Donald Trump Launch Twitter Attacks On US Intelligence Over Russia Hacking

US President-elect, Donald Trump has made a fresh assault on America’s intelligence community.
He said on Twitter that an intelligence briefing he was due to receive on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election – which is said to have benefited Mr Trump – had been delayed.
It said: “The ‘Intelligence’ briefing on so-called ‘Russian hacking’ was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!”

But US intelligence officials insisted there had been no delay in the briefing schedule.
Several US agencies including the FBI and the CIA believe Russia directed hacks against the Democratic Party and the campaign of its presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, releasing embarrassing information through WikiLeaks and other outlets to help Mr Trump win the election.
The hacking resulted in Barack Obama expelling 35 Russian diplomats as part of a raft of new sanctions.
“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions,” Mr Obama said, claiming the extent of data theft and cyber-attacks uncovered “could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government”.
And now, he seems to think the intelligence community hasn’t quite gotten its story straight.
The Obama administration quickly let it be known that, in fact, intelligence leaders always intended to brief Mr. Trump on Friday in New York. And intelligence officials were not amused.
Nor were some Republican political consultants.
But this is not the first time the president-elect has taken a swipe at the men and women of the intelligence community who have concluded that Russia tried to elect him president.
