Ex-FBI Negotiator Evaluates President Trump’s Negotiating Style

By Allan Lengel

Former FBI crisis negotiator Chris Voss talks to CNBC’s “Power Lunch” about the negotiating tactics of President Donald Trump and Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Voss calls Trump “an assertive, openly aggressive negotiator” and notes that the problem with that style is that “people get tired of dealing with them.”

Voss says, for example, Trump’s recent openness to working with Democrats on policy projects like tax reform and health care. “The reason why he’s going to the Democrats is because Republicans are tired of him,” Voss tells CNBC.

Voss, founder of the  business consulting company, The Black Swan Group, says of Kim Jong Un has a tendency toward self importance, with someone like that you should ask “what does he see in the future that he wants?”

Accused National Security Administration leaker Reality Winner revealed she “screwed up royally” when she smuggled classified information — hidden in her pantyhose — out of an NSA facility in Georgia and sent material to the media, according to documents of her FBI interview, ABC News reports.

A transcript of Winner’s FBI interview was made public in a court filing on Wednesday night.

Winner, 25, faces charges of leaking government information to the media outlet The Intercept about Russian interference in the 2016 election, including information on hacking into a voting machine software supplier, ABC News reports.

She admitted in the FBI interview she had read reports of Russian efforts to compromise voter data and wondered why the information she possessed wasn’t public.

“I saw the article and was like, ‘I don’t understand why this isn’t a thing,'” she said. “It made me very mad. I guess I just didn’t care about myself at that point. Yeah, I screwed up royally.”

She faces up to at least 9 years in prison if convicted at trial.
