Trump Continues Castigating 'Fake News', Will Launch Own Hacking Investigation
Three new totally Trumpifying tweets have emerged from the soon-to-be commander-in-chief.
In them, Trump makes clear that the allegations made against him in latest "intel report" published by Buzzfeed/CNN are totally groundless, and that Russia has denied holding any information which could be used to blackmail Mr. Trump.
It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)January 13, 2017
Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans - FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists. Probably...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)January 13, 2017
released by "Intelligence" even knowing there is no proof, and never will be. My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)January 13, 2017
Also interesting is Trump's launching of his own investigation into alleged hacking against the country - something he also announced at his Wednesday press conference. 90 days is virtually an eternity politically. This may be a way for him to take some wind out of his opponents sails without being forced to take punitive action against Russia early in his administration.
