Trump’s transition team has another causality.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey has left the transition team, a spokesman confirmed in a statement Thursday evening.
“Effective immediately, Ambassador Woolsey is no longer a Senior Advisor to President-Elect Trump or the Transition. He wishes the President-Elect and his Administration great success in their time in office,” spokesman Jonathan Franks said in an email.
Woolsey, who served as CIA director under President Bill Clinton, joined President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign as a senior adviser in September.
The Washington Post reports Woolsey felt he’d been excluded from discussions on intelligence matters with Trump and retired Lt. General Michael Flynn, who is set to be the next national security adviser.
