Trump 'plans to fire the heads of FBI, CIA and Pentagon if he wins re-election' 


Trump’s execution list: President will immediately fire ‘FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, Defense Secretary Mark Esper AND a long line of senior officials’ if he wins back the White House

Donald Trump is planning on immediately firing FBI Director Christopher Wray, and also intends to replace CIA director Gina Haspel and Defense Secretary Mark Esper if he wins re-election next month, reports suggest.

Their names are reportedly listed atop the president’s post-election ‘execution list’, which also includes a host of other senior officials, two White House sources told Axios. 

Firing Wray, who has been in charge of the FBI since 2017, will reportedly be Trump’s first course of action, followed by the ousting of Haspel from the CIA. 

The two sources told Axios that both Wray and Haspel are almost unanimously ‘despised and distrusted’ by Trump’s inner circle. 

Trump reportedly would have fired them both already, one source said, had it not been for the looming November 3 election, and the political headaches that such motions can cause.

The president’s ire was struck with Wray after he reportedly failed to launch a formal investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and his business dealings in Ukraine. 

Trump was also said to be left furious at his second FBI chief for failing to purge more officials that he believes abused their power to investigate his 2016 election campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.  

Additionally, Trump was reportedly aggrieved by testimony Wray offered to the Senate Homeland Security Committee last month, in which he stated the FBI has not seen widespread election fraud, including with mail-in ballots, contrary to Trump’s repeated claims. 

While Trump appears less than satisfied with Wray’s FBI tenure, a senior FBI official told Axios that ‘Major law enforcement associations representing current and former FBI agents as well as police and sheriff’s departments across the country have consistently expressed their full support of Director Wray’s leadership of the Bureau.’  

As for Haspel, one source said the opinion among the West Wing is that she sees her job as ‘manipulating people and outcomes, the way she must have when she was working assets in the field.

Such a character assessment has reportedly ‘bred a lot of suspicion of her motives.’
