Will the Donald forcefully assert control over the CIA spooks when he tours the CIA facility on Saturday afternoon.
He’s leaving his fingerprints on everything else, so why not. The problem is that the CIA is implicated in the Kennedy assassination and so much more evil. The only way to clean it up may be to burn it down.
When newly sworn-in President Donald Trump tours CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, on Saturday afternoon, the man he picked to lead the agency will not yet be in charge.
The war between Trump and the CIA boiled over into the U.S. Senate on Inauguration Day, as Republicans slammed Democrats for delaying the installation of Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo as Trump’s new spy chief.
The CIA has been locked in a battle with Trump over allegations that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind an effort to sway the election in Trump’s favor. Partisan wrangling over the CIA post just hours after Trump took the oath of office showed how politicized the agency has become.
As a result, Pompeo will spend at least one more weekend representing Kansas’ 4th Congressional District.
Former President Barack Obama’s appointee, John Brennan, resigned as director of the CIA effective at noon Friday. The CIA’s deputy director also stepped down.
For now, the CIA has delegated authority to the agency’s executive director, Meroe Park.
Park, the No. 3 in the CIA’s hierarchy, is in charge of the agency until a permanent director and deputy director take the helm. Park is a career CIA official, not a political appointee.
The CIA with it’s fake, phony #goldenshowers Trump dossier tried to smear the Donald last week. The snakes over there are a den of vipers waiting to strike. Drain the swamp, President Trump.
