Trump feuds with intelligence community over Russian hacking

Buck Sexton

Joining Buck Sexton is John Schindler, a national security columnist for the New York Observer, to discuss Trump's growing conflict with the intelligence community. They begin by breaking down the proven Russian involvement in the DNC hack, then turn their attention to a Washington Post article which reported that the CIA has reached a consensus that the Kremlin specifically tried to help Trump win the election.

"You don't attack the IC (Intelligence Community) and basically make fun of them as Trump has done without expecting some kind of push-back. It's incredibly naive," John says.

John maintains that Russia's involvement has been established and is no longer up for debate: "I think it's a bit of a tangent to suggest, 'Oh, the intelligence community isn't sure about what happened.' No, they're sure about what happened. It's the motivation that's hard to know. ... I'm all in favor of investigation, I'm not in favor of investigation that becomes a partisan puppet show."

Listen live to The Buck Sexton Show weekdays 12–3pm ET on TheBlaze Radio Network.
