One of the big problems with mercenaries is that they have no loyalty to anything other than the biggest paycheck. I can't imagine how that works in the realm of intelligence gathering other than badly.
Not all of them.
Just some of them. Like in Germany where only a handful of people were Nazis and the rest were just blind, cowardly followers.
And clearly fascists despite calling themselves something else.
Maybe he can call them "Republican Guard" where members must have oaths "Pledging loyalty to him alone" and "Obedience unto death".
A Secret State Police should have a fancy name.
In order to protect The Homeland® and purge the ranks of unloyal bureaucrats you need to have fancy names.
Too bad Trump is too fat to fit into a uniform. Members of the party could award him medals and he can hang it on his uniform.
As for the article
Washington (CNN)The founder of the controversial military contracting firm Blackwater, Erik Prince, and his allies lobbied contacts inside the administration to provide the CIA with a private network of intelligence contractors, according to a US official with knowledge of the proposal.
Erik Prince and Oliver North are proposing this nonsense. While Trump is dumb enough to think its a great great great idea anyone else with hint of sense knows that whole idea is stupid, shady and driven by shitty people. One who is a scumbag mercenary. The other an old scumbag from old timey days.
I like how Republicans and other idiots elected a man that is actually doing the very unconstitutional, fascist things they always accused the evil black man Obama of doing, in their phantom delusions, of course.
