Spokesman Denies Donald Trump Is Mulling Plans to Overhaul Top US Intelligence Agencies

"There is no truth to this idea of restructuring" intel community: Sean Spicer

But Spicer called that report "100 percent false" in a telephone call with reporters about the presidential transition today.

"These reports are false. All transition activities are for information gathering purposes, and all discussions are tentative," Spicer said, pushing back on the notion that the president-elect was considering an overhaul of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

He added, "I want to reiterate, there is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure. It is 100 percent false.”

The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the planning, reported that Trump was working with top advisers on a plan to restructure the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which oversees the country's intelligence community.

People familiar with the planning told The Wall Street Journal that the potential reforms were driven by Trump's belief that the agencies have become politicized and bloated.
