Many Republicans objected, and Ms. Pearson’s testimony was passed on to Mr. Trump. One participant who attended the meeting said that the next day, February 14, he interrupted the routine briefing on election security. He asked the then Director of National Intelligence, the retired Vice Admiral Joseph Maguire: “Hey, Joe, I understand that you introduced Adam Schiff and told him that Russia liked me better. Why did you tell Greece husband?”
Although Mr. Maguire tried to explain that this was another official, Mr. Trump continued to question him and the meeting broke down. On February 1
Mr. Trump appointed his successor as Richard Grenell (Richard Grenell), he is the German ambassador to China, a former UN spokesperson to the UN, media adviser and Fox News commentator.
Anger and anxiety on the first day
Trump delivered a speech in front of the CIA memorial wall on the first day of the president’s presidency, paying tribute to serving officials of the killed agency, angering some of the agency. During the event, Trump repeatedly made false statements about the size of the crowd at the inauguration ceremony, attacked the news media, and asked why there are so many columns in the lobby of the CIA headquarters.
An agency veteran called the speech “almost a blasphemy against the wall.”
The president likes to bargain and chat on his personal mobile phone, and invite billionaires to join his circle, which disturbs the intelligence agencies. A former senior intelligence official said that because of concerns that Trump would leak information to the Russians, their president discouraged intelligence officials from at least one country (NATO ally) to interact with their American counterparts.
Mr. Trump also provided wealthy businessmen to the Presidential Intelligence Advisory Committee. These businessmen “sometimes make you feel uncomfortable” when listening to the briefing because sometimes “their problems are related to their business dealings.” The official said.
Under the leadership of Mr. Glennell, More and more people worry that, using the drawdown as an excuse, these services may be eliminated by people such as the CIA analyst, who filed a complaint with a Ukrainian whistleblower last year.
