A US official told CNBC on Friday that a photo of an Iranian launchpad that President Donald Trump tweeted out in the afternoon came from an intelligence briefing Trump received earlier in the day.
Shortly after Trump made his statement, military and national-security experts began sounding the alarm that the president likely tweeted out classified intelligence.
Insider reached out to the White House and the National Security Council and asked for confirmation that the photo was of the Iranian launchpad, which the classification level of the photo was, and whether it was taken inside a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF), at which photos are not permitted.
Neither immediately responded to the request for comment.
Lol, how is it that we can't just have a normal week where nothing stupid happens?
"The Committee can only conclude, based on this remarkable confluence of factors, that the serious misconduct at issue involves the President of the United States and/or other senior White House or Administration officials."
timeline boiled down-
aug 12- a whistleblower from within our intelligence community files a complaint. sometime thereafter the ic inspector general found the complaint legitimate and "urgent".
aug 26- the ic inspector general tells the crooked dni about the whistleblower complaint.
from then on, the dni tries to hide the complaint from congress/the 'murrican public, forcing schifty schiff to issue the subpoena on sept 10.
"september 13, schiff received a letter from Maguire declining schiff's request, saying the complaint involves confidentially and potentially privileged communications by persons outside the intelligence community.
