Trump’s new intelligence chief declassified the document and sent it to Senate Republicans investigating the president’s political enemies.

President Donald Trump’s first intelligence briefing as a candidate in August 2016 was led by FBI agents who had just opened an investigation into his team’s ties to Russia, according to a newly declassified document obtained by POLITICO.

The document, a seven-page summary of Trump’s intelligence briefing by the agent who helped lead it, was filed as part of the so-called Crossfire Hurricane probe, the codename for the bureau’s broader Russia investigation.
