The paper reported Thursday morning that us intelligence officials "have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised".

Feinberg, who has no intelligence experience, is a founder of Cerberus Capital Management, a $40 billion firm with a wide range of assets, including the military contractor DynCorp.

Mr. Feinberg, has close ties to Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump's chief strategist, and Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law...

Although the Journal cites unnamed officials as its sources, the White House told the publication that "there is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening".

According to the article, U.S. intelligence services withhold certain secret information from Trump fearing that it may be leaked or compromised. The official said that Feinberg's role is not official until he completes an ethics review.

But the report adds fuel to the idea that there's an ongoing feud between Trump and the intelligence community.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has issued a statement denying a media report that intelligence officials are withholding sensitive security information from President Donald Trump because of fears it could be leaked.

Earlier, he tweeted that "the spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers!"

The Wall Street Journal story said that in some cases of withheld information, officials have decided not to show Trump the sources and methods that the intelligence agencies use to collect information. A new report from the Wall Street Journal alleges some of that candy is being withheld from the president himself.

The statement from Pompeo, a former Kansas representative who was confirmed as CIA head in January, said the agency mission is to "provide the president with the best intelligence possible".
