Trump wanted to deny access to U.S. intelligence information

U.S. President Donald Trump wanted to deny access to traditional intelligence briefings for former heads of state after he left office.

According to Schiff, Trump should be banned from receiving intelligence information because he does not deserve such credibility. The Democrat said that many U.S. partners around the world refused to provide intelligence information to the United States because of concerns about Trump. He stressed that the president has politicized intelligence, which has put the country at risk.

Earlier, U.S. intelligence officials named possible sources of threats to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. It is noted that U.S. intelligence is concerned about threats from armed groups and racist extremists.
