Ex-CIA Analyst: Trump Doesn't Understand Role Of Intelligence

President Donald Trump caused another stir in the U.S. intelligence community recently when he called former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of National Intelligence James Clapper “hacks.”

That comment was in alignment with the President saying he trusted Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assertions that Russia hadn’t interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections.

To learn more about how the intelligence community may be feeling about this, I turn to Paul Kinsinger. He is a former intelligence analyst for the CIA.
