"'Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration -- not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump -- that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust,' wrote former analyst for the National Security Agency Jack R.

"'It is CIA's mission to provide the President with the best intelligence possible and to explain the basis for that intelligence,' the statement read. 'The CIA does not, has not, and will never hide intelligence from the President, period.'"

Apparently all of this has Trump incensed.
