Trump plans overhaul of intelligence agencies

The review is being pushed by President Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and would be led by Stephen A. Feinberg, a billionaire private equity executive.

President Trump has grown increasingly frustrated with the way the US intelligence community has maintained its independence and is apparently considering engaging Stephen A. Feinberg, a private equity executive, to do a top-to-bottom overhaul.

According to the voices I hear in my head, Steve Bannon immediately put in a call to former KGB Lt. Colonel Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, to ask for pointers on how to use the US intelligence apparatus to assassinate his opponents, harass the media, intimidate nongovernmental organizations, and round up hooligans and rootless cosmopolitans.
