Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff said Trump should not get another intelligence briefing once he leaves office on Wednesday because “he certainly can’t be trusted.”
“There’s no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future,” Schiff said on ‘Face the Nation’. “I don’t think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future he certainly can’t be trusted.”
Chairman Schiff was agreeing with Susan Gordon, Trump’s former principal deputy director of national intelligence who wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that President Biden should deny Trump intelligence briefings once he leaves office.
“My recommendation, as a 30-plus-year veteran of the intelligence community, is not to provide him any briefings after Jan. 20. With this simple act — which is solely the new president’s prerogative — Joe Biden can mitigate one aspect of the potential national security risk posed by Donald Trump, private citizen,” Gordon wrote.
