Ricky Twisdale — Donald Trump Will Ruthlessly Decimate the CIA for Turning on Him

I think is this right.

Most of the people in the CIA involved realize this. Trump's CIA chief designate Mike Pompeo will be the hatchet man. Even before this incident, speculation has been that these people would leave on their own as soon as they could after DJT is inaugurated to take employment in the private sector. Good riddance. The US doesn't need a politicized intelligence service.

Not so sure about that, Tom. Here's Melvin Goodman on Pompeo:

He isn't going to get rid of everyone, just the "disloyal."

DJT is n't looking for a kinder and gentler CIA, just a more loyal one.

There will be a problem with the Pentagon over torture though. Mattis will run that for DJT.

Can't see him doing his "get even" routine with the CIA. They have far too much shit on him!

And anyway, the CIA's black operations are what make them useful. DoD doesn't do a fraction of the black ops the CIA (the president's private paramilitary assassination and destabilisation agency) does, or is allowed to get away with.

I suppose that in the end they'll both come to an agreement. Deals are what Trump is said to be good at!
