image for White House considers revoking Trump's access to intelligence briefings

The White House is debating whether or not it will revoke Donald Trump's access to intelligence briefings in the wake of the Capitol insurrection.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked if the former president would still have access to the classified intelligence reports.

She noted that there had been "no determinations" made at the time the question was asked.

Former presidents typically are given access to intelligence briefings, but Democrats worry Mr Trump might abuse the information in an attempt to use it to his personal advantage.

Susan Gordon, who served as Mr Trump's principal deputy director of national intelligence, added her voice to the chorus of people calling for the former president's access to be revoked.

She warned that Mr Trump “has significant business entanglements that involve foreign entities” and that continued access to intelligence briefings would result in a "potential national security threat".

“There’s no circumstance in which [Trump] should get another intelligence briefing,” he said on CBS's Face the Nation. »
