Trump Continues Shake up of Intel and Justice Communities

President Trump and his administration have continued to shake up the intelligence and justice communities which have been highlighted by a controversial intelligence community appointment.

According to The Hill:

President Trump is challenging two institutions with crucial roles to play in the next election with a controversial appointment to the intelligence community and tweets directed at the Justice Department.

The intelligence appointment underscored Trump’s priority of loyalty over experience, according to critics, while the tweets complicated proceedings at the Justice Department while creating turmoil for Attorney General William Barr.

“You’re seeing a real strain on these institutions and the strain is coming in the form of really challenging the norms under which they’ve operated in the past,” said Lisa Monaco, who served as assistant attorney general for national security during the Obama administration.

Trump’s appointment of Richard Grenell last week to serve as acting director of national intelligence (DNI) came under fierce criticism from Democrats and other observers. Grenell has been serving as U.S. ambassador to Germany and regularly offers vociferous defenses of Trump and attacks of his critics in the media. But he has little intelligence experience.

The criticism of this move was intensified by the intervention of AG William Barr into the sentencing of Roger Stone.

Was it considered a “shakeup” when Obama replaced most of the DOJ attorneys with his hand picked communists, racists & muslims? Was it a “shakeup” when he purged the Pentagon of 25 & 30 year generals & replaced them with radical pro muslim, Christian despising leftists?? Did the leftist billionaire owned, leftist propaganda spewing media howl when Obama used executive privilege to keep vital evidence from congress to protect his bu tt buddy Holder over his Fast & Furious scandal, of course not.

Obama WEAPONIZED our federal agencies, funded Louis Farrakhan’s organization to go into prisons & promote ISLAM while attacking Christianity & purging it from the public square. He LIED, SPIED & COLLUDED with RUSSIA, the Ukraine, Italy, Australia & England to try & take down Trump the candidate & then president. So please give the Trump is shaking up the govt. rhetoric a rest. Not everyone is a mentally ill, brain dead leftist.

And an attempt at impeachment was a demonstration of intelligence experience?
