The tension around the “special ” Intelligence Report is building, as CIA Director John Brennan announces Obama will be reading it tomorrow. President-elect Trump has just cited WIKILEAKS as a credible source of information on the alleged “Russian hacking.” The HANNITY SHOW on FOX NEWS just interviewed Julian Assange of WIKILEAKS, and Hannity agrees with President-elect Trump. You cannot expect CIA Director John Brennan to agree that WIKILEAKS is a credible source…period. Brennan himself was hacked not long ago.
Here is the FOX NEWS report on the heated situation:
I am very concerned at this point. I am even having doubts myself on what the truth really is. If Russia did hack any body within our government it will be totally devastating in more ways than one. I know this intense doubt and confusion is present not only in my mind but in the minds of the American people. I am tired and sick of the whole thing. I will welcome the emergence of the “special report” tomorrow, but I will dread hearing Obama’s comments. I pray for President-elect Trump to have the truth in his corner.
Intelligence officials continued to stand by their claim of Russian hacking.
State Department spokesman John Kirby, in a Tuesday evening interview with CNN, said intelligence officials were “100 percent certain in the role that Russia played.”
Intelligence officials are scheduled to brief Congress on the Russia probe on Thursday.
Trump announced the appointment of 11 members to his White House staff including former “The Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault, as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, and Bill Stepien, a former adviser to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was fired following the George Washington Bridge closure scandal, as White House political director and deputy assistant to the president.
- Trump described Senate Democrats as “the Schumer clowns,” referring to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), in a Twitter post calling for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. The post came as Pence met with Congressional Republicans to outline their plans to repeal the measure, while Obama met with Democrats urging them to preserve the law.
