FLASHBACK: Schumer Warned Trump in January Over Deep-State Revenge

Senator Schumer told Trump before his inauguration that the intel community was out to get him, cautioning the President-elect to avoid a fight with the deep-state and that “they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”Schumer’s warning came after Donald Trump made national headlines, harshly criticizing outgoing CIA chief John Brennan in a series of tweets.

“Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.” Oh really, couldn’t do much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?” wrote Trump.

Speaking with Rachel Maddow in early January, the New York Senator warned then President-elect Trump to avoid a fight with the CIA and other intelligence agencies, adding they could always strike back.

“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told Maddow. “So, even for a practical supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”
