Schiff: Trump 'Can't Be Trusted' With Intel Briefings

(CBS's "Face the Nation")

By    |   Sunday, 17 January 2021 08:54 PM EST

President Donald Trump "certainly can't be trusted" with receiving the intelligence briefings, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Sunday.

"There's no circumstance in which this president should get another intelligence briefing, not now, not in the future," Schiff, who led the House Democrats' first impeachment hearings in late 2019, told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "I don't think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future, he certainly can't be trusted.

"We've seen this president politicize intelligence, and that's another risk to the country," Schiff added.

Past presidents are typically given intel briefings as a courtesy.

CBS host Margaret Brennan did not press Schiff on whether Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., should receive classified intelligence or be stripped of his security clearance.

Swalwell, an assistant to Schiff during the first impeachment, was a target for a Chinese espionage effort by known spy Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang.
