Even before he took office as President, Donald Trump launched full scale assaults against the CIA and FBI. His anger was directed at what he called the phony news about Russian interference in the 2016 election, which has long been proven to be real beyond the shadow of any doubt, and thanks to the tireless work of agents in these American intelligence agencies. However, the damage has been done, and the President continues his verbal assault. Agents are demoralized by what they perceive as a lack of confidence and a severe ack of leadership at many levels. How much damage remains? Why does the President name leaders that are unqualified for the job? And how have the Russians and Vladimir Putin benefited? Emmy Award winning journalist Ed Berliner is joined by veteran and former CIA Agent turned author and consultant Sam Faddis, as they tackle the hard questions and disagree on more than a few points. It’s another riveting conversation on the fastest growing interview show in podcasting, “The Man in the Arena”.
