Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued a warning to President Donald Trump prior to his inauguration in 2017: “You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” Since 1947, the Central Intelligence Agency has been the “eyes and ears” of presidents. The stakes of the relationship between the elite spy agency and the U.S.’ elected leaders are high, says “The Spymasters” author Chris Whipple: “The stakes range from starting wars to averting Armageddon.” In her conversation with Whipple, Lone Star Analysis’ director of competitive intelligence Laurie Young will explore this in-depth history of the CIA told through the Agency’s directors and how their interactions with our U.S. presidents have shaped history.

Chris Whipple is a writer, documentary filmmaker and speaker who has written for many publications including Newsweek, Vanity Fair and Politico. His previous book, “The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency,” was a New York Times bestseller in 2017. Former Secretary of State James Baker III called Whipple “an accomplished historian, hard-nosed journalist, and master storyteller.”
