Trump’s daily intelligence briefings are tangentially related to the attempt to provide cover for Hillary’s lie that Russia helped Trump in ridding us of Hillary. Said President-elect Trump to Fox News’ Chris Wallace: “I don’t need to be told the same thing every day, every morning, same words. ‘Sir, nothing has changed. Let’s go over it again.’ I don’t need that. … If something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one minute’s notice.”
The terminally stupid talking heads are outraged. President-elect Trump, as the establishment full well knows has a different animal on the prowl, a man who’s looking to eliminate redundancies; who’s aware of the cost of a scarce resource: time.
More crucially, the daily intelligence briefings likely comprise a good deal of “analysis,” and NOT original intelligence intercepts. Perhaps Mr. Trump is not wild about the quality of “analysis” America has been receiving from 17 highly politicized intelligence agencies. (Talk about redundancies!) Ilana Mercer writes she would like to know and compare the original intelligence intercepts with the analysis rendered by the “experts,” before making life-and-death decisions.
