Donald Trump is set to begin receiving intelligence briefings but Democrat Senator Harry Reid wants them to be fake. Leave it to one of America’s most vile Democrats to play politics with America’s national security.
HARRY REID WANTS CIA TO GIVE TRUMP FAKE INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS
In comments not widely reported last week, the Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said he would rather see the CIA and other intelligence agencies give GOP nominee Donald Trump FAKE briefings than make sure he’s informed before potentially becoming President.
Reid suggested that it would be risky to divulge classified information pertaining to national security to Trump, so it should just be faked.
Even more incredulous is the fact that Reid is the one accusing Trump of being “dangerous”.
“How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy? How could they do that?” Reid asked in an interview with The Huffington Post. See the video here.
“I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything, just fake it, because this man is dangerous,” Reid continued.
“Fake it, pretend you’re doing a briefing, but you can’t give the guy any information.” he added.
Reid repeated the comments in an interview with CNN, prompting anchor Manu Raju to state “You’re basically telling the intelligence community to lie to [Trump].”

Reid is retiring after his current term is up. Thank goodness.
