Some U.S. intelligence officials are concerned that Donald Trump's
"shoot from the hip" style could pose national security risks as they
prepare to give him a routine pre-election briefing once he is formally
anointed as the Republican presidential nominee.
Eight senior security officials told Reuters they had concerns over
briefing Trump, whose brash, unpredictable campaign style has been a
feature of his rise as an insurgent candidate. Despite their worries,
the officials said the "Top Secret" briefing to each candidate would not
deviate from the usual format to avoid any appearance of bias.
