Fake media prevent Americans from hearing real story

Christy Curtis | 31 May, 2017, 06:34

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held a press conference for the first time since taking a break during Donald Trump's first trip overseas as the president.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017 It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media.

Multiple reports have said Kushner's interactions are a matter of interest in the ongoing FBI probe into interactions between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign - part of a snowballing set of investigations examining finances, possible concealment of information and alleged election collusion.

Some U.S. news reports, citing Trump aides, say the president could soon establish a White House "war room" to deal with the burgeoning number of questions about his administration's links to Russian Federation.

"Whenever you see the words "sources say" in the fake news media, and they don't mention names.it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers".

CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza also said he doesn't believe Kushner was "lone-wolfing" it at the time, but was following orders from his father-in-law or Michael Flynn, who would later be booted as Trump's national security advisor over his ties to Russian Federation.

President Donald Trump is assailing internal leaks as he considers an overhaul of his White House staff and grapples with a burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

President Donald Trump has come out in defence of his son-in-law and senior aide, Jared Kushner, following revelations he is under consideration in the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's connections with Russian officials. The newspaper cited anonymous US officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications.

But Conway downplayed the reports of Kushner's proposals to Russian officials as falling within the realm of ordinary White House work.

"I can not think of any compelling patriotic reason why any American, let alone someone working for the White House, would create secret back-channel communications with the Russians", said former Central Intelligence Agency operative Emily Brandwin.

Mr Trump had earlier taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the "fake news media".

Before the foreign trip, for instance, there had been talk that Spicer would be scaling back his on-camera briefings once Trump returned home-a supposed sign the president was losing confidence in his chief spokesman.

In spite of the Trump administration's efforts to discredit the use of unnamed sources, it's been a common aspect of reporting for a long time. On that topic, Trump tweeted Sunday night: "I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere".

The administration has defended Kushner's meeting a couple of ways, without actually confirming the Post's report about what Kislyak told the Kremlin about the meeting. And the search continues for an Federal Bureau of Investigation director to replace the fired James Comey.
