Is the intelligence community's hatred of Trump making us less safe?

President Donald Trump slammed intelligence communities news organizations in a Twitter frenzy Wednesday morning

"Democrats these days see the proliferation of leaks about the Trump administration as the acts of public servants revealing the misdeeds of a presidency", Shear continued.

The latest tweet follows a pattern of social media messages that Trump has sent, chastising news organisations both during his campaign for the White House and in the more than three weeks since his inauguration.

Earlier, the U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned amid a flow of intelligence leaks that he had secretly discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador to Washington and then tried to cover up the conversation.

Schindler had written on Sunday that there was an increasing concern within the intelligence community over information security and the extent of the administration's ties to Russian Federation. During the presidential campaign, hecelebrated the hackers who broke into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails and leaked sensitive material.

"Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years", Trump tweeted in another post. "They will be caught". "How does the press get this information that is classified?"

The Department of Justice has not yet responded to either Trump's or the House Oversight Committee's requests for an investigation.

The president has leveraged a hate-hate relationship with much of the political Fourth Estate since before he launched his improbable White House run two summers ago.

But the report adds fuel to the idea that there's an ongoing feud between Trump and the intelligence community.

A White House official denied the allegations, telling the Journal, "There is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening".

Trump's efforts to make the intelligence community fall in line are being backed by Congressional Republicans.

According to Schindler, members of the intelligence community were so anxious about Trump's ties with the Kremlin that they were withholding intelligence from the White House.

The New York Times said this could bring more "uncomfortable scrutiny" upon his investment company, because of its involvement with the Remington gun maker, which produced the rifle used in the deadly Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012.
