With all of the nonsense flying around about the Russian hack, President-elect Trump is ready to shed some light on it.
President-elect Donald Trump recently announced that he knows a great deal about the Russian hacking episode and will be announcing it to the American public soon.

Trump is slated to receive a special intelligence briefing regarding the possibility of Russian involvement, but he seems to believe Julian Assange over U.S. intelligence officials.
No wonder, Assange is recognized as the leader in hacking activities across the world and was the main force behind the publication of the leaked emails in the first place. Assange actually said a 14-year-old would have been able to hack John Podesta’s email. He also said that the Wikileaks source for these and other Clinton-related emails was “not a state party” when he was interviewed by Fox News.
Moreover, Assange said those who accuse Russia of election interference are simply seeking to “delegitimize” Trump’s win, which is something the president-elect and vice president-elect have been insisting as well.
Pence spoke with reporters on Capitol Hill and cited a number of “intelligence failures” in the past, including the idea that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in 2003 when they, in fact, did not. Over a decade later, this is still a black mark on the American intelligence community.
Perhaps not surprisingly, those on Capitol Hill took offense to Donald Trump’s open criticism of the CIA’s allegations. “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you,” said Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY). “So even for a practical supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”
What an interesting comment from Schumer. Here I was thinking the intelligence community was beholden to Congress and the president, not the other way around. Sounds like there’s another swamp to be drained!
Paul Ryan joined the dissenting voices, calling Assange nothing more than a “sycophant for Russia” who “steals data.” Ryan added that Trump would probably become “better informed” at the intelligence briefing on Friday. To me, this just means Ryan is nothing more than a career politician who needs to grow a backbone.
The track record of the U.S. intelligence system hasn’t always inspired confidence, but Julian Assange’s seems to be hitting it out of the park. But then again, he doesn’t get paid to cover Obama’s butt!
