In a recently released statement, the White House defended itself from a sabotage claim made by President-elect Donald J. Trump. The Obama team stated that Trump was already informed that his intelligence briefing was scheduled for Friday, January 6, 2017. However, Trump on his Twitter account this morning stated that he found the delay "Very Strange."

Press waiting for first news briefing

In light of his recent tweet, the press association is hoping that the President-elect will honor his commitment to hold his first news conference that is scheduled for January 11, 2017.

About a week ago, Donald Trump stated that the country should move beyond the Russian election hack. However, on New Year's Eve, Trump promised the American people that he would reveal by Tuesday or Wednesday after the New Year's holiday very classified information about the Russian hack. His claim; the US intelligence and the Obama administration had concealed pertinent information from the general public.

Now, the US nation is eagerly awaiting the impending breakthrough announcement that the President-elect stated he would release by this Wednesday. With his upcoming statement, Trump is signaling that the Intelligence Committee and the Obama administration are still working on getting their story straight, hence this caused the delay in his scheduled intelligence briefing on Friday, January 6.

White House responds to sabotage claim

Shortly after posting his tweet about the Intelligence Committee delayed briefing, the White House released a statement contradicting the President-elect sabotage claim.

The Obama administration declared that Trump's Intelligence Briefing was previously scheduled for January 6, 2017.

Notably, the very outspoken Donald J. Trump has publicly criticized the investigators in the Intelligence Committee on several occasions. He has dismissed intelligence gathered by the FBI and CIA into the November 8, 2016, election that helped him secure the highest job in the United States of America.

With no political experience, the astute billionaire fought a bruising battle on the campaign trail and came out the victor against the expected First Female US President' Hillary Rodham Clinton of the Democrat Party.
