Regardless of the outcome of his impeachment trial, President Donald Trump should immediately be cut off from intelligence briefings, said the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

More from the article...

..."There's no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing," Representative Adam Schiff said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation." "I don't think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future."

Some intelligence partners had "probably" started withholding information from the U.S. because they feared their sources and methods wouldn't be safeguarded, Schiff said....

Given the hisory of Pres Trump and intelligence, e.g., the party he threw for Russians in the Oval Office and told them top secret information[1]), I would tend to agree with Rep Schiff.

1- Horrified' Israeli intel officials were shouting at US counterparts' over Trump leak ( )

I think this was a well-known fact 30 years ago.

Since it's a courtesy at the President's choice,I think Biden should say "well,if you had showed up at the Inauguration...."

The idea that Trump reads any intel lol.

If it's not on TV, he doesn't care.

This - coming from the party that placed a guy on the intelligence committee that was so dumb he literally couldn't identify the Chinese spy sleeping in his own bed. That is bad enough of an indictment of Fart Man, but it gets worse when you realize Pelosi and the rest of the morons were given the full FBI report about Fang Fang doing the Bang Bang with multiple Dem politicians as well as Fart Man and they STILL put him on the Intel committee. Even back when SNL was funny, they could not have written a better joke than what the Dems have actually done.

This is why impeachment is so important. No briefings and no secret service detail. It will effectively cut him off from public life all together. The Republicans should want this is much as anyone, otherwise he'll be chunking grenades in the tent for the next four years.

Irony is one of the great joys of life. I feel like a lot changed in three weeks. For sure the Putschists cost their side votes once Congress reconvened. Significantly enough? We'll never know.
Several Democrats were signaling they were prepared to sing lullabies and make nice. That's gone.
For Trump, golf, maybe a good ghost writer to lay down the details of his struggle, some rallies and fundraisers. Nope. Not anymore. And if he loses his Secret Service detail.... I think he'll discover Frankenstein isnt a tale about the butler for a goth family in the suburbs.

Considering Trump's need for profits regardless of how he gets them him and his family should have absolutely no contact with anyone in our intelligence agencies unless we just want that information sold to a foreign government.

Why would they pay Trump when you just have to pay a Chinese hooker to get the information out of Fart Man? You don't find Swallowswell to be a threat to national security?

Trump will not care and scarcely notice if no one ever shows up to brief him, especially if it keeps him from the television or the golf course. The intelligence community should say they are providing the briefing, but just don't.

Or, even funnier, feed Trump with disinformation, and see who ends up with phony government secrets ginned up to dazzle a dotard. Get him, DJTJ and J-Rad in hot water. They can all get in trouble for selling out the US, even if they are selling BS...

Oh don't worry your treasonous little (2 sizes too small) heart about it. The biggest threat to our nations security has been removed from office (and impeached again).

So you can rest easy now. The adults are finally back in charge and we ok clean up the messes that you maggots made. Go play in the streets with your Qanon garbage and lie to yourselves some more about how you really are the most beautiful insurrectionists in the land and Trumpy really really won!

Trump was cut off from intelligence the day he plopped out of his mother's lady bits.
