(National Sentinel) Targeted: In what many are calling a chilling warning, a former high-level CIA agent said Tuesday that “Deep State” operatives are so fearful that President Donald J. Trump’s agenda will succeed they want him “taken out.”
Kevin Shipp was an agency terrorism expert assigned as a protective agent for the director of Central Intelligence. According to his biography, he was also a counterintelligence investigator, team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations, lead instructor for members of allied governments, internal staff security investigator and a polygraph examiner tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration.
He is also the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations.
In an interview with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com, he said that Deep State figures were “terrified” of Trump.
“They are terrified, they are terrified right now. They did not expect Trump to do what he is doing now,” he said.
“The reason they tried to get him even before he was elected is they knew he was uncontrollable, and they knew if he got in there, they would not be able to manipulate him, and that is exactly what’s happening,” Shipp added.
He said he differentiates between the “Deep State and shadow government.”
“There are some people, and there is no doubt about it, that are running scared right now,” he continued.
“Donald Trump is questioning the Deep State and the shadow government. He’s rocking that place left and right. The news media is terrified of that,” he said.
“Their editors are telling them to attack him just like they are attacking him from the inside. It’s just dirty pool because they want him taken out,” he added.
This isn’t the first time it’s been mentioned that the Deep State wants to ‘take out’ the president.
Last summer pastor Rodney Howard-Browne said a top GOP lawmaker said the same thing, adding, “There’s nothing we can do to stop it.”
It’s possible that Trump and his senior staff are aware of such efforts. The Intercept reported last month the White House was considering ‘private spies’ of its own, to counter Deep State operatives.
The plan, reportedly, was developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a former Marine lieutenant colonel caught up in the 1980s-era Iran-Contra scandal.
“The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering ‘deep state’ enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency,” The Intercept reported.
