Intelligence chiefs last week presented America's incoming 45th president, as well as outgoing President Barack Obama, with a two-page synopsis according to CNN and The New York Times, who cited multiple unnamed US officials with direct knowledge of the meeting.

The Community Organizer and his psychophants are working overtime to make the Trump transition as difficult as possible.

I believe things will start to settle down when the "fake news" cycle dries up, and the only thing left to report will be the truth. Trump/Pence!
