Trump set for tense intel meeting

The President-Elect will on Friday receive a classified briefing on Russian hacking from top intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who on Thursday told Senators that Russia was a “full-scope cyber actor that poses a major threat” to the United States.

When asked about Mr Trump’s apparent skepticism over intelligence assessments, Clapper said “I think there is an important distinction here between healthy skepticism, which policymakers … should always have for intelligence, but I think there’s a difference between skepticism and disparagement.”

And in a sign of where the new administration is going..
