Trump dismisses ex-CIA chief as ‘Obama-Clinton pawn’

Greg Nash

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday hit back at a former CIA leader who called him an “unwitting agent of Russia,” labeling him a pawn for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and President Obama. 

{mosads}”Clinton’s home email server that she lied to the America people about was a profound national security risk, and it should come as no surprise that her campaign would put out another Obama-Clinton pawn (who is not independent) to try to change the subject in a week when Clinton’s role in putting Iran on the path to nuclear weapons and this Administration being called out for sending $400 million in cash to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism is on every front page in the country,” Trump said in a statement to NBC.

“Hillary Clinton has bad judgment and is unfit to serve as President.” 

In a New York Times op-ed, Michael Morell, who worked under Presidents George W. Bush and Obama, called Trump a threat to national security. 

Morell said he was not registered with either political party and that he had voted for both Republicans and Democrats. He said he was ending his silence over his political preferences because he viewed Trump as a threat to national security.

“My training as an intelligence officer taught me to call it as I see it. This is what I did for the C.I.A. This is what I am doing now. Our nation will be much safer with Hillary Clinton as president,” Morell wrote in a New York Times op-ed.
