I am trying to create an exchange powershell command to create a dynamic exchange group from members of multiple distribution lists.  Example below

New group that im trying to create (Group G) needs to contain members of group A and B which are also members of group C

Anyone have an idea on how to create a dynamic group with this kind of complexity

this type of dynamic group is not possible

you could create a static group using these parameters and then have a scheduled task that updates the membership
here is the script that you could run to create the initial group membership
Get-DistributionGroupMember groupA | where { foreach($user in Get-DistributionGroupMember groupC) {$g.Name -eq $_.Name }} | ForEach-Object { Add-DistributionGroupMember GroupG -Member $_.Name }

the script to update you would want to clear the membership and readd (easiest) otherwise you would need to detect names to remove and add

If you just want all members of group A and group B to be in a dynamic DL, populate a custom attribute (1-15) on the groups, then define your Dynamic group using the Exchange console, to include Mail enabled groups that contain that custom attribute value. I just tested this in Exchange 2007 EMC.

If you are looking for only a portion of group A and group B, Endital1097's solution looks good.
