Donald Trump puts off press conference. Falsely blames delay on intelligence community.

That was the tweet Trump sent out yesterday referring to the press conference that he promised to hold today concerning the Russians hacking our election.

Did you notice that Trump put intelligence in quotation marks?

The problem is that according to the intelligence folks that briefing was ALWAYS scheduled for Friday: 

A senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge of the situation told NBC News Tuesday night that the heads of the NSA, CIA, FBI and the director of national intelligence were always scheduled to meet with Trump on Friday. 

But here's the thing, as the president elect Trump can essentially get a briefing pretty much every single day.

We already know that many Senators, including Lindsay Graham and John McCain, have been briefed and believe firmly that the Russians are behind these hacks, so how can Trump not know?

Perhaps because he does not WANT to know.
So Trump is now openly questioning the findings of the American intelligence community and instead choosing to believe Julian Assange. 

And you know the reason for that is because he is worried that the reports by the intelligence community, and there is a big report by the CIA headed to the President's desk in the next few days, will de-legitimize his election and undermine his ability to lead this country.

Which, in my opinion, is exactly what they should do.

    On this Friday's briefing, the 'intelligence' (sic) organizations should plant something that, when leaked and acted upon, proves that HE is the one who gave that info to the Russians. I hope, the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc, are making their case and crossing their t's and dotting their i's, and then get rid of him. By whatever means. Incarcerate him with murderers and rapists, let him be part of the general prison population and throw away the keys to his cell. Refuse to let him have access to the media.

    Or do something more drastic.

    1. Anonymous8:45 AM

      By siding with the enemy and treating our intelligence agencies as he is, he is acting as an enemy of the United states. He is dangerous. If it is believed that he is a danger to the country, then why would I and others object to something "more drastic"? I wouldn't.

    2. Anonymous9:58 AM

      He is mocking and berating our intelligence agencies in front of the world, and praising the enemy they risk their lives to protect us from.

      Wonder how that is going down?

      Don't be surprised if Trump is gunned down! Hope he is wearing enough protection gear under his suits to protect his fat girth! He is a BIG boy!

      I wonder how many death threats are being received against Trump? Remember how President Obama was always such a target in the beginning basically due to his black skin and being elected our wonderful POTUS!

      President Obama is going to create a huge vacancy and we will truly miss him!

I'd love it if someone with know-how redid that scene using Trump in the car instead of Denzel. They could also use Putin's face in place of the Russian woman who lights up her cigarette before the shooting starts.

    Although Trump can't yet be accused of treason, he has defied the Logan Act that prohibits negotiations with foreign enemies. Lawrence O'Donnell talked about this the other day and it is mind-blowing that not more is being said about Trump's relationship with Putin and others as serious in legal terms. Once he's sworn in, hopefully more will be done re this. Assange isn't govt, but he is so tied to Putin, and in an ethical way Trump is again defying the Logan Act. It is unbelievable how he keeps supporting the enemy and saying a big f-you to our American intel agencies.

      We need both Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump to DIE of coronaries, aneurisms, strokes, whatever it takes. They're old. They're obese. Neither are the picture of health. Far younger men than them have died at younger ages.

    2. Anonymous12:13 PM

      CNN says that Palin was "an early Trump supporter" however that is untrue.

      Remember, Palin was firmly on the Cruz bandwagon until it looked like Trump would prevail and only then did she ditch Cruz and ally with Trump.

      Just as this newest flip flop on Assange demonstrates, Palin simply floats in the wind, has no ideas or opinions of her own and only mimics the political ideals of whomever she has aligned herself with at the moment.

      If Trump does go down she'll jump on the Pence/Ryan bandwagon and act like she's always lived there.

      She's worthless as a leader but at times can be a useful idiot to those who are already in power, although with her reputation preceding her she is found to be useful by fewer powerful people on fewer occasions and there are very few remaining supporters that find that her opinion matters.

      She's not been invited out of state on any sort of political junket in over 6 months; basically her political dance card is empty, regardless of how many tweets and FB screeds she "writes" on behalf of the current political climate.

      Those are D.C. numbers.

      The most effective communication is to call their LOCAL office. You speak with a staffer but your message is much more likely to have some effect.

      Also when your representative has a local meeting or town hall, GO THERE. Speak up. Ask questions. Go often and make sure your face is recognized as a regular.
