Trump puts the FBI on his low-life leaker list

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.


What will Trump do to get the FBI to play along? Maybe it’s time to put them in the freezer where he dropped the whole State Department when Trump suspected them of leaks. Or maybe it’s time for more of “his people.”

Thursday’s request followed an already uncomfortable level of law-enforcement leaning by Reince Priebus.

There seems to be some disagreement on who called who first (that is, somebody here is lying) but the contacts were between White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Priebus wanted the FBI to rebut press stories about constant contact between the Trump campaign team and Russian officials. That request made it to director James Comey.

If Trump can’t count on the FBI to plaster over his activities, who can he count on? Well … Bannon. Priebus. Fox News.
