There have been more than a few executive branch executors throughout the history of presidential politics who found themselves clashing with the intelligence community.
As a matter of fact, there is a quote that is frequently misrepresented as one of John F. Kenney's that suggests the possibility of a secret war between the intelligence agencies and the White House.
Although JFK may never have said, “splinter the C.I.A. in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds," President Donald Trump has actually blamed the FBI for the election being rigged against him.
President Donald Trump engaged in what could best be described as a lengthy airing of grievances on Sunday morning, venting to sycophantic Fox News host Maria Bartiromo during his first post-election television interview while baselessly suggesting his own FBI and Department of Justice were “involved” with a “rigged” election against him.
“This is total fraud, and how the FBI and Department of Justice, I don’t know, maybe they’ve involved but how people are allowed to get away with this stuff is unbelievable,” he shouted. “This election was rigged. This election was a total fraud!”
The Fox host also wanted to know where the FBI and DOJ were in terms of investigating the president’s “serious charges” about Dominion, prompting the president to grouse that they are “missing in action” while suggesting they are part of the conspiracy against him.
“So you’re asking a question. These people have been there a long time and I know FBI and the FBI is great at the levels that we talked about, but it’s inconceivable,” he seethed. “You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at. Where are they? I’ve not seen anything.”
The President’s legal team has had a hard time holding up their voter fraud claims in court and it doesn’t seem as though these claims of FBI interference will stick either.
