White House press secretary Josh Earnest refused to answer why intelligence reports about Russia's supposed interference in the 2016 election were leaked to NBC shortly before President-elect Trump tweeted a demand for a congressional investigation into the leak.
"I can't speak to the inner workings of the intelligence community, particularly as it relates to the compiling of this specific report,"  Earnest said today about the report President Obama has already reviewed on alleged Russian cyberactivity. Trump was to be given that report today from intelligence officials. "For questions about how the intelligence community has handled specific pieces of information, you should go talk to them about that."
Trump has expressed displeasure that NBC had been given details about the report before he was to receive them from intelligence officials. Obama commissioned the report in the wake of a series of allegations that Russia had interfered in the presidential election. It is to be released in an unclassified form later today.
