    CIA staff complained about Obama White House, new book claims

    The revelation comes in commentator Doug Wead's new book "Inside Trump's White House: The Real Story of His Presidency," which is set for release on Nov. 26.

They would have a meeting every week, and at the conclusion of the meeting there was always the suggestion, ‘Let’s meet again in two weeks.’ Nothing was ever resolved. Nothing was ever good enough," the book said, quoting the White House source.


    The original article had to be edited after Fox News critics pointed out the facts. Now the article reflects these corrections by saying

    EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version of this story accurately quoted the book as describing "PC" as standing for "politically correct" in characterizing certain Obama administration meetings.

      In the OP

      Fox News failed to vet the information it got and published the author's ridiculous claim.


      By the way, did you notice the unnamed source from the anti-Obama "Deep State"?
