The CIA is an internal threat to the rule of law and to the government that it supposedly serves. Senator Schumer acknowledges the CIA’s unbridled power, its subversive power, its power to undermine even a president, especially one that wishes to control or alter the organization.
Every American who looks at the CIA objectively or in a balanced way and judges it by any number of criteria, such as moral, legal and pragmatic, should reach the conclusion that the CIA should be abolished. JFK wanted to break it into a million pieces.
Far too much abuse of federal power has occurred at the level of the CIA and NSA. They have no business receiving tax payer dollars for conducting unconstitutional meta data collection on US citizens and being involved in torture.
