Former CIA covert operations officer believes spying is spying, just hope that the U.S. is better

Dana Loesch

On Thursday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange spoke to the media after the FBI announced it was starting an investigation into the CIA document theft. Assange says he plans to use that information to work with companies on cyber security. Dana spoke to Mike Baker, former CIA covert operations officer, about problems all of this could cause for the Trump administration.

"It's not as if the U.S. is alone in trying to learn how to adapt technologies as they advance for the purposes of protecting and ensuring national security interests," Baker says.

Baker explains that every country out, including those that don't have our best interests in mind, if they have the ability and the resources and intelligence, they're doing the same exact thing.

"What that means is that the American people should actually hope that we're good at it because if they understood how nasty and aggressive the real world is out there, ... and they better hope that we're good at this and we are," Baker exclaimed.
