James Clapper on Intel Being Hidden from Trump: I Do Know the Intel Community Is Concerned on Trump Leaking Secrets

‘There is some mystery about just exactly what the relationship is particularly personally between President Trump and Putin’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CLAPPER: “Well, first, as an intelligence guy, you know, you kind of cringe when you see articles like that. If the president didn’t know about this program with the Russians, assuming the “New York Times” article is accurate, well, he sure does now. I do know there are other instances where there have been concerns about U.S. Intelligence capabilities, particularly when it comes to Russia. Since there is some mystery about just exactly what the relationship is particularly personally between President Trump and Putin. So I think we can’t confirm or deny, but it’s certainly plausible, and I do know there is concern in the intelligence community about that.”
