Edward Price, Washington Post: I didn’t think I’d ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit.
Edward Price worked at the CIA from 2006 until this month, most recently as the spokesman for the National Security Council.
Nearly 15 years ago, I informed my skeptical father that I was pursuing a job with the Central Intelligence Agency.

This wouldn’t be just my first real job, I thought then; it would be my career.
That changed when I formally resigned last week. Despite working proudly for Republican and Democratic presidents, I reluctantly concluded that I cannot in good faith serve this administration as an intelligence professional.
