Update: Trump to Receive First Classified Briefing (ABC)
WNU Editor: I am willing to bet that there will be little (if anything) of value given in these briefings that Donald Trump does now already know. But I am surprised that this will be his first security briefing .... I thought he was already receiving them. The decision that he will have New Jersey governor Chris Christie and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn with him during this briefing is interesting .... this tells me who will be his key national security advisers should he win the Presidency.
