Trump just openly attacked the FBI for refusing to kill Russia investigation

Syndicated from post here.

President Trump can’t stop embarrassing leaks from reaching the media, and he’s sharing his frustrations with the FBI with his Twitter following.

In an early-morning tirade, Trump blasted his own government and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to prevent leakers from talking to reporters, and urged everyone t the FBI to drop what they’re doing and “FIND NOW.”

The tweets are an obvious response to the story that unearthed on Thursday about the FBI refusing to toe the White House line, when White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus asked the agency to endorse Trump’s views that the question of contact between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials was “total baloney.” According to CNN, the leakers were identified as “multiple U.S. officials briefed on the matter.”

“The New York Times put out an article with no direct sources that said that the Trump campaign had constant contacts with Russian spies, basically, you know, some treasonous type of accusations. We have now all kinds of people looking into this,” Priebus said on Fox News Sunday. “I can assure you and I have been approved to say this — that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that story is not only inaccurate, but it’s grossly overstated and it was wrong. And there’s nothing to it.”

FBI Director James Comey has still not publicly commented on the allegations of the Trump campaign colluding with Russian agents, as the matter is still the subject of an ongoing investigation.
