Trump withholding information on North Korea, congressmen claim

Chairmen raise concerns about "disconnect" between intel community and administration on DPRK

The chairmen of three U.S. House of Representative committees urged President Donald Trump, in a letter published on Thursday, to stop withholding from Congress information pertaining to North Korea and current negotiations with the DPRK.

The letter, signed by Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Eliot Engel, the Chairman House Armed Services Committee Adam Smith, and the Chairman House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff comes just one week before Trump is set to stage a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi, Vietnam.
