James R. Clapper Jr., the former director of National Intelligence and Defense Intelligence Agency, warned that the nation’s institution is being undermined by none other than President Donald Trump himself.
“our institutions are under assault internally.”
This admission comes after the sacking of FBI Director James B. Comey. Clapper is convinced that outside forces are in fact reasonable for weakening the U.S. Government. Well, with Trump there, I’m not sure any effort is needed to weaken it at all when it’s already weak to start with.
“I think the Founding Fathers, in their genius, created a system of three coequal branches of government and a built-in system of checks and balances. And I feel as though it’s under assault and eroding.”
With outside forces weakening our government and Trump on the inside meeting the outside forces in half, I don’t know how long it will take until we actually crumble down and erode. Not long, I reckon.
