PRESS secretary Kayleigh McEnany, abandoned attempts to discredit an intelligence report that Russians were offering bounties on US soldiers in Afghanistan and criticized those who leaked the information to the New York Times.

On Tuesday, McEnany also insisted that President Trump “does read” the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) after years of reports stating that he doesn’t and claimed he is the “most informed on planet earth.”

The press secretary sounded off on The Times publication of the leaked intelligence report, “The front page of the New York Times is not the venue for discussing classified information,” she said.

“As a result of this New York Times report, who’s going to want to crop cooperate with the United States intelligence community?”

“Who’s going to want to be a source or an asset, if they know that their identity could be disclosed?” she added.

“Which allies will want to share information with us, if they know that some rouge intelligence officer can go splash that information on the front page of a major U.S newspaper?”

Aside from taking jabs at the intelligence officials, McEnany came to the defense of the president when asked if President Trump read the PDB’s.

“The president does read and he also consumes intelligence verbally. This president, I’ll tell you, is the most informed person on planet earth when it comes to the threats that we face,” she said.

“You have Ambassador O’Brien who sees him in person twice a day, who sometimes takes the upwards of half a dozen calls with this president.”

“He’s constantly being informed and briefed on intelligence matters, but I’m not going to allow the New York Times to dictate when we give top secret information and don’t give top secret information,” added McEnany.

She argued that the leakers were “rough intelligence officers who are imperiling our troop’s lives.”

“We will not be able to get – very likely not be able to get – a consensus on this intelligence, because of what was leaked to the New York Times,” McEnany said.
