Trump's outburst on FBI for "leakers"

Trump's outburst on FBI for "leakers" U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday attacked the Federal Bureau of Investigation via his Twitter account.

He accused the agency of being unable to stop people from giving national security information to the media and calling for such leakers to be found "now."

"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," Trump tweeted.

Trump's comments, in a series of tweets, 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 U.S. 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.

White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts, officials said.
