Ex-CIA Member Criticizes Trump’s Decision to Let Russian Government Photographer Into Oval Office

Colin H. Kahl, the former national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, poses question to David S. Cohen

A pair of Democratic Obama-era former government officials had a public conversation on Twitter Wednesday that resulted in a scary conclusion: It was not a good idea to allow Russian media members to poke around the Oval Office.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump held a meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, who is a key figure in the FBI’s probe into the administration’s possible collusion with Russia. However, U.S. media wasn’t allowed in; the photos of the meeting were published by the Russian foreign ministry and by the Russian news agency TASS.

Colin H. Kahl, the former national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, took to Twitter to voice his concern.

Former CIA deputy chief David S. Cohen was quick to answer Kahl’s question.

Kahl went on to explain that allowing Russian photographers to bring equipment in to the president’s office appeared unusual, at least to Biden’s former national security adviser.

Kahl appears to be alluding to the fact that it is a risk to national security to allow the equipment in the Oval Office.

One thing is clear: Nobody in the Trump administration watches the FX hit “The Americans,” or else they would know better.
