The author, Adam Entous, states that Trump was going to go out of his way to deny Intelligence Briefings to President Obama. But Trump mentions on Twitter that this step is something he “never discussed or thought of.”
The article goes on to discuss the conflicts between Trump and former CIA Director John Brennan, who has had many accusations regarding the president. Brennan had said that Trump was acting inappropriately on important issues ranging from Russia to criticisms of the former president. The topic of the 2016 election is touched on in the article as well, stating that Brennan believes Trump also schemed with the Russians during that time.
