FLASHBACK – Schumer: Intelligence Community May ‘Get Back At’ Trump For Tweet (Video)
(Daily Caller) Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer suggested Tuesday night that U.S. intelligence agencies could “get back at” President-elect Donald Trump after he questioned the legitimacy of the intelligence community’s probe into Russian involvement in the hacking of Democratic party officials.
Appearing on “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Schumer said, “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.”
“What do you think the intelligence community would do if they were motivated to?” Maddow asked.
“I don’t know, but from what I am told, they are very upset with how he has treated them and talked about them,” Schumer replied.
