Former CIA Chief ​Admits ​the Deep State Is Withholding Intelligence​ from Trump​

Former CIA Director Regrets How Intel Agencies Treated Trump

Michael Morell was CIA’s director under Former President Barack Obama’s regime, from 2012 to 2013 respectively, and he gave a lengthy interview with Politico, in which he admitted he became “political” during the 2016 election cycle, i.e. he endorsed Hillary and, after that, he criticized Donald Trump, the new POTUS. What’s even more shocking is the fact that Michael Morell said that the CIA was withholding daily intelligence briefs from Donald Trump after he became President Elect.

Also, Morell, who departed with the CIA in 2013, expressed his sorrow about intelligence agencies being too harsh with Donald Trump,both during the campaign and in the transition phase, in the interview released a couple of days ago.

This is the single most bizarre report I have seen in a long while. What in the world is going on in the intelligence infrastructure? Was it completely taken over by ultra-left activists during Obama’s years? Holy cow. This guy, is he serious? He didn’t think what was and is going on is a problem? Just that they “were too harsh?”

The journalist who led the interview asked former CIA boss whether getting “politically involved” was a mistake. Morell denied any wrong doing/mistakes, while adding 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 agency, right? Very concerned about that, thought that through. But I don’t think I fully thought through the implications,”

“So, let’s put ourselves here in Donald Trump’s shoes. So, what does he see? Right? He sees a former director of CIA and a former director of NSA, Mike Hayden, who I have the greatest respect for, criticizing him and his policies. Right? And he could rightfully have said, ‘Huh, what’s going on with these intelligence guys?’ Right?

“And then he sees a former acting director and deputy director of CIA criticizing him and endorsing his opponent. And then he gets his first intelligence briefing, after becoming the Republican nominee, and within 24 to 48 hours, there are leaks out of that that are critical of him and his then-national security advisor, Mike Flynn.”

“And so, this stuff starts to build, right? And he must have said to himself, ‘What is it with these intelligence guys? Are they political?’ The current director at the time, John Brennan, during the campaign occasionally would push back on things that Donald Trump had said,”

“Then he becomes president, and he’s supposed to be getting a daily brief from the moment he becomes the president-elect. Right? And he doesn’t. And within a few days, there’s leaks about how he’s not taking his briefing. So, he must have thought—right?—that, ‘Who are these guys? Are these guys out to get me? Is this a political organization? Can I think about them as a political organization when I become president?’”

They have controlled the machinery for so long that they never thought they’d be held accountable. Now the swamp dwellers are in full panic mode. Time to get a few to turn state’s evidence against this anti-American cabal within the government.

How long have Leftists like Oliver Stone and Michael Moore been peddling conspiracy theories about the spy agencies setting up a shadow government? Now that there’s evidence of it actually happening, the Left is either cheering for the bad guys or deathly silent.
