Sarah Huckabee Sanders Got Called Out For Trying To Lie For Trump During Press Briefing

Our government is sounding more and more like a conspiracy group than of, you know, a government for a world superpower. Recent reports indicate that President Trump is considering building a “global, private spy network.” I can’t make this stuff up.

Erik Prince, founder of controversial military contracting firm Blackwater, lobbied to give the CIA an additional, private network of intelligence contractors. Thankfully, Prince is getting nowhere.

“The White House does not and would not support such a proposal,” National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton said to CNN. “I can find no evidence that this ever came to the attention of anyone at the NSC or (White House) at all.”

As yet another man you didn’t know you needed to know about until now, Prince’s agency Blackwater lost a $1 billion contract with the United States government to protect American diplomats in 2009, and was questioned by House members last month regarding his association with the head of a Russian investment fund, which looked like a move to establish a back channel through which the Russian government and American lawmakers could communicate. Obviously, he told the House team that the meeting was not to create this back channel network and that he does not have a strong connection to the Trump administration, admitting he donated to the campaign but only met the President once. However, CNN previously reported that Prince had met with Trump’s national security team during the transition and boasted about the experience.

Prince can insist he does not have close ties to the Trump family all he wants, but actions speak louder than words. Why would he present a “global, private spy network” to the government, why go through all of that planning, if he didn’t believe he had a truly interested party? Exactly. Trump is probably very interested in this proposition. Very. Interested. Hopefully, no one will let him go through with this. Hopefully.
