Delving deeper into the as-yet not fully confirmed report by The Intercept that Blackwater founder Erik Prince is working to develop a private intelligence service that would answer only to President Donald Trump and CIA Director Mike Pompeo, there’s a new shocking claim.
According to the report, not only is the Deep State preventing the president from receiving the intelligence he needs to fully protect the country, members of his own national security team are working to undermine his presidency, as well. The private security team is to be privately funded in the short term until a CIA contract can be acquired.
The donors to that project, who served as the primary sources for The Intercept’s report, said former CIA officer John Maguire is also heavily involved in the project. And, according to those sources, he has been sharing some rather shocking details with the donors.
The report states:
“[Maguire] said there were people inside the CIA who joined in the previous eight years [under Obama] and inside the government, and they were failing to give the president the intelligence he needed,” said a person who was pitched by Maguire and other Amyntor personnel. To support his claim, Maguire told at least two people that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, in coordination with a top official at the National Security Agency, authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. Adding to these unsubstantiated claims, Maguire told the potential donors he also had evidence McMaster used a burner phone to send information gathered through the surveillance to a facility in Cyprus owned by George Soros.
The report also concluded Maguire is absolutely certain the Deep State wants the president out of office “within a year,” and that the former spook is working with Prince to protect the Trump presidency.
