White House Plans to Have Trump Ally Review Intelligence Agencies [View all]

Source: New York Times

WASHINGTON — President Trump plans to assign a New York billionaire to lead a
broad review of American intelligence agencies, according to administration
officials, an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail
their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the
president’s worldview.

The possible role for Stephen A. Feinberg, a co­founder of Cerberus Capital
Management, has met fierce resistance among intelligence officials already on edge
because of the criticism the intelligence community has received from Mr. Trump
during the campaign and since he became president. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump
blamed leaks from the intelligence community for the departure of Michael T. Flynn,
his national security adviser, whose resignation he requested.

There has been no announcement of Mr. Feinberg’s job, which would be based
in the White House, but he recently told his company’s shareholders that he is in
discussions to join the Trump administration. He is a member of Mr. Trump’s
economic advisory council.
