A former CIA analyst is sounding the alarm about plans by intelligence agencies to get politically involved in the 2024 election to stop the Republican candidate.
Dr. John Gentry, a Georgetown professor who spent 12 years as a CIA intelligence analyst, said the politicization of intelligence agencies in the age of Trump has become a “significant problem” and is confident they will interfere in the 2024 election.
“My guess is that the the proverbial Deep State within the intelligence community will reemerge because presumably a Republican candidate will again be seen as a threat to the internal policies that many intelligence people like,” Gentry told Fox News.

Gentry pointed out how the CIA in a “clearly political” move days before the 2020 election with the “intent to help the Biden campaign” approved a letter penned by 51 former intelligence officials falsely claiming the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop published by the New York Post was “Russian disinformation.”
Gentry said he expects intelligence agencies to resume similar political ploys ahead of the 2024 election.
“I long have thought we are likely to again see former intelligence officers be politically active against Trump or whomever the Republican presidential candidate is next year, and I expect leaking to resume,” Gentry said. “The activities of ‘formers’ have resumed already, a bit before I expected.”
Gentry explained how the CIA and other agencies over the years have become “woke”, especially after the Obama administration accelerated “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” policies.
“It was an effort half a century ago to get more women and minorities into the intelligence community,” Gentry said. “This was done under the rubric of affirmative action. It gradually became more of a policy through the Clinton administration. But it took a significant step forward, or not, depending on your perspective, when President Obama signed an executive order designed to improve diversity and inclusion in the federal workforce.“
Specifically, Gentry said former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper were driving forces of DEI policies in the intelligence community.
Brennan and Clapper were both “very strongly supportive of Obama’s desire to transform the federal workforce, and so they began to accelerate this process and did a number of things from the standpoint of policy actions, in terms of specific recruitment efforts, for example, and they pushed their employees to be more concerned about diversity and inclusion issues and, even in Brennan’s case, to be politically active,” Gentry said.
Gentry went on to claim that the politicization of the agencies driven by the left has demoralized rank-and-file employees within these agencies.
“There are a lot of people who are unhappy about it because it’s politicizing the workforce, and it’s dividing the workforce among people who believe in DEI policies and those who don’t,” Gentry said.
“And even in the Obama period, the analysis director had people who were beginning to talk about, quote, ‘soft totalitarianism,’” he continued.
“That was a direct result of Brennan’s top-down, politically driven policies; the totalitarianism being a reminder of the Soviet Union and China and so on. Well, this has a number of effects in terms of performance and in terms of credibility.”
“So, put all these things together, and I’m pretty confident that we’ll see a reemergence of activism,” Gentry added.
Soon after Joe Biden captured the White House in Jan. 2021, Time Magazine published an article explaining how a “well-funded cabal” of “powerful people” launched a “shadow campaign” to subvert the 2020 election to prevent Trump from getting reelected by “changing laws, steering media and controlling information.”
