Earlier this year, Cohen-Watnick came under scrutiny for his alleged roundabout role in providing information to GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, showing members of Trump's team included in foreign surveillance reports collected by USA intelligence.
NBC News reported Wednesday that the president recently suggested that Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., the commander of USA -led forces in Afghanistan, be fired.
