image for Schiff: No reason Trump should get intel briefings ever again

"There's no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future.

I don't think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future he certainly can't be trusted," Schiff said.

NEWS: “There’s no circumstance,” in which #Trump should receive another intelligence briefing once he leaves office, @RepAdamSchiff tells @margbrennan, saying the Biden team should cut off his briefings.

Earlier this week, former top intel official Sue Gordon urged similarly — Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) January 17, 2021.

"My recommendation, as a 30-plus-year veteran of the intelligence community, is not to provide him any briefings after Jan. 20," she wrote.

"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.".
