FEATURING KEVIN MARTIN – The heads of several US intelligence agencies gave testimonies to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday directly contradicting the foreign policy positions of President Donald Trump and his administration. The officials included FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.
All three contradicted the positions that Trump has taken on Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Syria. Most strikingly, they made no mention of the US-Mexico border – which Trump has constantly touted as the greatest national security threat facing the US.
President Trump angrily ranted on Twitter against the intelligence heads for contradicting him, saying, “Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!”
