Is President Trump a National Security Risk?Posted: February 16, 2018
McCarthy is a prolific writer on legal and national security matters who recently tweeted suggesting that President Trump may be a national security risk because of his reported extramarital affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels.
If true, this latest report adds to McCarthy’s existing concern that Donald Trump is compromised and is at risk of being blackmailed, manipulated, or worse.
Last November, intelligence reporter Howard Blum reported that American intelligence personnel met with their Israeli counterparts and warned them that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has “leverages of pressure” over Trump.
Blum reported the American intelligence personnel warned their Israeli counterparts to be careful what secrets they share because they feared Trump would compromise them.
I join Andrew C. McCarthy in being concerned that President Trump has opened himself up to blackmail, so it’s eminently reasonable to ask:
is President Trump himself a national security risk?
