JUST IN: Clinton Campaign Requested an Intelligence Briefing on Trump’s Presidency

Remember when it was Hillary Clinton who thought it was a “threat to democracy” that Trump wouldn’t accept the results of the election if he lost? Guess whose still not over losing now? Hillary, of course.

In its first show of public support for efforts questioning the legitimacy of Trump’s victory, Hillary Clinton’s campaign said it is supporting a request by members of the Electoral College for an intelligence briefing on foreign intervention in the presidential election.

“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security,” Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta said in a statement on Monday. “Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.”

Here’s more, courtesy of the Conservative Post:

Mediaite reported that this came hours after 10 electors out of 538 requested an intelligence briefing on the conclusion from federal agencies that Russia was behind the DNC hack in an effort to help Trump.

It was then that Podesta released a statement on the matter.

The CIA report in question that claimed to have found evidence of Russian hacking wasn’t made after any kind of new information came in that led them to that conclusion. While they claim to have found evidence of Russian interference in our election, the FBI completely disagrees.

Considering that it was the FBI that left Hillary Clinton off the hook TWICE during their investigation into their emails, they aren’t exactly in the tank for Trump. It’s more likely that it’s the CIA playing politics in this case, and it’s going to go no where.

What’s the worst case scenario here? That we learned that Russia supported the candidate who didn’t want to go to war with Russia? What a surprise!
