Breaking: Former CIA Operative Reveals Plan To Take Out Trump

The level of division surrounding Donald Trump's status as president is perhaps best illustrated by the number of former and present government officials and operatives who openly oppose him.

Valerie Plame, an ex-CIA agent who became famous when her cover was blown, hopes to raise a billion dollars through crowd sourcing to buy Twitter so she can put an end to the president’s tweeting habit.

“Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter,” the 54-year-old former spy explained on her campaign’s GoFundMe page. At last report, she had received $5,000 in donations, according to the Daily Mail. “From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way,” Plame wrote. “The bad news is Twitter has ignored growing calls to enforce their own community standards and delete Trump’s account. The good news is we can make that decision for them.”

She continued: “Twitter is a publicly traded company. Shares = power. This GoFundMe will fund the purchase of a controlling interest in Twitter. At the current market rate that would require over a billion dollars — but that’s a small price to pay to take away Trump’s most powerful megaphone and prevent a horrific nuclear war.” Despite enthusiastic response to the fundraising effort, there also has been criticism. Some people think Plame is legitimately exercising her constitutional rights, while those on the other side accuse her of trying to deny the president his free speech.

Others are skeptical that the former agent can amass enough money to purchase the social-media site. Its reported value is about $12 billion, with shares selling for $16. Undaunted, Plame claims she can at least acquire a “significant stake” that will give her a platform to “champion this proposal at the annual shareholder meeting.” She said that if the campaign falls far short of its goal, the contributions will go to Global Zero, an anti-nuclear war group.

It is not the first time Trump’s opponents have called for his expulsion from Twitter. However, the site’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, continues to defend the president. He recently argued that Americans need to “hear directly from our leadership.”

Trump often uses Twitter to lash out at his critics and threaten foreign leaders, causing Plame and others to worry that he will spark a major international conflict. The Daily Mail noted that the president has tweeted several warnings to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, who claims to be developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. Trump recently told the autocratic ruler that the United States will release the “fire and fury” of American military forces on North Korea if the nuclear program escalates.

Kim recently said his forces were preparing to launch a missile toward Guam, a U.S. territory that hosts two large American military bases. North Korea’s state-run media agency put out a fake video showing Trump alongside a bombed Guam cemetery. Kim declared that he is prepared to reduce the United States to “a heap of ashes.” In spite of the war of words, Trump insisted this week that tensions between the two countries are subsiding. Regarding Kim, the president said he was beginning to “respect him.”

Plame’s CIA career ended during President George W. Bush’s administration, when leaked information exposed her identity. She now uses her married last name, Wilson.
