The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday evening that President-elect Donald Trump is working with advisers on a plan to restructure the country’s top spy agency due to a belief that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has become politicized. However, incoming Trump administration spokesman Sean Spicer refuted that report on Thursday, claiming that "there is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure." The conflicting stories come in the wake of the real-estate mogul's public mocking of U.S. intelligence agencies and their conclusion that Russian-backed hackers were involved in disrupting the 2016 presidential election. The Journal reported that the alleged plan will include a restructuring of the whole of the Central Intelligence Agency and the cutting back of staffing at the Virginia headquarters.
