The “enemy of the American people” fake press continues to get inside information into his administration, which may or may not be true. Early Friday morning, Trump tore into the  Federal Bureau of Investigations, after CNN, citing the usual “unnamed sources”, reported that the White House tried to urge the FBI to dispute accounts of regular contact between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

“The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security “leakers” that have permeated our government for a long time. They can’t even find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW” he tweeted moments ago.

The tweets come one day after the CNN reported that the FBI rejected a White House request to dispute media accounts of regular contact between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russian intelligence officials.

Andrew McCabe said the story was not true and inflated. FBI Director Jim Comey said the story was not true and Reince Preibus repeated that the story was baloney.

Reince Priebus called it “total baloney”, but CNN came back and said: “Multiple U.S. officials briefed on the matter” told CNN that the agency declined to publicly corroborate White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’s claim that reports of ties between Team Trump and Moscow were “total baloney.”

CNN reported that a law enforcement official and a White House official differing versions of how the communication between the White House and the FBI over the news reports began.

The report of White House communications with the FBI during a pending investigation into Russia’s influence on the 2016 presidential election could raise questions about political influence

A law enforcement source told the media outlet that the discussions began between FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Priebus during a meeting on other topics a day after The Times and CNN published their reports.

A White House official, however, said that McCabe called Priebus to assure him The Times piece overstated the contacts between Trump advisers and Russian officials.

The President took on the possible leaker. Expect more leaks.
