Trump Slams Press Over 'New Intelligence Leak' Against AG Sessions

Trump Slams Press Over 'New Intelligence Leak' Against AG Sessions

We understand how frustrated Mr. Trump is over the mushrooming Russian probe, but focusing all his ire on Mr. Sessions, a valued Cabinet member, seems misplaced. It was one of many topics that appeared to occupy the president's mind as the day broke.

Trump's highlighting his power as president to issue pardons comes on the heels of his legal team's asserting that the question of pardons related to the Russian Federation investigation is "not on the table".

In contrast to President Trump's ongoing criticism of the nation's news media, which he often calls "fake news", former CIA Director John Brennan in his remarks at the Aspen Security Forum on Friday night said a free press is "one of the real foundational pillars" of US democracy and the intelligence community has a responsibility to defend it.

Lawmakers announced a bi-partisan deal Saturday to sanction Russian Federation for its meddling in the election. The committee's chairman, Sen. The bill will come up for a vote Tuesday and is expected to easily pass the House and Senate.

Controversy and contradiction don't just follow Mr. Trump; he invites, invents and incites them on a daily basis. Trump Jr. later released email exchanges concerning the meeting on Twitter, after learning that The New York Times was about to publish them. She turned over thousands of pages of emails to the government, but deleted thousands of others that she said were personal or unrelated to her work as the nation's top diplomat.

In the span of just 48 hours, from Wednesday into Friday, the New York Times and Washington Post reported that Mr. Trump had issued a veiled threat about the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, inquired to White House staff about his latitude for issuing pardons to his staff, his relatives and himself, and publicly lambasted his hand-picked attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for having recused himself from the Russian investigation and therefore allowing the election-meddling probe to proceed.

Trump tweeted: "A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!"

Mr. Trump's biting chastisement of the former Alabama senator, the first of that fraternity to endorse his presidential candidacy, pulled off the hard trick of smearing Mr. Sessions and himself at the same time.

But a Friday report from The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, said Mr. Kislyak spoke with the former Alabama senator about the campaign and reported that USA agents had obtained Mr. Kislyak's communications.

The Justice Department said Sessions stands by his previous assertion that he never had conversations with Russian officials about any type of interference with the election.

In another tweet, Trump continued his campaign to discredit the investigation as based on leaks of information from political enemies aimed at undermining him.
