Trump vs. Trump?

Trump vs. Trump?

From Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie) morning email thingie:

 

TRUMP V. THE SPOOKS, CONTINUED — “Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump on Leak Concerns,” by WSJ’s Shane Harris and Carol E. Lee: “U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised … 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.” http://on.wsj.com/2kVJpiI

— “White House Plans to Have Trump Ally Review Intelligence Agencies,” by NYT’s James Risen and Matt Rosenberg: “President Trump plans to assign a New York billionaire to lead a broad review of American intelligence agencies, according to administration officials, an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the president’s worldview. The possible role for Stephen A. Feinberg, a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management, has met fierce resistance among intelligence officials already on edge because of the criticism the intelligence community has received from Mr. Trump during the campaign and since he became president. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump blamed leaks from the intelligence community for the departure of Michael T. Flynn, his national security adviser, whose resignation he requested. There has been no announcement of Mr. Feinberg’s job, which would be based in the White House, but he recently told his company’s shareholders that he is in discussions to join the Trump administration. He is a member of Mr. Trump’s economic advisory council.” http://nyti.ms/2lmwlDx

    If we hadn’t seen those leaks, Michael Flynn could still be protecting us. Or Russia. Or someone.

    Darn those leaks.
