    I thought that it was an obvious and based fact by now that the entire governmental intelligence agencies were 'shady'.

    Depends on who is their client. (President)

    I think that there needs to be clear & strongly enforced restrictions on any President to not use the CIA in violation of any laws or treaties & carrying strong personal (criminal) repercussions if deliberately misused.
    Like my gun analogy, the CIA can be used for good, defensive purposes...but it can & has been used by some Presidents for dark, un-American & evil purposes as well.
    Like any weapon, I can foresee being tempted to use it in violation of law...& sometimes that may even be justified....BUT...No President should ever feel that he/she can use it with no legal responsibility/repercussions after the fact. (like any criminal defendant, a former President can present mitigating evidence at trial)
