President-elect Donald Trump said Friday he’s asking the chairmen of the House and Senate intelligence committees to investigate how NBC got hold of details from what it says is the top secret dossier on Russian interference in the U.S. election.
He issued the call in a Twitter post just minutes before he himself is scheduled to get a briefing on the information.
On Thursday he said someone was playing “politics” by sharing the top secret information with the television network.
“I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it,” Mr. Trump said in his Friday post.
Earlier this week NBC aired a story on the intelligence community’s findings, which were presented first to President Obama and then are being shared later today with Mr. Trump.
The intelligence community’s leaders say they are confident in their assessment that Russian leaders at the highest levels directed a hack that breached email accounts of both the Democratic National Committee and former Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, then had the information provided to WikiLeaks, which released it.
