Trump Tweets That Intelligence Briefing on ‘So-Called Russian Hacking’ Was ‘Delayed Until Friday’

Following his tweet this evening that he would finally hold a long-awaited news conference on January 11th, President-elect Donald Trump also used the social media platform to send out some more info on his schedule.

Trump stated last week, after President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Russia over allegations they directed hacking to influence the election, that he would meet with the heads of the intelligence agencies to be briefed on the situation.

Regarding the issue of this being delayed, there are reports that the briefing was always scheduled for Friday.

Trump has long been a skeptic on Russian’s involvement in hacking, saying the CIA’s assessment that the country tried to influence the election to help Trump was “ridiculous.”
