An item buried deep in The Guardian‘s story on Michael Flynn’s resignation presaged the brewing escalation of a feud between Republican President Donald Trump and the intelligence community of the United States:
“…intelligence officials have now signalled that they are prepared to leak aggressively if they feel they are being muzzled.”

The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!
