THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state” enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency.

Privatizing spying, isn't it bad enough we already

but then again, most of the shit they do is illegal.

This is another example of why we need to challenge this entire political system including the office of the presidency itself.

@Big Al I highly doubt that their is anyone who thought trumpkopf
wouldn't try to profit from the presidency.

It's truly open season on the US govt, but then he's only doing
what the clintons have been doing for 25 years, but better. I
wonder if Bill is in the background giving him advice?

It's definitely worth an essay, good luck with it.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been busy ridding the department of seasoned diplomats and geographical specialists to spur on the “privatization” of American foreign policy for the benefit of the Trumps, Kushners, Mercers, Koch brothers, and all the other billionaires who support reducing government control of anything to nil. The State Department is being turned into a virtual public relations arm for the Trump Organization, Inc. and its business partners and affiliates, worldwide.
