Intelligence analyst Jonathan D. Pollard, who led the CIA’s Counterintelligence Center from 2001-2008, spoke with Breitbart News exclusively about his years as a CIA analyst, how the intelligence community has evolved since the 9/11 attacks, and the impact of the Iran nuclear deal.
Pollards views on Iran and the current political climate are very clear, and he shares the opinion of many who feel that the current president is a weak leader, who has not shown the ability to deal with threats and threats to the country.
Pollies view of Trump, who is the first sitting president in decades to be impeached, is one of the most dangerous trends of the current administration.
Polls views on Trump are that of an authoritarian, and that his policies are unworkable and will likely lead to a permanent breakdown of the American political system.
Polling shows that most Americans believe Trump is a bad leader.
Poll’s views on the current state of the country and the potential for a political system collapse in the near future are clear and very disturbing.
