CIA Chief Admits US Meddles In Foreign Elections “For Democracy”

Former CIA chief James Woolsey has admitted on Fox News that the United States meddles in foreign elections "in the interests of democracy."

Former CIA chief James Woolsey appeared on Fox News to push the Deep State narrative of how dastardly those 13 Russian Facebook users were in “disparaging” Hillary Clinton and “meddling” with America’s democracy.

Woolsey did his Deep-State duty and proclaimed the evils of so-called “expansionist Russia” and dropped dubious ‘facts’ like “Russia has a larger cyber-army than its standing army,” before he moved on to China and its existential threats.

But then, beginning at around the 4:30 mark in the video below, the real debacle of the conversation begins as Ingraham asks Woolsey, “Have we ever tried to meddle in other countries’ elections?

He responds, surprisingly frankly, “Oh probably… but it was for the good of the system...”

To which Ingraham replies, “We don’t do that now though? We don’t mess around in other people’s elections?

Prompting this extraordinary sentence from a former CIA chief…

Well…hhhmmm, numm numm numm numm… only for a very good cause…in the interests of democracy.

So just to clarify – yes, the CIA chief admitted that Democracy-spreading CIA meddles in the Democratic elections of other nations “in the interests of democracy.”
