I don't think NSA is about to assassinate anyone, not their style. CIA, on the otherhand...well, they're capable of just about anything.
Assassination is what they did back in the 1960s.
That's the most effective method they had back then.
Today, they read all your private emails, and publish them if you piss them off.

Let's put that quote in print:
“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he is being really dumb to do this.”
Is that a call for assassination? Not necessarily, but it doesn't exclude it either.
Personally, I did not see it as a threat of assassination. Rather, my first thought was that it was a threat he would be framed or exposed for something.
Regardless, it's a spooky statement to utter and by implication seem to agree with.
