Former CIA Director Regrets How Intel Agencies Treated Trump

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 agency, right? Very concerned about that, thought that through. But I don’t think I fully thought through the implications,” Morell said.

    Politicizing a bureau of the federal government is a tactic of a Marxist nation. No federal agent who does this should escape prosecution for tampering with the election process.
    A good bit of the hysteria behind the Russia, Russia, Russia bleating of the media is an attempt to find in the Trump election what they already strongly suspect existed in the Clinton camp just prior to the 2016 election.
    “They did it too” would go a long way in blunting any prosecution of any far left people who broke the law.
