Former deputy director of the CIA Philip Mudd had some harsh words for Donald Trump’s transition debacle, and he didn’t hold back.
“I’m watching a clown show,” Mudd told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday. He blasted Michael Flynn, the incoming National Security Advisor for spreading fake news and right-wing conspiracy theories.
Mudd said: “We transition now to a national security adviser in a political realm who argues that an opponent on the stump should be locked up in prison and who argues that a billion plus Muslims should be grouped together. And then we go on to argue that that individual’s son, who retweets fake news, should be given access to top secrets.”
“I’ve had it with this, Wolf,” he said. “I want to see a transition from a campaign to reality, and I don’t see it yet.”
