about him, and it's about the United States and our national security,” Brennan said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday." “And he has to make sure that now he's going to have the opportunity to do...
