CNN political commentator Ana Navarro blasted President Donald Trump and fellow CNN analyst Paris Dennard on Sunday when Dennard said that by defending themselves against Trump’s accusations that they are “political hacks,” intelligence officers are behaving in a political manner.
“Time and time again, we have seen that [Trump] does not back up the U.S. intelligence community,” Navarro said, pointing out that the president has had an uneasy relationship with the intelligence community since his first day in office when he stood in front of the wall at the CIA honoring fallen agents and talked about the size of his inaugural crowds.
“He does it over and over again,” he said. “He’s the commander-in-chief. It’s just not befitting of him.”
There are people with years of service to the country behind them, she said, so when Dennard accused them of being political operatives by taking to the media to defend themselves, she let fly.
Trump can make as much “background noise” as he wants, she said, “It doesn’t matter because Bob Mueller doesn’t care. He will continue investigating and we will get closure.”

"Depictions of the Confederate battle flag are unauthorized in public and work spaces aboard an installation," the Marine Corps wrote in guidance to the troops.
The ban applies to bumper stickers, clothing and flags among other items.
"The Confederate battle flag has all too often been co-opted by violent extremist and racist groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in our Corps," the Marines explained.
"Our history as a nation, and events like the violence in Charlottesville in 2017, highlight the divisiveness the use of the Confederate battle flag has had on our society," the continued. "The presents a threat to our core values, unit cohesion, security, and good order and discipline."

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed
George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.
"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
