DHS whistleblower: Intelligence on Russian election interference withheld because it made Trump 'look bad'

In a newly released complaint, a whistleblower alleged that President Trump’s acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary ordered him to hold back intelligence on Russian election interference because it “made the President look bad.” The complaint also alleges that in anticipation of the presidential election, DHS officials sought to downplay the dangers of white supremacy amidst ongoing nationwide protests over racial inequality.
