James Henry — Schumer Says Trump “Dumb” to Cross Intelligence Community — Payback Likely

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) let slip a terrifying reality when it comes to the power of our nation’s president over “executive branch” agencies like the CIA. In an interview Tuesday with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Schumer said President-elect Donald Trump is “being really dumb” by taking on the intelligence community because if he does “they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
Just let that soak in for a minute.
One of the most powerful senators just admitted that it is “stupid” for a president to oppose the intelligence community, which he is in charge of, because it will “[get] back at you.”
Said about the guy who prides himself about getting even

This is going to be quite a show. The word is out that DJT is going to "restructure" US intelligence, which means making big changes in personnel and operations, which is a reason he appointed Lt Gen. Mike Flynn as national security adviser.

The great institutions of state and all the power interests that stand behind them versus Trump?

I know who my money is on, and it's not the guy with the short fingers. It'll be interesting to see how Trump's will back down. He'll probably just change the subject. He's already changed his tune on so many things. A few more won't be noticed. Who's going to notice the backtracking when his hands are full trying to explain how his economic policies are not working for the people who elected him?

Trump got the title, but he could've had class, he could've been somebody!

These are just the Obama political appointees at these agencies saying all of this shit... they will be gone in less than 3 weeks then lets see what the career people at these agencies have to say... which will probably be nothing as is proper...
