Heilemann: If Trump Continues to Doubt Hacking After Intel Briefing, It’ll Be the First Crisis of His Presidency

‘If he goes down that path, it will be an unprecedented moment’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HEILEMANN: "And the question is going to be does he now come into line with everyone else and say, okay, I’m now convinced. Or does he continue to express the doubts that he has expressed before he had the briefing? If he goes down that path, it will be an unprecedented moment. It will throw the credibility of the intelligence agencies, their relationship with trump will be in an unprecedentedly horrible place and it will raise the questions that we are asking now about what is really going on with him and Vladimir Putin. It will put them in such stark relief that it will be, I think, about what is really going on with him and Vladimir Putin. It will put them in such stark relief that it will be, I think, like the first really significant political crisis of his presidency even though he is not president yet."
