Trump Launches Fresh Attack On FBI

Donald Trump

Donald Trump has launched a fresh attack on the FBI, claiming it has been giving classified information to media that could have a “devastating effect” on the US.

His comments - delivered on Twitter - came just hours after reports emerged that the White House had asked the agency to publicly deny there were links between the President’s administration and Vladimir Putin’s regime in Russia, reports

The former reality show host said on Twitter: “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 US. FIND NOW.”

Trump has previously attacked the intelligence services over a slew of leaks that have appeared in the media, claiming links between the New York tycoon and members of his team, and Russia.

No hard evidence has been provided of any such links, and Trump has continued to deny the assertions.

His latest outburst on Friday morning (local time) came after CNN reported the FBI had rejected a recent approach from the White House to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Trump’s associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign.

A White House official said the request was only made after the FBI indicated to the White House it did not believe the reporting to be accurate, the channel said.
