Trump said the intelligence community’s action was “disgraceful and was something Nazi Germany would have done and will do.”
Trump also said that he would not divest his business or turn it over to a blind trust. He said the business would be turned over to his two oldest sons.
In addition to this, Sen. Corey Booker testified against AG nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions and was joined by civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis in confirmation hearings today.
There was little or no spillover on the national news scene today from President Barrack Obama’s farewell address held at Chicago’s McCormick Place last night. Obama’s name came up today when Edward Snowden asked that he pardon Chelsea Manning.
