Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump flew into a rage every time US intelligence warned him about Russia, so officials gave up briefing him on it, report says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump was briefed less and less with warnings about Russia's behavior towards the US because he would get angry when presented with intelligence about it, a CNN report said. 

Early in his presidency, officials learned to limit their verbal briefings on the topic and would often see their written materials ignored, according to multiple former White House officials cited in the report from CNN's Jim Scuitto. 

"The President has created an environment that dissuades, if not prohibits, the mentioning of any intelligence that isn't favorable to Russia," one former senior national security staffer told CNN. 

The current Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe — who started in May — and National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien both denied the accounts.
