On Thursday, the Trump regime violated the separation between the the White House and the law enforcement sphere of the FBI.
The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN.
Frustrated by the agency ‘s refusal to play its role as part of Trump’s propaganda machine, Trump turned his Friday morning tweet storm FBI-ward.
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
The nature of the leaks that have been reaching the media seems to be that Donald Trump and his whole un-merry band are incompetent and in bed with Russia. Which is also the information the world keeps seeing in information that’s not sourced from leaks.
Before the election, Trump counted on the FBI’s friendly injections to give his campaign a boost, including a leak that conveniently silenced the Russia story a week before the election and of course, Comey’s extremely timely assistance. But with Trump—Russia threads unraveling from... All ... Directions … Even the most Trump-friendly branch is unwilling to play ‘nothing to see here.’ Though that hasn’t stopped Republicans in Congress from doing their best to bury the whole story.
