The CIA is fighting for its methods of operations and its life. They are trying to overturn the November election by getting Electoral College members to not vote for Trump.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who recently visited Trump at Trump Tower, is in sync with Trump's view on CIA regime change. Over the weekend, she denounced the US policy of regime change and support for radical Islamic terror in Syria, accusing the CIA of direct material support to the terrorists.
Unfortunately, Gabbard, an Iraq war veteran, and Trump want to fight in the Middle East using other methods.They want to fight based on the military methods advanced by retired Lt. General Michael Flynn and other military, rather than the complex CIA methods of financing and supporting various radical nutjobs in the region. .
This is not necessarily a positive from a libertarian perspective. The MI crowd is a bunch of nutjobs, just a different bunch than the CIA.
But make no mistake, this is a major league Deep State battle: The CIA vs. Military Intelligence.
