As President Obama drops ever more chaos into the path of Donald Trump's presidency with everything from troop movements to trade disputes, it appears the president-elect had a lot to get off his chest this morning.
It began with some confident crowing about his cabinet appointments and their hearings...
All of my Cabinet nominee are looking good and doing a great job. I want them to be themselves and express their own thoughts, not mine!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2017
But then quickly snapped to the "intelligence" lies and fake news of the media. As The Hill reports, President-elect Donald Trump struck a new blow in his war of words with the intelligence community on Friday, tweeting that the IC “probably” leaked new reports against him “even knowing there is no proof.”
On Tuesday, CNN reported that Trump had been briefed by top intelligence officials that Russia had a dossier on compromising information about him. Hours later, Buzzfeed published the 35-page unverified dossier, which contains multiple known errors.
Unconfirmed reports emerged Thursday that former MI6 agent Christopher Steele had initially begun compiling the dossier at the behest of former Florida governor and Trump GOP primary opponent Jeb Bush, reports Bush’s team strongly denied.

Trump then pivoted to "Guilty as hell" Hillary Clinton (and the forthcoming probe on FBI behavior)...
