Officials have urged the intelligence community to supply President Trump with fewer analysis reports compiled by experts and more raw intelligence, the Associated Press reported Saturday.
Raw intelligence was a larger priority under the former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the report said. He was ousted last month for misleading White House officials about the contents of his discussion with Russia's U.S. ambassador.
Many intelligence experts in the past have raised concerns about the possibility that Trump would want to sidestep data analysts during his presidency.
“The risk is that you request raw data to support a conclusion and you avoid seeing anything that contradicts it,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told The Hill in January.
“We can already see we have a president-elect who has difficulty with facts that are at odds with the narrative that he wants to tell or diminish his achievements.”
Do you know that feeling you get when the music gets louder in the horror movie right before somebody gets axed in the face?
Yeah well I have that feeling right now.
Donald Trump knows NOTHING about intelligence gathering and he would not be able to make heads or tails out of it.
So who is he going to call in to help to understand what he is looking at?
I can tell you right now that the guy whose hand would go up the fastest to volunteer for that job would be Stephen Bannon.
You know, the conspiracy theorist who used to head Breitbart news and once thought that Sarah Palin was destined for the White House.
Yep, here comes the axe to the face.
