Exactly. A president with a CIA-like spy agency that answers directly to him. Trump could have taught Nixon a thing or two. Good thing this is dead before it starts.


Saw this the other day. Erik Prince is Betsy DeVos' brother. Also was his outfit was implicated in scandals involving iraq, and it is alleged he is the one that st up the meeteing between kushner and the russians in the seychelles \\

 

And yes, Nixon did want a US police force. But then he had J edgar Smiley Happy

 

AT least the NSA, CIA, and FBI give lip service to the constitution when they poke their nose in. As a private organization they will have no accountability except to Trump, and his views on constitutionality.


Yes they are the same family and very rich, and gave a lot of money to Trump. What you say about him is true. In Iraq he had Black Water (name of his Company) and did the things you say. He did attend the meeting you speak of by what he told Congress so it is not alleged. He did it. He also was an adviser to Trump and drafted a plan for our current war in AFG. He wanted to privatize it. His new Company would raise the army to fight there, and bill the US for cost plus his profit. When the Defence Sec. heard about it he killed it. Want to bet Trump would have used it otherwise.

Another example of trumps fascist administration.....Huckaby Sanders say's she's heard nothing of it and another official said the idea was pitched to the administration....  Didn't they say something about "Big Government"?  Could there be anything more Big Brotherish?

 

“This is an Orwellian scenario of government action that is not accountable to either the law or the voters. It contradicts the very principle of limited, popular government that defines our nation,”  - Ro Khanna, D-Calif.

 

A White House official later told New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman that the proposal was indeed pitched to the Trump administration, but there is no sign the president himself was briefed. A White House official also confirmed to CNN that the plan was pitched, adding that “this idea is going nowhere.”  https://theintercept.com/2017/12/05/white-house-erik-prince-private-spies-deep-state/

Trump considers private, global spy force to combat ‘deep state’

By Teri Webster

 

President Donald Trump is considering plans to build a worldwide network of private spies to counter “deep state” enemies in the intelligence community that he says are working to undermine his presidency, The Intercept reports.

 

Generally, the term ‘deep state’ refers to people or organizations that exercise power over an elected leader from behind the scenes. To that definition, The Nation adds: “The problem with the phrase ‘deep state’ is that it is used to suggest that dishonorable individuals are subverting the virtuous state for their private ambitions.”

 

How is this network being developed?

Blackwater founder Erik Prince and retired CIA officer and intelligence contractor John Maguire are part of a team developing plans for the private spy network, according to The Intercept. Oliver North, a key player in the Iran-Contra scandal, is also reportedly working on the plan.

 

Prince and Maguire deny working together, even though “current and former U.S. officials and Trump donors” say they are, according to the news outlet. The Intercept goes on to say that details are rarely forthcoming in the world of “CIA contracting and clandestine operations.” They are “murky by design and change depending on which players are speaking.”

Would the network circumvent official intelligence agencies?

If approved, CIA Director Mike Pompeo would gain a “spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies.” according to The Intercept. An unnamed former intelligence official told The Interceptthat proposals are being drawn up because Pompeo cannot trust the “CIA bureaucracy.”

“It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,” said the official, who reportedly has firsthand knowledge of the plans “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”

That means intelligence data would not be shared with others at the CIA, or the rest of the U.S. intelligence agencies.

 

Under the plan, an “army of spies” would operate worldwide in various countries, including North Korea and Iran, which are currently “denied areas” for U.S. intelligence.

 

According to “two former senior intelligence officials,” Pompeo likes the plan and wants the White House to adopt it, The Intercept reported.

What else has Trump said about the deep state?

Trump takes issue with the so-called deep state’s refusal to thoroughly investigate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, The Hill reported. In her role under the Obama administration, Clinton used personal email addresses rather than government email, while connected to a privately owned server. At issue is why she did this and whether government secrets were compromised. Clinton has said she did it only for convenience.

 

Questions about the emails are ongoing, Newsweek reported.
