FBI, CIA Directors and Director of National Intelligence to Brief Trump on Russia Friday

FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper intend to meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Friday to discuss intelligence information regarding potential Russian interference with the U.S. election, according to Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer.

“We have scheduled that meeting for Friday in New York this week and I can confirm that CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey and Director of National Intelligence Clapper intend to be present,” Spicer told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday morning.

Trump requested the intelligence briefing after President Obama ordered an investigation following reports of Russia hacking and possibly influencing the election. Intelligence officials requested pushing the meeting until later this week once the report is finalized.

On Tuesday, Trump posted on Twitter that it was strange that the briefing was postponed until Friday.
