Trump’s Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats is suddenly trending today – that’s because, at least in part, because of this moment when he has to hear from the news that Trump wants to meet with Putin at the White House.
Coats: "Say that again? Ok, that's going to be special." pic.twitter.com/wzPTXXHZ4p

That is not good.
To make it even worse, he admits that he didn’t know Trump was going to let in Russian ambassador Kislyak and his buddy Lavrov into the White House on their last trip either.
Oh yeah, that sounds totally secure!!
.@mitchellreports asks DNI Dan Coats about Trump's statement about how the interference "could be other people."— Julia Ioffe (@juliaioffe) July 19, 2018
Coats: "Well, 'could' is not a definitive statement."
DNI head Dan Coats, after learning on stage at Aspen that Trump had invited Putin to Washington, gave a bit of a warning. "If I were asked that question, I would look for a different way of doing it," he said, when asked if he thought another one-on-one meeting was a good idea.— Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) July 19, 2018
