“Here’s my choice: I deal with the Comeys of the world, or I deal with Rudy,” Trump said, referring to former FBI Director James Comey. Trump explained that he has “a very bad taste” of the US intelligence community, because of the Russia investigation, so he turned to Giuliani.
So, the choice between using the existing system with appointed officials who get some sort of vetting, and someone who has no vetting or authority to do work on behalf of the US, he chooses the latter. Because the existing system is all Comeys. Y’know, career officials who try to follow procedure and laws.
If we take this a step further, why not have your own people with guns to do his military bidding? If Trump finds too much resistance in the military to his directions, who is to say he just won’t phone up Erik Prince and get the good ole boys to go somewhere and shoot up some “bad guys”? Sure, the military pretty much does anything that the President orders, but it’s only a matter of Trump deciding to do something unconscionable.
We already see hints of it with the school system. Don’t like what they are teaching? Not enough religion, or maybe they are trying to teach global warming, general history, or empathy? Why not just create some private schools that can teach Jesus rode on dinosaurs and the blacks were happy to be slaves, etc? Fund the private schools, defund the public ones, then when the public one’s quality goes down, blame it on “public” schools and privatize the whole system. “I deal with eggheads of the education system, or I deal with smart people like me, except maybe I’m a little bit smarter.”
Elected officials with accountability? Nah, that’s for weak countries. USA! USA! USA!
