Is The Intelligence Community Trying To Undermine Trump?

by MICHAEL BARONE, NationalReview --

On Wednesday, in his first news conference as president-elect, Donald Trump came out swinging — against some of the media (while praising others), against the policies and performance of the Obama administration, and against the intelligence community.

He had some legitimate reasons. One was CNN’s report that Trump had been briefed that Russian operatives say they have compromising information about him. And BuzzFeed published a 35-page document it described as “a dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, (alleging) Russia has compromising information on Trump.”
