Feinberg?

We’re staking the fight against the Deep State on this guy?

I’m not entirely sure what to make of this. Trump is allegedly bringing his friend, billionaire Stephen Feinberg, on board to “evaluate” the intelligence agencies. [My apologies for linking to the New York Slimes.] Some red flags are popping up.

Feinberg is a co-founder of Cerberus Capital, which includes among its CEO’s former vice president Dan Quayle. Dan Quayle is a country club Republican insider, no doubt brought in to exercise his Washington connections. Cerberus is heavily invested in two gun manufacturers and a defense firm, and has been awarded numerous government contracts in the past. This guy is a Swamp Thing. He has too many ties to D.C. insiders for me to fully trust him.

If he is being groomed to take over a high-ranking position within the IC, he’s got enough baggage that the embedded personnel can probably break him, or force him to compromise. Trump does need to have someone investigate these fuckers, but I don’t think Feinberg is that someone.
