Do the Democrats want to leave, as the final "legacy" of Obama, a total distrust of US Intelligence agencies? That's where they are headed. Check out this Breitbart poll, which shows only 29% of US citizens believe this fake news story. Since 52% of Democrats believe the fake news, that means that just about NOBODY but Democrats believe it.
This means two things: first, since the lead US Intelligence official, General James Clapper, head of Obama's D.N.I., swore to Congress today that the hacking happened, President-elect Trump has a LOT of damage to repair in the US Intelligence "Alphabet Soup".
How should Mr. Trump repair that damage? Try these ideas, Mr. Trump:
- Dump Clapper, and hard. I would ask that the Congress look into indicting him for Contempt of Congress for lying on no less than three separate occasions to the House.
- Appoint as Clapper's replacement a leader of impeccable integrity, not necessarily a spook and especially not necessarily a politician.
- Establish a new standard of de-politicizing US Intelligence.
Do these things, Mr. Trump, and you MIGHT repair the damage that Clapper has done at the urging of the Left.
