When told by officials that it was an independent country, he said Bhutan was in India. "They said it was fake news".

The report, compiled by the entire USA intelligence network, confirmed the President's belief that China poses a cyberthreat to the us, but said that was also true of Russian Federation, notwithstanding his reluctance to treat Vladimir Putin as anything other than a personal friend. On the same day that Mr. Coats-a former Republican Congressman from IN with strong conservative bona fides-and Mr. Haspel, who was appointed by the President, offered assessments of the threats to the USA that were distinctly at odds with his pronouncements, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced a measure warning against "a precipitous withdrawal" of American troops IN both Syria and Afghanistan.

The intelligence community is "very pleased" with President Trump's decision to expel 61 Russian intelligence officers previous year, assessing the evictions had "tremendous impact" on Moscow's "ability to hurt us", CIA Director Gina Haspel says.

"Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!" he wrote.

"Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!" he said.

Walcott reported, "The danger, one former intelligence official said, is that those leaders and other intelligence briefers may eventually stop taking such risks in laying out the facts for the president". "Their testimony was distorted [by] press", Trump said in a January 31 tweet.

"It's important for the Republicans in Congress to recognize they have to weigh in with the president to say, 'You can't act without knowledge, '" Pelosi said.

In a letter to Coats, Schumer called Trump's criticism of intelligence agencies "extraordinarily inappropriate" and said it could undermine public confidence in the government's ability to protect Americans.

"I disagree with certain things that they said. I think I'm right, but time will prove that, time will prove me right probably", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Speaking about intelligence agencies generally, Trump added: "I have great respect for a lot people but I don't always agree with everybody".

Their assessments also broke with other assertions by Trump, including on the threat posed by Russian Federation to USA elections, the threat that the Islamic State militant group poses in Syria and North Korea's commitment to denuclearize.

Trump later insisted on Twitter that the USA relationship with North Korea "is the best it has ever been". They testified that Iran continues to comply with the USA -brokered 2015 nuclear deal and that several thousand Islamic State terrorists still remain in Syria and Iraq.

Trump past year with Iran, saying Tehran was "not living up to the spirit" of the agreement, and. Ms. Haspel testified that Mr. Trump's buddy, Kim Jong-un, was still "commtted tp developing a long-range nuclear-armed missile that would pose a direct threat to the United States".

"The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran", Trump tweeted.
