Glenn Greenwald — The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer


I wonder if these people fully comprehend that Donald Trump will be their boss for the next four years and in any event, whether they stay or nor, one of Donald Trump's foundational principle is getting even. (Actually, it appears that some people do realize it and keeping their mouths shut.)

"Trump will be their boss for the next four years "

No he won't they have to resign when he is sworn in as do all political appointees unless the new admin invites them to stay...

The political appointees will have to resign but there are likely a lot of analysts that are G-whatevers that will be left behind as a fifth column. This is standard political practice to hamstring the incoming president when of the opposite party or persuasion and to assist the incoming president when of the same party or persuasion.

Trump will have to deal with as Putin has also had to do in Russia with the leftover Western neoliberals from the Yeltsin era.

My bet is that Trump is toast if he doesn't flip on Russia and the CIA. 90 days, max. Probably much less.

Pence split with Trump on the supposed Russian hacking. His dog bone is the presidency.

They have nothing to do with all of this....

That's not what I hear.

According to Pat Lang, who was in the "business" these top G-whatevers are equivalent to flag officers in the military.

They cannot be removed other than for cause, or asked to retire for political reasons.
