Trump Destroys Mainstream Media Lies With Two Tweets


In two simple tweets, Donald Trump has put the mainstream media in their place.

They’re claiming he and Julian Assange are an “unlikely pair” working together to sow doubts about Russian hacking.

Here’s how the New York Times put it:

Just a year ago, they might have seemed the oddest of couples. But now President-elect Donald J. Trump and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, have formed a united front against the conclusion of American intelligence agencies that Russian intelligence used hacked emails to interfere in the presidential election.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is still waiting on his (delayed) briefing from the Intelligence Community on Russian involvement.

In fact, Trump might face some pushback even after receiving his intelligence report, The Daily Caller reports.

The President-Elect has expressed an interest in paring back headquarters at the Virginia-based CIA and to cut the office of the Director of National Intelligence altogether. The DNI was established after 9/11 to better coordinate intelligence sharing among the country’s 17 difference spy agencies.

“The view from the Trump team is the intelligence world [is] becoming completely politicized,” an anonymous official with alleged knowledge of Trump’s plans told The Wall Street Journal. He continued, “They all need to be slimmed down. The focus will be on restructuring the agencies and how they interact.”

One of the main drivers behind Trump’s restructuring plan is his pick for National Security Advisor. Ret. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is a proponent of sending senior intelligence officers into foreign outposts and “continually rotating intelligence analysts to gain them more exposure.”

Any restructuring of the intelligence community will need the support of Congress. The Office of Director of National Intelligence was created in 2004 by Congress. The head of that agency reports directly to the President.
