WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump’s team says he is receiving formal intelligence briefing three times a week.

Spokesman Sean Spicer says Trump is also meeting daily with incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn to be briefed on intelligence matters.

Trump has challenged the necessity of a daily intelligence briefing, telling Fox News Sunday in a recent interview that he doesn’t need to hear the same information every day. He says he’s told intelligence officials to let him know if situations change.

Trump has also publicly challenged the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the presidential election in order to help his prospects.
