President Trump continues his battle with parts of the intelligence community as he now turns his anger and attack towards the FBI.
Donald Trump is turning his fire on the FBI in his growing feud with the intelligence community.
The president took aim at the bureau after reports that officials refused to dispute a New York Times story that said agents had uncovered contact between Russian officials and Trump’s presidential campaign.
Trump blasted the bureau for being “totally unable to stop the national security ‘leakers’ that have permeated our government for a long time.”
The White House request to the FBI — made by chief of staff Reince Priebus to Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — is the second time in two weeks that the White House has reportedly asked an intelligence agency to publicly deny a press report.
