Could the Dems actually be trying to literally terrorize Trump into submission?
Apparently, based on this excerpt from the Washington Examiner that may very well be the case.
The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being “really dumb” for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his “so-called” briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case.
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been delayed.
“So, even for a practical supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this,” he added.
Trump has repeatedly expressed skepticism about the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia was in all likelihood involved in a hacking plot aimed at interfering in the election.
