These days, President Trump is in his own war against the CIA and other parts of the intelligence community (IC).
In his case, he has overtly criticized the IC and called them disseminators of fake news and lies. He claims he’s putting an end to foreign wars of conquest. He’s already canceled a major Globalist trade treaty, the TPP.
But the IC believes it owns the Presidency and sets his agenda.
This is not a recent assumption. It goes all the way back to the early days of the CIA; Eisenhower, Kennedy.
In 2016, the IC leadership decided Trump would be a threat to their power, so they leaked/invented information about the Russians influencing the election on behalf of Trump. This effort was aimed at corroding his right to claim that he was the legitimate president.
The war continues.
The IC doesn’t want presidents with independent ideas.
They’re the bosses, and they intend to keep it that way.
