Trump says Russia report 'one last shot at me' from Intel community
CNN Politics.com ^ | January 11, 2017 | David Wright

President-elect Donald Trump lashed out at new reporting on allegations about his ties to Russia in a series of tweets-Wednesday, accusing the intelligence community of leaking information to the public and asking, "are we living in Nazi Germany?"

I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! — "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?" he added. Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017

Trump's tweets came in response ... CNN reported, ... classified documents presented to President Obama and Trump that included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal-financial information about Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings.

Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian-efforts to compromise him. After Russia denied having any such information -- Putin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov ..."a clear attempt to harm our bilateral relationship" and a "witch hunt" -- Trump took to social media to insist that Russia had no undue influence over him.

Trump wrote on Twitter, "Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE." Very unfair!" Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE." Very unfair! —- "Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017

Trump's smack-down of CNN during the press conference was beautiful. He refused to take a question from a CNN news reporter saying and pointing at the mutt-reporter, "No, you are fake news."

Without Trump, we would have had another Designated Loser amnesty candidate, just like every election since the last amnesty.

Yeb! was next in line.

I heard that! And much of the press conference.

Once again, a democrat scheme ("fake news") has come back to bite them in the cheeks. Poetic justice.

CNN are liars says former CNN reporter

“I saw first-hand that these regime claims were lies, and I couldn’t believe CNN was making me put what I knew to be government lies into my reporting.” - Amber Lyon

The Amber Lyon story is a (2012) story within in a series of articles that expose the total Joseph Goebbels like censorship rampant in mainstream media today.

The NY Times basically just regurgitates whatever government officials tell them.

An NPR reporter covering D.C. had to leave and do her own thing out of frustration.

This is precisely why alternative media sites have become the more credible sources of news.

They may provide the only outlets left for genuine journalism; that’s pathetic.

The absurdity continues:

First it was the "sex scandals" BTW where did they go?

Then it was the "Trump university scandal" BTW where did it go?

Then it was he doesn't have a chance the hildabeast has a 98% chance of winning

Then it was the hildabeast won the popular vote (in kalifornia)

Then it was the recounts

Then it was unfaithful electors

Then it was protest in the House on election confirmation day

Now it is the Russians are behind all this

They will try to ruin inauguration day

What will the next absurd effort be. Did he ever kick a puppy?

We can plainly see the socialists never give up despite revealing themselves to be total a$$hats doing it.

If this had been done to Obama everyone would be screaming treason.

I have never seen politics like this and it is scary. There is an actual war going on in Washington behind the scenes. There is a reason people have tried so hard to bring Trump down....and there are only a few options left for that side.

The problem with the way the globalist have acted is that now there is no reason to let them quietly move to the side and live out their lives in obscurity... as they are going to be a constant danger to Trump and the USA. They will have to be dealt with.

Actually that is probably the best thing that will have been accomplished with this latest fiasco....they have sealed their fate and will be dealt with if Trump makes into office.

That is what the whole Russia did it con is about to try and prevent a house cleaning from the incompetent bureaucrats in the intel agencies. They are hoping he won’t dare touch them now because he would be doing Russia’s bidding. I suspect they are quite wrong and the hammer is about to fall on some spooks who love themselves and their agencies more than the country.

The non-political spooks clearly chose not to engage the political hacks using their agencies or agreed to go along with this con job. Speaks volumes.
