I'm Sure It Was Just a Figure of Speech.
Phil Mudd, CNN terrorism analyst, career spook and former deputy to then FBI director Robert Mueller said of Donald Trump, "Government is going to kill this guy."
Even with "fire and fury" and "lock and load" permeating the Washington banter, saying that the guys you used to work with in the government are "going to kill" your president is kinda out there.
I don't think these Deep State types will actually have to kill Trump. Probably it would be enough to just bust a cap in his ass or wing him in the shoulder. He'd probably resign in a heartbeat, head back to his golf course and sit in solitude staring out the window in the pre-dawn hours looking for a convoy of black cars bearing FBI raiders.
Mudd joined the CIA in 1985, moved to the counter-terrorism branch in 1992, rose to a deputy director, CIA before joining Mueller at the FBI in 2005. The guy has been around and he seems pretty well plugged in.
