Donald Trump demands probe of NBC over Russian hacking intel leak

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.

    It’s about time we have a president who is willing to confront others in DC about their actions rather than allowing wrong doing to continue and creating more conflict between government agencies based on those who support the president and those who don’t.

    About time somebody goes after the corrupt media. Now to hold them accountable for all their false narratives that caused innocent people to be harmed physically or monetarily while they fomented rioting and lawlessness. Sue them into oblivion – where their reputation already is.

  • goldie

    Wow! This man has not ceased to impress me – he can see to the bottom of things and wastes no time in accomplishing them. God works in mysterious ways, and it appears to me He is using Mr. Trump as an answer to our prayers. Keep them going!

    MASONS AND ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTITIES IT IS PAST TIME TO QUIT PLAY ACTING AND START WORKING TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY, LIKE MASONS DID THE FIRST 60 YEARS. BEFORE MUSLIMS TAKE US OVER AND STOP US HERE.

    I AM A 32 DEGREE MASON, WITH NEARLY 60 YEARS OF SERVICE AND I CAN TAKE A STAND. A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53. I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT JOHNSON’S TAX EXAMPTION CLAUSE DID FOR THIS COUNTRY.

    IF OUR FIRST PRESIDENT, GEORGE WASHINGTON A MASTER OF HIS LODGE TOOK A STAND, SO CAN YOU AND IF YOU DO NOT, YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY COUNTRY. HE DID NOT HIDE.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MOOSE, ELKS,AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE RUNNING AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE MOST QUALIFIED.

    TRUMP HAS SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH WHAT THE TAX EXAMPT DEAL THAT JOHNSON PUT ON, KEEPING TAX EXEMPT ENTITIES FROM TALKING POLITICS.

    WE MUST FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY OR LOSE IT, THE MUSLIMS ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT OVER AND THE BIASED MEDIA AND POLITICIANS ARE TOO STUPID TO TELL THE PUBLIC.

    IF WE DO NOT STICK TOGETHER AS A UNIT, THEN WE ARE DONE FOR. THE AMISH PEOPLE VOTED AS A UNIT FOR TRUMP AND GAVE HIM PA., OH., MICH., IOWA, FLA., NEARLY VA., AND HELPED IN IND. THIS SHOW WHAT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE CAN DO WHEN WE STICK TOGETHER.

    GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015. WE CAN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING.

    MASONS HAD 14 PRESIDENTS AND 18 VICE PRESIDENTS, THE FIRST 100 YEARS AND WE DESIGNED WASHINGTON, DC. BUT BECAUSE OF A PLAN BY JOHNSON TO TAKE AWAY OUR TAX EXAMPTION WE ARE NOT ACTIVE IN POLITICS.

    TRUMP SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH THE ABOVE LAW.

    I VOTED FOR TRUMP. IF YOU GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, YOU WILL KNOW WHY.

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. LET US HOPE AND PRAY TRUMP ENFORCES THIS LAW.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    GRAND LODGE IN WASHINGTON, AND GRAND LODGES IN EACH STATE HAD BETTER WAKE UP OR WE WILL LOSE ALL PRIVELAGES IF THERE IS A MUSLIM TAKE OVER AND SO WILL ALL TAX EXAMPTS.

    BELIEVERS IN CHRIST STICK TOGETHER, THIS IS WHAT MILLIONS AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP. THERE COULD BE 20 MILLION AMISH IN THIS COUNTRY.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, IOWA AND HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP BY HILLARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SOROS, AND THE BIASED MEDIA AT A TRY FOR A MUSLIM TAKEOVER, IF NOT, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMS. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

  • justinwachin

    Mr. Trump isn’t likely to be successful on his request. He doesn’t need to be. The point is the Obama administration was as sloppy in handling classified information as Hillary Clinton. The Obama administration is incompetent and corrupt.

    It’s likely we will eventually learn this was another scam concocted by the Obama administration and the Democrat National Committee to try to delegitimize Donald Trump.

    This morning the Today Show ran a video clip of President Obama complaining that it was disappointing that Trump supporters were siding with Russia rather than our nation’s own intelligence reports. The simple fact is Barack Hussein Obama can’t be trusted. His entire time in office has been spent on political calculations to empower his administration while taking away our freedom and wealth. Before becoming president, Obama was a professional troublemaker. We are likely to find in a few months that this was another scam straight from the Democrat Party’s dirty tricks handbook. Jan. 20 can’t arrive soon enough.

      NOT QUICKLY ENOUGH!!

      At this time the Russian’s have done a LOT LESS damage to this country than Obama! Good comment!

  • Climax

    This is easy, cut NBC’s access to all government and White House briefings until they fess up who the leak is.

    • The Redhawk

      OMG Imagine how WET Mathews pants will get and how “STRAIGHT” it might Turn MADCOW…………….how babbly Mika can get ….and how Utterly Stupid LAUER can show to REALLY BE! and Who will go on Meet the Press to drool???

  • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

    the bigger question, is why or how was hacking successful on hillary’s and dnc servers and the attempts to hack rnc servers unsuccessful?
    and now the democrats are all angry, because they got caught with their hands in the dirty deeds cookie jars.

    • Climax

      If they didn’t want to get caught then they shouldn’t have done all the extremely dirty, unethical to illegal actions they have done.

      • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

        fear of getting caught, is why they did not use government servers.
        they thought they were invincible, having the liberal media covering their buts. giving them, a false sense of security and complacency.
        i, worked in top secret security for 5 years. even with security cameras in plain sight, they are careful at first. but become so accustomed to their presence, they just totally ignore their presence. and that’s when you find out, what they are really like.

        • Climax

          Having worked with even higher security levels for over 17 years, I agree. The part I do not understand there is the hard and fast actions that immediately happen if anyone breaks protocol and security compliance. This has not happened to these individuals and the question is why.

          • Pete

            Obama is still the president for another 12 days and some few hours. That is why no acation has been taken to prosecute.

          • Climax

            yup

          • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

            an illegal act of corruption giving privileged inequality to the self stuck up.
            and you and i know, what would of happened to us if we did even close to what they did.

  • Son Shine

    Who hacked what?
    We have already forgotten Hillary’s server was wide open for hackers and Huma Abadin had access to Hillary’s server and could have sent all information to Huma’s mother in Sadia Arabia (Muslam Beotherhood) just by hitting FORWARD.
    And another thing, these last men let go from Gitmo went to Sadia Arabia. Probably living with Huma’s Mom. Just another circle of friends of OBAMA.

    • justinwachin

      Good point. Thanks for making sure this didn’t get missed from the discussion. Maybe President Obama should be more worried about all the sensitive information that was taken thanks to Hillary and Huma’s sloppy handling of sensitive information.

      • Son Shine

        And Hillary’s running for NY Mayor. These people are so stupid. They just don’t see wrong. Anything goes. Money and power!!!!

        • Rodney Steward

          And corruption!!!

  • Shelly Shannon

    Go Trump! Drain that swamp. Question is…when are these corrupt people going to learn?

    • The Redhawk

      LEARN??? NEVER
