 Trump quietly working to replace director of national intelligence
By Bill Gertz -
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

President Trump is continuing to plan to replace his senior intelligence adviser, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and has considered at least one candidate, according to people close to the White House.

Fred Fleitz, an intelligence veteran who until recently was chief of staff to National Security Adviser John R. Bolton, is being considered for the DNI post by Mr. Trump.

Mr. Fleitz is a no-nonsense advocate of intelligence reform with a wealth of experience, having worked as an analyst for the CIA, professional staff member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and as a senior State Department nonproliferation specialist during the George W. Bush administration.

Recent reports that Mr. Fleitz, a conservative advocate of U.S. intelligence reform, is in the running for DNI sent shock waves through the intelligence bureaucracy.

As outlined in a recent journal essay by former CIA officer John Gentry, U.S. intelligence agencies have been politicized to the liberal left in recent years, especially during the Obama administration. Under President Obama, a group of liberal intelligence leaders left their mark on the agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community, including outspoken anti-Trump partisans such as former DNI James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan (who admitted he once voted for the pro-Moscow Communist Party USA presidential candidate), and FBI Director James B. Comey, who was fired by Mr. Trump for mishandling bureau investigations.

Mr. Trump is still upset with Mr. Coats over his Senate testimony in February when, under questioning from Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, he appeared to undercut sensitive negotiations with North Korea on its nuclear program at the time.

Mr. Coats testified that U.S. intelligence agencies assessed North Korea will not give up its nuclear weapons through talks with the United States.

The Coats appointment is quintessential Trump.
He was a political hack from the mid-west who
knew and did absolutely nothing; an utter zero.
As usual, Trump never noticed !!!

Then simple logic would require that you support his replacement.

Is this about what is best for America or what is best for Trump.  Another grudge firing?  Oh yeah he hires only the best and then he fires them.

....like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for.....

Isn't it way past time all came to terms w/a basic reality???
Trumpet has NO ability to judge character; past, present or future
As his wise Scottish Mother observed; he is incorrigible and
will not learn from mistakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After Coats he'll find another Bozo; perhaps Scaramucci
will reappear as anything is possible w/Trumpet!
