Angry Trump Demands Congressional Probe Into NBC Leak Of Top Secret Intelligence Report

Tyler Durden's picture

On Thursday evening, during one of his latest Tweetstorms, Trump criticized leaks to several media outlets detailing contents of the classified Russian hacking report which Trump is set to go over any minute.

The leaks came before Trump’s own briefing on those details by the intelligence community. The 50-page report was delivered to US President Barack Obama on Thursday, and is to be delivered to President-elect Donald Trump on Friday by top intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan, the Washington Post reports, one of several outlets that were given priority over the president-elect in learning the details of the document. CNN and NBC News also reported on the classified report, sparking outrage from Trump.

“How did NBC get ‘an exclusive look into the top secret report he (Obama) was presented?’ Who gave them this report and why? Politics!” Trump said in a tweet.

Then, moments ago, following his interview with the NYT this morning in which he suggested that the storm surrounding Russian hacking during the presidential campaign is "a political witch hunt" being carried out by his adversaries, who he said were embarrassed by their loss to him in the election last year, and just prior to the debriefing by US intelligence agencies meant to prove to Trump once and for all that Putin was indeed responsible for his election, an angry Trump doubled down and tweeted that he is "asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it."

As noted before, NBC News on Thursday reported that U.S. intelligence found Russian officials celebrating Trump’s election win.  NBC cited “a senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge” of the intel report that was delivered to President Obama on Thursday and is scheduled to be delivered to Trump on Friday.

"Highly classified intercepts illustrate Russian government planning and direction of a multifaceted campaign by Moscow to undermine the integrity of the American political system," NBC quotes the source  saying. “What you will see is that there were evolving goals over time. At the end, they were trying to elect Trump,” the source adds.

A declassified version of the report is expected to be released to the public on Friday.

NBC’s story came after the Washington Post first reported details from the review.

On the surface, Trump's unwillingness to bury the hatchett with the intelligence services just ahead of the Russian hack briefing, suggests that he will not back off his criticism of the US narrative that Russia is behind the "hacking of the election", and confirms that Trump has every intention of continuing his crackd down on media reports, especially when it comes to what he believes are strategic leaks meant to direct the public narrative ahead of time, as the WaPo did last night.

We eagerly look forward to Trump comments, either on Twitter or elsewhere, following today's meeting.

The leak is obvious.  It's OBAMA.  He didn't care when Clinton did it and he puts out national secrets anytime he thinks it will make him look good.

Mr Trump?

Mockingbird appears to be alive and well at home as well as abroad.

How about shutting that little dept at Langley down as first order of business?

I'm sure there are Russians who would be pleased that Hillary lost, and naturally, that Trump won. However, how many elections has the US directly influenced? How many democratically elected leaders has the US overthrown? 

I am ashamed at the level of what passes for intelligent news reporting and political discussion in my country.

US overthrow of democratically elected leaders, to name a few:

Iran, 1953

And about that report?    NBFD…

The report is all bullshit anyway.

My tweet back (guaranteed he will get one) would be:

@JoeBiden: No son of this particular President will gain a seat on a foreign energy board as a clear abuse of this position.

A congressional investigation started by Tweet.  Innovative.

 

I can't wait until he starts issuing military orders by Twitter.

Of course the Russians were celebrating Trump's victory. I was celebrating, too. Does this mean I also hacked the elections?

Well, if it's short and sweet, might actually work. Maybe something like:

"Surround the Langley facility with tanks, fire if necessary, and escort all personnel within to prison pending trial."

Yep, done in only 118 characters. No problem.

Just kidding, of course. Of course. :)

Ok, so cut the shit and say "Russia did it".

 

Now, what the fuck is "it"?

 

THE RUSSAINS EXPOSED THE CORRUPTION, LAWLESSNESS AND DISDAIN FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY!

 

..and once the AMERICAN PEOPLE KNEW THE TRUTH, THEY SOUNDLY REJECTED HILLARY AND ALL OF HER CORRUPT/EVIL CO-CONSPIRATORS!

 

The Ameican people owe "The Russians" a huge "THANK YOU"!

If a hacker had exposed the location of the Lindberg baby, would "they" be hell-bent on prosecuting the hacker?

