Intelligence expert Malcolm Nance exposed a frightening dimension of Donald Trump’s destructive influence on our country by calling out the unprecedented way he has infected our government with Soviet-style political officers whose main function is to police loyalty to Donald Trump.
On MSNBC’s “AMJoy,” Nance identified the problem, explaining that since taking office, Trump has been “Putting, literally, political commissars into the administration.”
“This has never occurred in the history of the United States, where there were people there to test your ideological purity to Donald Trump, not to the Constitution, not to the defense of this nation.”
Nance then explained the way a “True patriot” would respond to the pressure that Trump’s thought police are bringing to bear in federal agencies:
The Constitution is under attack, American democracy is under attack. If I was in one of these Administrations and somebody comes into my office and says ‘Hey you know we’re going to have to talk about your attitude towards things politically,’ I’d dime that person out.
 You swear an oath, I swore an oath, he swore an oath, we protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
But there have been signs of hope all along, as well.
The prospect of a blue wave in 11 months means that Americans may finally get the chance to undo some of the damage that Trump has done, and to bring back the democracy he is actively trying to upend.Join The Conversation
