During an appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show back in January, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer issued a veiled threat to president Trump that has since come to fruition.
With that smug smirk on his face, the Senate Minority Leader issued a threat that the US intelligence agencies could “get back at” president Trump for dismissing the now disproven Russian hacking claims of Democratic Party officials. We have since learned that the hacks actually came from 3 Muslim Brothers that were DNC employees.
After Maddow brought up at Donald Trump Tweet suggesting that the delayed intelligence briefing on Russian hacking was extremely strange, and suggested they needed more time to build a case.
The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

In which Sen. Chuck Schumer responded by issuing the veiled threat that has since played out, putting national security at risk.
“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he is being really dumb to do this.”
Do you believe it’s possible that Chuck Schumer may also be behind the consistent flow of internal leaks from the White House? Comment below.