"If a hacker had exposed the location of the Lindberg baby, would "they" be hell-bent on prosecuting the hacker?'

in the case of the USSA, yes they would! Note the war on Whistle blowers. I think any whistle blower that came forward ended up being prosecuted, blackballed or imprisoned.

When I was younger, reporting on embedded corruption within a political party was called "Journalism" ...  Now it seems it's called "Interference" ... WTF

Way beyond yellow journalism now ... We are into the realm of, "The Twilight Zone" which would be an improvement.

"You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future, not a future that will be but one that might be. This is not a new world, it is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super-states that preceded it, it has one iron rule: logic is an enemy and truth is a menace. This is Mr. Romney Wordsworth, in his last forty-eight hours on Earth. He's a citizen of the State but will soon have to be eliminated, because he's built out of flesh and because he has a mind. Mr. Romney Wordsworth, who will draw his last breaths in The Twilight Zone." Now THESE are story's .. worthy of contemplation.

If Putin was involved, he's owed a debt of gratitude.

hey,  remeber all the outrage from the CIA and the other 16 "intelligence" agencies,  and from the state-run media, and from the state-run "entertainment industry,  and from all the leftist kooks after the '08 and' 12 elections and even the '16 election when we found out about the billions of dollars from Saudi Arabia and other musloids outside the USA that were contributed to o-traitor and Hitlery? 

remember all that outrage when the musloid cultists world-wide celebrated o-scumbag's victories? 

yeah,  I don't recall thag ever happening either,  bitchez. 

yet Americans who voted for Trump or more likely voted against Hitlery are supposed to feel bad or outraged because our decent,  Christian Russian counterparts are glad that Trump won? 

and are we supposed to have a problem with finding out through wikileaks all the scumbag bullshit Hitlery and the left were up to regardless of who hacked those accounts? 

i don't fucking think so. 

no matter who leaked out all that data it still doesnt make any of it less true,  does it? 

fuck the Dems or anyone else,  right or left,  who gets exposed for all their crimes and treason!   they deserve it.  and they should have fair trials for their crimes and should do the time as well if/when convicted. 

its the typical insanity and hypocrisy of mainly the leftists who can sit there and bitch about so-called hacking while deliberately or delusionally ignoring the fact thag it was having the actual truth about them exposed to the public is what swayed a certain percentage of voters to vote for Trump.

Give a call if you need help.  There's probably about 30 million people pulling the axeheads off of the handle, already.  Just call, Sir.  It's was Trump who I elected, I DID NOT ELECT THE REPUBLICANS>>>>>>>>>   FUCK YOU REPUBLICANS JUST LIKE DEMOCRASTS FUCK YOU ALL.

We elected TRUMP to flush the turds out of Shitsville!

Wrong.  They may be a part of the deep state, but if they get called out by name and hounded without mercy, they will relent.  As politicians, their first loyalty is to themselves and getting re-elected.  If Trump maintains his popularity with the masses and continues to expose corruption and evil, he will have the power to ruin individual careers.  His Twitter account is the one thing they can't get around.  He has more followers than any of the MSM stations, and his audience is growing right along with the controversy.  It is a complicated issue, too, as this ability to engage with the public anytime he wants erodes importance of the MSM and has already cut into their ad revenue.  Trump is simply very bad news for the establishment.  Far from laughing at Trump, they are scared shitless of being "tweeted a new one", as another ZHer posted recently.

It's very telling that both Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren wil be moving into what are essentially "talk" shows at their new MSM TV stations.  Trump is successfully making it very difficult for these "reporters" and the MSM to manipulate the news any longer.    LOL

~"NBC cited “a senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge” of the intel report that was delivered to President Obama on Thursday and is scheduled to be delivered to Trump on Friday."~

Nothing says "fire all them bastards" like a leaky "senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge".

Nothing says "treason" more than a senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge who has loose lips.

Find the bum and hang him from a yardarm.

"senior U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge who has loose lips."

It's even worse than that, this "official" is out to "help" his/hers preferred political party...find this person and prosecute them Mr. Trump!

Indeed, because, so far, they keep managing the show.

With all this screaming about Russian hacking, they keep the real issue (the contents of the leaked emails) skilfully out of the limelight.

It's amazing how they manage to draw the attention away from the contents and keep it focused on non-issues like "who did it?".

Anyway, in earlier days, the one "who did it" would be praised as a whistle blower.
