Earlier this week ex-CIA analyst Ret. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, told Martha MacCallum of Fox News that he thinks that left over members of Obama’s administration are withholding information from the President.
The interview with MacCallum came as the Wall Street Journal released a report claiming that intelligence officials are purposefully withholding information from President Trump. The Gateway Pundit was one of the first to report on the claims from the WSJ article.
From The Free Beacon:
“The problem is this, you have a lot of folks who are either career members of the intelligence community who are skeptical of the current situation or who were at one point political appointees who have burrowed themselves into the infrastructure who are now career intelligence officers,” he said.
Shaffer said it is evident that there are people who are embedded in the current administration that have retained loyalties to past administrations. This causes them to “[judge] for themselves what they should or should not do regarding intelligence.”
“The same mentality where you’ve seen people leaking is the same mentality you see people holding information,” he said.
