Adam Schiff hopes intelligence community will ‘dumb down’ briefings for Trump

In an interview with NBC News, Schiff was asked about plans from the intelligence community to begin providing Trump with briefings once he officially secures the Republican nomination. Schiff said that though the plans are standard practice, Trump represents an extraordinary circumstance and should not receive the briefings.

“Well, that is the practice,” Schiff said. “But we’ve never had a situation where one of the candidates for president has been so criminally negligent when it comes to handling, if not worse, when it comes to handling classified information.”

“So I have to hope, and knowing the intelligence community as I do, that they will dumb down the briefing for Donald Trump,” he continued. “That is, they will give him no more information than absolutely necessary. Nothing that would reveal sources or methods. Because we can’t trust that he will do the right thing with that information, he’s been so reckless. So yes, it does concern me; it is part of a long tradition. They will be wary of what they share with him, and they should.”

Schiff has positioned himself as one of Trump’s foremost rivals in Congress, leveraging the position to quench the Democratic nomination for former Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) Senate seat, following her death.
