In general, requests from a former President are supported by officials.
“The intelligence community supports requests for intelligence briefings by former presidents and will review any incoming requests, as they always have,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told CNN on Thursday.
A senior administration official told CNN the former president has not submitted any requests at this point. There are many ways intelligence can be presented, the official said, something the intelligence community would formulate should any request come in.
Some detractors have been concerned about Trump’s potential access to classified information while he’s out of office.
Throughout his time in office, Trump often expressed distrust and, sometimes, disdain for the intelligence community.
