President Trump started and ended the week with moves heaping doubt on his intelligence community’s assessment about Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Over the weekend he announced that departing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats — who mocked Trump’s trust of Vladimir Putin and issued grave warnings about Russian meddling — would be replaced with Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), a deeply pro-Trump legislator who’s spent years calling for an “investigate the investigators”-esque response to the Russia probe.
