Here’s more in the fight by some in the intelligence community against President Donald Trump.
This is just getting a bit too crazy.
From The Hill:
U.S. intelligence officials have not been sharing some sensitive information with President Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.
Current and former officials told the news source that some information was withheld from Trump in fear that that it would be compromised or leaked.
According to the report, some information presented to the president omitted sources and methods used by intelligence agencies during their operations.
The report claims that no security threats were withheld from the President. However, it’s not clear how much has allegedly been withheld from Trump.
“There is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening,” the White House said.
Trump called out the criminal nature of the leaks.
“From intelligence, papers are being leaked, things are being leaked; it’s criminal action. It’s a criminal act, and it’s been going on for a long time before me, but now it’s really going on,” Trump said during a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
At this point, the claim of withholding information might be more disinformation, to again hype the ‘crisis’ of the Trump-intel community fight.
But if true, also troubling if they are withholding things that the President has a right and an obligation to know.
They’re substituting their policy judgements for the President’s in determining what they think they can omit.
Trump needs to clean house and soon…
