President elect Grabber not even swore in yet and people are leaving his so called transition team.

If you read between the lines, Woosley is distancing himself from Mr. Grabber due to not sharing the hacking information with someone that is an expert in the intelligence field who worked under 4 presidents.

Woosley decided that it was best for him to keep the integrity of his name and reputation by leaving the Trump team. Good for Woosley, but bad for America as we have a Putin muppet as president.

I appreciate your post.

Reality is so refreshing.

I also agree with you.

Face it, Muppet Trump hasn't even started yet and his administration is shaping up to be a dumpster fire.

No, that is you reading between the lines!

If I were reading between the lines, this guy is getting out before he has to explain all of the huge gaffes or straight out lies that he fed the last four presidents.

From CNN directly (since WaPo "quotes" CNN)...
www.cnn.com...


Woolsey insisted to Burnett Thursday that he was not leaving because he was frustrated with Trump's public dismissal of US intelligence findings. He said he had actually not advised Trump in some time and wanted to set the record straight on who he was and what he did.



He said he still supported Trump and wished the incoming commander in chief well, but that he was not a part of his team anymore. He said there was no "particular point" that he had stopped advising Trump, but added he had only seen the President-elect in person a few times and talked on the phone "a little bit."
"I didn't want to be claiming that I'm something I'm not," Woolsey said.


It appears he "joined" the Trump team just to make it clear he was opposed to Hillary Clinton, using his bit of clout for having served as her husband's CIA director...

This would seem to be a *meh* story at best.

He actually said he wasn't on Trump's transition team, he didn't want to be considered part of it because it would be a lie.

He didn't quit anything, Trump wasn't using him anymore.

On the ropes with Trump's "transition team", not with Trump.

Putin probably has better interests for USA than the Clinton/Obama/Soros agenda... that is, if the hacking was real to begin with. Which, with zero proof, it was not. False flag until we see evidence.

Interesting that you left out the part of the article where the Trump team is leaving him out of intelligence briefings.

Comrade, interested in moving to Russia? Sure sounds like you are a Putin/Trump apologist.

Do me a favor and memorize this song. It will be your theme song soon.

This article clearly states that Woolsey was excluded from the transition process recently and was not working as an advisor.
So, Trump and the rest of the team had already pretty much written him out of the decision making.

Woolsey did not agree with Trump's plans to restructure the intelligence agencies.
Our intelligence agencies need to be restructured. They have way too much power and anonymity.
It is not shocking that Woolsey does not agree, as he was part of the problem.

So it is no surprise that Woolsey is making it official that he is no longer part of the team.

So now Woosley is part of the problem? He wasn't a part of the problem when Trump used his name to legitimize his transition team was he?

There is an ongoing "soft" coup d'état against Trump. Here the breakdown of the plan:

1- Build a case for election rigged by an ennemy state. DONE

2- Represent the President Elect as being an inept, unintelligent pawn. ONGOING

3- Turn the nominees and allies of the PE against him. ONGOING

4- Start the "legal" process to block PE "illegitimate" transition to power. TODO, NEXT WEEK

5- Keep existing POTUS as provisional gov. TODO

6- Start a new round of election between HRC and a new "safer" lame duck adversary. TODO

I know, very crazy but it is the only logical explanation for what is ongoing. It will be confirmed if next week, step 4 come to reality, at first in the MSM.

Albeit better than everybody getting 'vetted' and the REAL
train wreck to go with a few cars of leaky warheads.
I saw "The Peacemaker" and don't want to draw any parallels:
but sometimes early attrition may be in our best interests.
C.i.P. If Gen. Mattis was even rotated for enough years, there's
a good chance the approval process could be otherwise.

EDIT: and lest I forget to thank you S.A, this is a good grab/OP.
Thank you for the heads-up, I thought J.W. was staying. whew.
