Former Director of Intelligence Agency Rails Against Trump: ‘Four More Years Would Be Devastating’

Robert Cardillo, former director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency, is warning Americans if voters reelect President Donald Trump in November, the nation will suffer.

Cardillo penned a scathing op-ed in The Denver Post where he criticized Trump for his national security policy decisions and his failed coronavirus response.

He noted he had never voiced his opinion on any other president, until Trump.

“Since I have been eligible to vote, I have never registered with a political party. I remain an independent with a history of voting for candidates I believe in — I focused on their policy and not their party,” Cardillo wrote.

He added, “Before this election, I have never spoken out for or against a candidate for any office. But I can be silent no longer.”

Cardillo went on to explain the American people have been “very well served by those they elected to fill critical national security positions.”

The one exception is Trump.

Cardillo detailed his experience with Trump and claimed the person Americans see during coronavirus press briefings is the same as the one in the privacy of his own office.

“He has little patience for facts or data that do not comport with his personal world view. Thus, the conversations are erratic and less than fully thoughtful,” Cardillo wrote.

He argued Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin “is an unprecedented betrayal of his oath to the Constitution.”

According to Cardillo, Trump’s leadership comes up “tragically short” and pointed to his failure to protect American soldiers and his belittlement of them.

He stressed Trump downplayed the coronavirus pandemic.

“And as damaging as his faulty leadership has been, four more years would be devastating,” Cardillo said.

He went on, “We must elect a thoughtful, moral, responsible, respectful leader on Nov. 3. Our current president is not that leader.”


  1. “what about threatening people in another country to fire some one or cut off their aid is Moral ?

    Get a life and learn the truth and facts before you demean some one.” CHRIS

    CHRIS is still confused.

    CHRIS: why did Joke Biden put pressure on Ukraine over their prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin? Why? If you can’t truthfully answer this question OR if you have no interest in learning the truth about it, how can we take you seriously?

    The IMF, the US and much of Europe wanted Ukraine to deal with corruption. Shokin was made Ukraine’s prosecutor general in Feb 2015 on his promise to fix things, but he did nothing (or worse), so by the time Joke Biden got to Ukraine, a few years later, their patience had run out. THEN Biden made his demand as he was leaving the country. This is clear and simple.

    Contrast THAT with what King Donald The Loser threatened Ukraine. He demanded for Ukraine to put on the pretense of opening an investigation into Biden, TO HELP HIMSELF GET RE-ELECTED, or he would cut off funds! FOR PERSONAL GAIN! Do YOU approve of King Donald The Loser doing this highly illegal act? Yes or no?

    And here YOU are trying to imply that Joke Biden did something wrong. You either are badly ill informed or you know what the truth is and you are lying anyway! Which is it, CHRIS?

  2. So you are saying Biden is thoughtful person? what about threatening people in another country to fire some one or cut off their aid is Moral ? are to call people names when you do not agree with them is respectful? Maybe being in a room full of people including the President to plot a destruction of another persons life by sending the FBI, to bring them down is responsible? come on guy Trump is not an angel but other countries know he keeps his word and are not afraid to make treaties with us, Israel, UAE. and be nominated for a Nobel Peace prize twice this the leader you are afraid of. Get a life and learn the truth and facts before you demean some one.

  3. He sounds like a serious, responsible guy. Why wait all these months to open up? Oh yeah, looks like the orange monster is getting closer to pulling it off. Got to do something! Roll out the out of work ex-exec.
