According to French daily Le Parisien, the US intelligence community would worry about Republican candidate Donald Trump and the words he says « without filter » and which could allegedly damage US national security. On Cyceon’s side, this information came as a surprise given that Hillary Clinton has just avoided a federal indictment for endangering US national security because she sent classified materials from her private server while she was Secretary of State.
Many within the US intelligence community pointed out the clemency Clinton allegedly benefited from compared with the fate of former general and CIA Director David Petraeus, who was sentenced in court and fired from office for less serious offenses. Nevertheless, Cyceon’s data says quite the opposite and rather shows that Donald Trump enjoys large support within the US intelligence community; not necessarily for his often excessive stances but for his independence vis-à-vis foreign interests – unlike the Clinton Foundation, as it is often mentioned – and special interest groups – lobbies.
One year ago, former CIA operatives explained why they saw Donald Trump not only win the primary of the Republican Party (GOP) but also have a slim but real chance of becoming the next POTUS. One of them, a Delegate who participated in the Republican convention in Cleveland, will answer Cyceon’s questions within the next 24 hours, stay in touch by following Cyceon on Twitter or Facebook.
