Twitter Web App : If the story, as told by The New York Times journalist Robert Draper, about the NIE on election interference is true, it is the first example the public knows of the IC tailoring a written product to avoid angering POTUS.

Word for word. Gripping & moving. twitter.com/IntelMattersPo…
