Ex-CIA senior officer claimed Trumpification of the agency.
CIA was founded in 1947 under President Harry Truman. The agency has been dealing with foreign intelligence since then and has served under 13 different presidents. In an article that was published on February 10th for Just Security, Douglas London, who is a retired CIA senior operations officer, shared his views about the state of the agency under Trump. He said in the last few years the CIA has been acting in Trump’s interest more than foreign intelligence interests of the United States.
He alleged that when Pompeo was in charge of the CIA, anything that could have shown Trump weak had to be avoided. He said Pompeo kept Trump’s interest above the nation’s. He said that those who have worked with the current head Gina Haspel over the years had little expectations that she will push back against the president.
