UPDATE II (1/15): Spooks Are NOT Us; They’re Government

Julian Assange is one of us; working for the good of the people. Conversely, the “intelligence community” is an arm of The State, working to keep its enormous sphere of influence in tact (to say nothing of the perks and pensions of its members, going in perpetuity). There are good people among them, like Philip Haney. But they are often fired if they don’t get with the program.

UPDATE I (1/15): The “intelligence community” is trying to cow President-elect Donald Trump into submission. Keep fighting, Mr. Trump. “Trump slams outgoing CIA director Brennan after criticism over Russia threat.”

UPDATE II: What’s Fox News’ Bret Baier up to?

Far more reliable is Glenn Greenwald’s “The Deep State Goes to War With President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer.” Trump has taken on every aspect of a corrupt political system. It’s time for the Deep State, affectionately and deceptively called the Intelligence Community.
