WH Mulling Private Network to Counter the Deep State

President Donald Trump and his CIA director are mulling a pitch to create a private global spy network, accountable only to them, in order to counter the activities of "Deep State" enemies, The Intercept reported.

The proposal's authors — former Blackwater founder Erik Prince, Iran-Contra provocateur Oliver North, and former CIA operative John Maguire, who also served on Trump's transition team, The Intercept reports.

The report comes on the heels of a separate but similar Buzzfeed report that Trump and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are considering private spies to run counterintelligence and covert and propaganda efforts around the world.

Further, The Intercept reported that some involved with the proposal have even reached out to major Trump donors to seek financing for the private operations.

"Pompeo can't trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him," a former senior intelligence official told The Intercept. "It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books. The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly."

Very suspicious topic for conversation in the MSM
My guess is this story was planted intentionally to let us know that the BOSSES already run the big spy agencies and have done so for decades. MI5, MI6, CIA, Mossad are all run by the international banking families. These families leave nothing to chance. They are the secret financiers of the campaigns and therefore control all of the politicians. POTUS is selected not elected. The intelligence agencies are running the government and have done so since November 22, 1963.
