Morgan Muir, who had led Mr. Biden’s first briefings in the early days of the administration, will oversee the assembly of the written President’s Daily Brief, among other responsibilities.
The new intelligence chief wanted a briefer with experience and an apolitical record. She chose Morgan Muir, perhaps the first time a former White House briefer has returned to the post.
Officials told The New York Times Magazine that the draft of a classified document reporting that Russia favored President Trump in the 2020 election was changed to soften its assessment.
Last year, intelligence officials gathered to write a classified report on Russia’s interest in the 2020 election. An investigation from the magazine uncovered what happened next.
Robert C. O’Brien, the national security adviser, told Fox News that President Trump knew nothing about the reports because the briefer “decided not to” share unverified intelligence with him.
President Trump’s intelligence briefings have gotten renewed attention since he blamed them for failing to sound the alarm early on about the coronavirus.
