>POTUS tweeted there is a LOT of perhaps 'HOT' intel on the truth of El Paso?
The word "HOT" is often used in the context of Intel Ops
POTUS uses this word infrequently in his tweets, but usually in terms of information
In US counterintelligence the word is associated with HUMINT. For Example, "HotR" is a DoD acronym for HUMINT On-Line Tasking and Reporting System.
HotR is a web-based software application that supports DoD HUMINT, as well as DoD Counterintelligence.
