President Donald Trump is now squabbling with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
In his Twitter attack Thursday, Trump called Clapper a hypocrite and referenced a ‘beautiful letter’ sent by Clapper after election night.
According to Business Insider, Clapper says the congratulatory note told Trump the intelligence community would “abide by the long-standing principle of the IC always telling ‘truth to power.”
Apparently, Trump took that as a compliment, rather than as the perfunctory message Clapper intended it to be.
Clapper said the president-elect thanked him three times for the note during an intelligence briefing on January 6th.
Five days later, Trump lashed out at the intel community after CNN that Trump had been briefed on a salacious dossier compiled by a former MI6 officer.
