CNN counter terrorism analyst and former CIA agent Phil Mudd made a stunning prediction live on air that “the government’s gonna kill” the president of the United States.
“Let me give you one bottom line – as a former government official, the government’s gonna kill this guy,” Mudd said on Thursday.
“He defends Vladimir Putin, there are State Department and CIA officers coming home and at Langley and in Foggy Bottom CIA are saying, this is how you defend us?’” he asked.
Host Jake Tapper jumped in, “Obviously when you’re talking about killing you’re using that as a metaphor.”
“Well, obviously yeah,” Mudd responded, before effectively doubling down on his rhetoric.
“People talk about the deep state, when you disrespect government officials who’ve done 20 or 30 years, they’re gonna say ‘really – Vladimir Putin sends officers home and you support him before you support us?’”
In the legal world, that’s called motive.
