Top spies unaware of Morrison’s ministerial appointments

Even the nation’s top spies were unaware of Scott Morrison’s ministerial grab of five portfolios, it has emerged.

Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neill has confirmed Australian intelligence officials did not know about Mr Morrison’s secret appointments, which she described as “damaging” to the nation’s security.

“What I can tell you is that the secretary of my department, the intelligence chiefs, including the head of ASIO, did not know he was the minister for home affairs,” she said on Wednesday, according to a report in The Australian.
