US intelligence agencies withhold sensitive information from Trump

US intelligence agencies are said to be keeping some sensitive information away from President Donald Trump over concerns about potential leaks, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday night.
The newspaper said current and former US officials have said their hesitations are due in part to lingering questions over possible links between Trump associates and Russia, which they said could potentially compromise the security of such classified information.
Specifically, the officials cited by The Journal said they were hesitant to reveal the "sources and methods" that intelligence agencies use to collect information.
