Millions of Americans turned on Hillary Clinton on Sunday after video of her collapsing as she left the 9/11 memorial went viral. Now James Woolsey, who was President Bill Clinton’s director of the CIA from 1993 to 1995, has had enough of her as well.
The Political Insider reported that though Woolsey is a lifelong Democrat, he has just signed on to officially advise Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign. He has publicly stated that he can’t support Hillary due to her use of a private email server as secretary of State.
“She demonstrated a complete lack of understanding and an inability to lead the agency she headed in such a way as to maintain its mission and security,” Woolsey said in a statement.
“Based on the emails thus far released we know that Secretary Clinton also lacks the ability to lead her senior managers while complying with and maintaining the basic protocols designed to protect our government’s sensitive and classified information,” he continued. “Mr. Trump understands the magnitude of the threats we face and is holding his cards close to the vest.”
He went on to praise Trump for his views on the military, as he believes he will lead our armed forces in the right direction: “articipate with others I respect in advising GOP candidate Donald J. Trump on the urgent need to reinvest in and modernize our military in order to confront the challenges of the 21st century,”I have been a ‘Scoop Jackson,’ ‘Joe Lieberman’ Democrat all of my adult life, but I am pleased to be asked to participate with others I respect in advising GOP candidate Donald J. Trump on the urgent need to reinvest in and modernize our military in order to confront the challenges of the 21st century.”
Welcome to team Trump, James Woolsey!
