Trump to Appoint Billionaire Know-Nothing to Root Out 'Low-Life Leakers'

Trump to Appoint Billionaire Know-Nothing to Root Out 'Low-Life Leakers'”

The claim was originally made by John Schindler, a former National Security Agency analyst, writing in a column for the New York Observer. A new report from the Wall Street Journal alleges some of that candy is being withheld from the president himself.

Trump officials also are urgently needed at State and the Pentagon.

"This is not about who won the election", Lowenthal told the Journal. Panetta is Cerberus adviser on intelligence and security. Michael Flynn, once a trusted member of Trump's inner circle. Trump is in a heated battle with the United States intelligence community, which has unleashed an unprecedented flood of leaks about ties between his administration and the Kremlin. Further to that, it was revealed that Flynn had lied about the nature of those conversations to Vice President Mike Pence, who defended Flynn on national television.

But if the report is true, it would compound growing suspicions that intelligence agencies are leaking classified information illegally to media outlets to damage and confuse the Trump administration. Trump tweeted on Thursday.

Previous reports have suggested that Trump's team is weighing a structural overhaul of some intelligence agencies.

Desch and his team have put forward the proposals in a paper published in the American Geophysical Union journal, Earth's Future . Another would spray sea water into the atmosphere to create clouds that would reflect sunlight away from the surface.

The White House, however, is denying it all.

"What was wrong was the way that people, including yourselves, were given the information", Trump said Thursday, referring to the news media, during a wide-ranging White House press conference.

Trump was slow to accept the conclusion by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation had meddled in last year's election, and he lashed out Wednesday at the intelligence community for "illegally" leaking information that preceded the resignation of Michael Flynn as national security adviser. But the WSJ's sources claim that the USA intelligence community continues to maintain that Trump won the election with the help of Russian interference and that his administration is compromised by his relationship with the country.

Trump's efforts to make the intelligence community fall in line are being backed by Congressional Republicans.

Trump enlisted his friend Stephen Feinberg, the co-founder of private equity giant Cerberus Capital Management, to lead the review, despite the fact that the 56-year-old financier has no prior experience in government or government intelligence.
