A career CIA analyst resigned over what he believed to be “disturbing” actions from President Trump, and despite claiming his resignation isn’t politically motivated, his history tells an entirely different story.
Edward Price penned a scathing op-ed in the Washington Post outlining the reasons he quit his job of over a decade. In it, he outlined several things about the Trump administration he doesn’t like, starting from the campaign and ending with the most recent comments about the dishonest media.
Trump’s actions in office have been even more disturbing. His visit to CIA headquarters on his first full day in office, an overture designed to repair relations, was undone by his ego and bluster. Standing in front of a memorial to the CIA’s fallen officers, he seemed to be addressing the cameras and reporters in the room, rather than the agency personnel in front of them, bragging about his inauguration crowd the previous day. Whether delusional or deceitful, these were not the remarks many of my former colleagues and I wanted to hear from our new commander in chief. I couldn’t help but reflect on the stark contrast between the bombast of the new president and the quiet dedication of a mentor — a courageous, dedicated professional — who is memorialized on that wall. I know others at CIA felt similarly.
But according to Price, the “final straw” was when President Trump reorganized the National Security Council, which Price said was done to exclude the CIA director and director of national intelligence. However, Trump didn’t do anything his predecessors didn’t do, which calls into question Price’s true motivations for quitting since he’s repeating information that’s been disproven.
Well, a look at his history sheds some insight into who he really is, and he doesn’t appear to be the non-partisan patriot he claims to be.
In his LinkedIn profile, Price boasts that he was the Special Assistant to the President during Obama’s last year in office. Prior to that, he was the Spokesperson and Senior Director for the National Security Council.
Further, a peek at Price’s Twitter timeline reveals that he holds far-left beliefs – the same far left beliefs held by the hostile media and Democrats alike who’ve been attacking the new president.

Then there’s this beauty from former Obama adviser and strategist Ben Rhodes, who many believe has been behind the damaging leaks from the Trump administration:
So while Price claims his motivation isn’t political, his own history appears to tell a different story – he’s a far-left radical looking to inflict as much damage on Trump as possible, all while hiding under the guise of being a patriot.
