Trump's relationship with the intelligence community was already frayed before he took office, following several outbursts in which he accused the spy agencies of trying to undermine the authenticity of his election win when investigations concluded that Russian Federation had in fact been involved in hacking to influence the outcome.
"Leaks need to be investigated, but those investigations should be conducted in a manner that is not disparaging of our dedicated [intelligence community] professionals, nor destructive to the entire community", Clapper said in a statement Thursday, according to CNN. Trump tweeted Thursday. "The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers!"
The New York Times reported Wednesday evening that President Donald Trump is planning to hire private equity billionaire Steve Feinberg to run a "broad review of American intelligence agencies".
"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".
"Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years", Trump tweeted in another post.
"Now we go nuclear", he wrote on Twitter.
A FURIOUS Donald Trump has accused Russian Federation of "taking" Crimea and rounded on his intelligence agencies amid a deepening scandal over his administration's alleged Moscow links.
While this remains unconfirmed, it is Schindler's first assertion that the intelligence community is withholding intel that has been reportedly corroborated by other officials-the WSJ's sources. "[Intelligence community] war going to new levels. Just got an EM fm senior IC friend, it began: 'He will die in jail, '" Schindler tweeted. "They will be caught!"
The appointment of a Trump political appointee to sensitive positions usually reserved for career intelligence officers is seen as something that could compromise both the professionalism and the independence of the intelligence services at a time when relations between them and the White House are strained.
But the report comes at a particularly tense moment in President Trump's relationship with the intelligence community, elevating fears that the review could be used to root out officials who contradict the president or his advisers.
