Is US Intel Holding Back From President Trump? (Newsmax 2/16/17)


By Fred Fleitz

According to a front page article in The Wall Street Journal today, U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised.

The Journal story cited former and current intelligence officials.

If true, this would be a dangerous and unprecedented act of defiance by unelected intelligence officers. The acting Director of National Intelligence denied this report.

I suspect this story is probably untrue for several reasons.

While I believe these claims are coming from a handful of current and former intelligence officials put in place by the Obama administration, most intelligence officers would never do this because they know they work for the president and such behavior would cost them their jobs.

I’m also certain CIA Director Mike Pompeo would never tolerate CIA officers withholding intelligence from the president.
