Donald Trump does not like spies, thinks they get in the way of his 'personal relationships'

Following the revelation that the CIA was forced to remove a top intelligence asset at the Kremlin, there are really only two people happy about the results. One is Vladimir Putin, who is now much more free to plan new weapons, stage invasions, and interfere in elections without some pesky spy leaking info back to Langley. The other is Donald Trump. Not only is Trump relieved that someone with direct knowledge of his connections to Putin is no longer in position, but CNN is reporting that Trump is “skeptical” of intelligence assets in general.

Skeptical isn’t the end of it. Trump has repeatedly expressed opposition to the use of foreign intelligence assets—even when those assets provide “crucial information about hostile countries.”

As a firm believer in snitches get stitches, Trump has long made it clear that he has no respect for anyone who gives up his private secrets, even in the face of little things like the law or national security. Just as Trump made clear to James Comey, loyalty to Trump personally is supposed top every other concern. So it really should not be surprising that when it comes to the idea of someone hanging around whose job it is to let the secrets escape the room, Trump is not a fan.

When meeting with Vladimir Putin, Trump has gone out of his way to avoid spies through the simplest means available—getting rid of everyone, even on some occasions the interpreter. The same is true of Trump’s meetings with Kim Jong Un and others. Trump doesn’t want anyone hearing what he says to foreign leaders, what they say to him, and what kind of deals they propose.

1. If he's nice to his buddies Kim and Putin and doesn't spy on them, they will reciprocate.

Of course I don't think Trump even know what that means, he used to just like to say it over and over again to make us think he did.

Yeah right. He's the mastermind and knows he can trust those guys.

2. He has a mobster mindset and sees himself as Capo

A spy is a rat as far as he's concerned. His dealings with hostile foreign others and their Capos should be kept secret.
Interestingly, the word for the top-level management of a mafia crime family is "administration"! I gag every time I hear a reference to that word since Trump and his "family" usurped the Oval Office thanks to his Russian associates.

3. Luciano and Lansky took the term when they fashioned organized crime into a more corporate structure

They wanted to stabilize the way the families and syndicates were organized and saw the corporate structure as an effective and efficient way to manage things.

4. Yep, and they have always wanted to control lawmakers and judges.

Now organized crime has infiltrated the White House.
Looks like the entire wish-list has been fulfilled.

7. Silly question

Would the unassigned spies now be easier to subpoena to a Congreasional hearing?
