Trying to prevent a lawful President from taking office, based on fabricated lies may work in.....Chile or Iran, but not in the USA.
This is a serious offense, with serious consequences for the CIA.
After the Church Committee reports of 1975, 800 CIA officers were removed from their post by the Carter administration in 1977.
The Church Committee was the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Idaho Senator Frank Church (D-ID) in 1975. A precursor to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the committee investigated intelligence gathering for illegality by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after certain activities had been revealed by the Watergate affair....wikipedia.
the election of Jimmy Carter in 1976, his campaign promise to clean the “cowboy” elements out of the Central Intelligence Agency and his “human rights” policies alarmed the faction of the CIA loyal to George Bush. Bush was CIA director under Richard Nixon. Finally, the firing of CIA Director George Bush by Carter, and the subsequent “Halloween Massacre” in which Carter fired over 800 CIA covert operatives in 1977, angered the “cowboys” beyond all measure. That was Carter’s October surprise, 800 firings on Halloween 1977........Global Research.
Just like Lyndon Johnson, Carter made the mistake of having on the one hand make sincere election promises of fix and focus on America, but at the same time become embroiled and mesmerized by the 'experts' and insiders on foreign policy and military adventures.
But who could blame Carter, who himself was a former naval Intelligence man, and beyond the congenial smile and peanut farmer persona from the South, he was very much a cloak and dagger man.
However, the self-professed advocate for human rights demonstrated quite the penchant for bloodshed. Carter proved remarkably generous at providing financial, military, diplomatic and ideological support for fascist dictatorships that tortured and killed millions of members of their domestic populations in an effort to crush popular movements for social justice. Some of the regimes he backed carried out mass slaughter that amounted to genocide.....Counterpunch.
Will President Trump be equally mesmerized and embroiled in foreign mis-adventure, which ultimately led to the down fall of the Carter administration into a sorry one term mess, with the aid of the CIA?
