Trump Campaign Fires Back at Ex-CIA Chief Michael Morell

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign shot back at former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell on Friday morning, after he suggested the Republican nominee is “not a patriot.” Prominent Trump surrogate and adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn issued a missive to The Daily Beast, saying: “These outlandish and slanderous attacks are signs of desperation from Hillary Clinton’s flailing campaign. She can’t hide from her disastrous record as secretary of State, where she put the State Department up for sale to Clinton Foundation donors while she subjected America to Obama’s weak foreign policy around the globe.”
