Hints are spilling out at the seams, however, that there’s a full on war taking place beneath the surface in Washington. We have stories coming out everywhere of former CIA agents talking about what a terrible nightmare America faces under Trump and what a dire threat he is to our institutions and government.
When have you ever heard this level of rhetoric against any American president in your lifetime? It’s over the top.
For example, Vox interviewed Glenn Carle, a 23-year veteran of the CIA and a former deputy officer on the National Intelligence Council. When asked, “Are we witnessing a shadow war between President Trump and the intelligence community?”, Carle had this to say about Trump and America:
We are facing the gravest threat to our institutions and our government since 1861, since the country broke in half. This is a graver crisis than Watergate, which was about corruption, not the usurpation of our laws and our checks and balances. It’s graver than World War II, when Hitler never actually threatened our institutions or occupation of Washington.
In other words … their narrative is that we are facing another Civil War because of Trump.
