A report from the Wall Street Journal indicates that U.S. intelligence officials are withholding information from President Trump because they claim that they’re worried about the information becoming compromised or getting leaked according to officials.
From The WSJ:
In some of these cases of withheld information, officials have decided not to show Mr. Trump the sources and methods that the intelligence agencies use to collect information, the current and former officials said. Those sources and methods could include, for instance, the means that an agency uses to spy on a foreign government.
A White House official said: “There is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening.”…
…It wasn’t clear Wednesday how many times officials have held back information from Mr. Trump.
The officials emphasized that they know of no instance in which crucial information about security threats or potential plotting has been omitted. Still, the misgivings that have emerged among intelligence officials point to the fissures spreading between the White House and the U.S. spy agencies.
The Wall Street Journal is usually a premium source for quality information but this article seemed to be more bias than usual. The article highlighted the apparent mistrust between the intelligence community and President Trump but seemed to make an attempt at making President Trump look incompetent. There was absolutely no mention of how President Obama expanded the powers of the NSA right before he left office and there was little written about how someone is committing Treason by illegally leaking sensitive information.
The intelligence community works for President Trump. President Trump does not work for the intelligence community. If the intelligence community is hiding sensitive information from President Trump then they need to be released from their positions immediately and an investigation needs to take place to see if any charges need to be pressed.
The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!
