So somebody decided to somehow "release" a letter from outgoing President Obama addressed to incoming President Trump.

The "letter" has not been "officially" published, but CNN has it (or do they).

The letter has apparently been "leaked" even though Trump has already shown it to select people.

So CNN is somehow using this as a "bash" ?

I'm sure they have their reasons and fully understand the historical values involved.

Smart Power: White House Leaker Sends Trump’s Inauguration Letter from Obama to Trump-Hating CNN


CNN published on Sunday morning the letter that former President Barack Obama gave to President Donald Trump on the day of his inauguration — but instead of writing it up as a humanizing moment, as its leaker may have intended, the piece from Kevin Liptak just uses the occasion to bash Trump and praise Obama.

The leak of this document occurs 7 months into Trump’s presidency, whereas the inauguration letters from outgoing Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton stayed private for eight and 16 years, respectively. ABC News published those letters days before Trump’s inauguration, obtaining them from the National Archives and Records Administration.

Yet CNN acknowledges that it did not obtain the Obama-Trump letter through official channels: “Obama, when writing the letter, didn’t disclose the content even to his closest aides,” Liptak writes. “Since then, however, Trump has shown the letter to visitors in the Oval Office or his private White House residence. CNN obtained a copy from someone Trump showed it to.”

They still haven't figured out who the leaker(s) are? Come on. I mean at the rate of people fleeing the whitehouse you'd figure the list of suspects would narrow significantly?

As for the letter, meh. I mean Trump has shown them to others already. No biggy.

Maybe that guy was pretending to be a leaker and Trump is triggering CNN once again.

Only Breitbart speculates the document was leaked. CNN doesn't claim it was "leaked". I don't see anything that resembles "bashing" Trump in the CNN article either.

Lies! All lies!

I have sources who have given me what they say is the real letter written by Obama.


Dear Mister Butt-Head,

You suck. Really. The rules say I have to write you a letter, but no one said what has to be in it.

I licked everything in the Lincoln Bedroom, so it's officially mine.

I also clogged the Oval Office toilet. Clean up MY messes, will you? Well Bitch, you can start in the bathroom. Hahahaha.

I also reprogrammed all the TV's in the White House to play nothing but CNN. HA! Now you get to spend a week on hold waiting for Comcast Customer Support!

Loser.

Signed, President-For-Life,

King Barak Obama

Did he leave them alone with it so they could snap a picture?

Odd too is this from the CNN person:


"CNN obtained a copy from someone Trump showed it to.”


How does somebody "get a copy" if they only "saw" it ?

"Here you go - here is a letter from Obama to me, have a read and tell me what you think. By the way, here is a photocopy of the letter - now, whatever you do, please don't show anyone or tell anyone I've given you this photocopy and for gods sake, don't give it to CNN"

The leaker must be Donald Trump - this is the only explanation.

One of these days, someone is going to leak some very top sensitive information to the press and they're going to run with it and get their arses in one serious bind. I wanna see heads roll!

Isn't it funny how they treated the last PoTUS like a savior and this one like the devil himself?

Maybe THATs the plan. Altered copy... one word out of place. Instant identity of the leaker.

You're FIRED!

The man can't get his own work done because he's too busy trying to undo everything Obama did.

Why would the press get in trouble?
The leaker should be punished.
The press wouldn't be in trouble at all. Sorry no head rolling today.

I bet the Letter is telling Trump that he gave Hillary a Secret Pardon. I mean Trump bitches about Hillary all the time and does nothing about it. Unless of course the Letter said Obama gave her a Pardon.
