Remember all those horror stories coming out of the old USSR where the KGB was installed in all branches of the government to keep track of it’s people?
Well thank god that does not happen here in the good old US of A, right?
Or does it?
The White House planted two political officials with no public health experience at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep tabs on the agency and its scientists, according to The Associated Press.
Nina Witkofsky was appointed as senior advisor to CDC Director Robert Redfield at the agency’s Atlanta headquarters in June and within weeks had been promoted to CDC acting chief of staff.
The second political arrival, Chester “Trey” Moeller, is Witkofsky’s deputy.
Witkofsky, the AP said, played a small role in Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign. Her CDC profile also says she has worked in governmental affairs for 20 years, including at the State Department.
Has the US now created a KGB like section for spying on governmental officials?
