Director Of National Intelligence Slams Trump Crictics
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Wednesday called it "troubling" to hear outside officials criticize the White House's approach to intelligence.

In a speech at the Billington CyberSecurity Summit in Washington, Coates ended with a shot at officials like his predecessor, James Clapper, who have slammed the Trump administration.  

"I find it troubling many outside the current arena, including former officials, criticize the [intelligence community's] recent record and expressed concern about [its] capabilities with the president," said Coats. 

Last month, Clapper told CNN that he believes Trump "likes intelligence on a selective basis," suggesting this meant that when the intelligence suited Trump's politics, he was OK with it.
