  1. …"Careers"
    From 9/11/2001 to Iraqi WMDs to Benghazi to Russia Collusion and that's just the last 20 years or so.
    Intelligence failure after intelligence failure after intelligence failure… coup after coup after coup.. and now weaponized against the American People.
    I am all for defunding the CIA.

  2. Imagine how self centered you have to be to think the customer (Trump and the voters) are wrong and that it’s going to “ruin your career” lmao no dude you ruined your own career and there’s a reason why the POTUS and his voters didn’t trust you. That’s your own fault. Stop blaming others.

  3. Considering that John Ratcliffe, Rick Grenell and Kash Patel all align with Trump and his views, it makes you wonder what the hell is wrong with those running the FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc…JFK had the right idea.

  4. My summary from reading all of the comments on this topic justify my belief that the majority of Trump fans are brainwashed morons. He tried to overturn a free and fair election. His Attorney General told him that his claims were bullshit and his own daughter told him that his claims were bullshit. He nearly staged a coup. That was the biggest threat to America since the country was founded. If you cannot see less then you are an absolute moron just like Trump and his cronies

  5. The CIA and the FBI have been led by republicans for the last 40 years. Time to let the Democrats take control of those agencies. Not even one fbi director that has ever been democrat, always republicans.

  6. He would rather listen to Russia. Of course he didn’t listen to them, they said what he didn’t want to hear: the truth…even the truth about him. When the book is written on this chapter of American history, trump & his cult will be viewed in the same vein as hitler & the TR. Really any conman who leads ignorant, blind followers down a path of destruction. That’s where we are. The comments prove this.

  7. Americans refuse to believe that the CIA is spying on its own domestic citizens because its a terrifying truth and it feels good to remain ignorant.

    They are completely fine, however, with intelligence agencies spying on OTHER countries and citizens.
