White House defends approach to Federal Bureau of Investigation over Russian Federation reports

White House defends approach to Federal Bureau of Investigation over Russian Federation reports

Hours later, the White House appeared to follow through on that vow, banning The New York Times, CNN, the Los Angeles Times and Politico from a so-called press gaggle that bars TV cameras but is traditionally open to all accredited reporters.

According to The Washington Post, "officials broadly dismissed Trump associates' contacts with Russian Federation as infrequent and inconsequential".

The FBI has not commented on the matter yet.

Bannon's speech at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland evoked the same shades of authoritarianism that have permeated President Donald Trump's time in office, from his outraged tweets to his picks to lead federal agencies. I can assure you and I have been approved to say this - that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that story is not only inaccurate, but it's grossly overstated and it was wrong.

"America is coming back and it's roaring and you can hear it", Trump said.

Mr Trump also said he inherited a "failed health care law" in his address.

"In fact in covering my comments, the dishonest media did not explain that I called the fake news the enemy of the people, the fake news", Trump excalimed.

Although Trump did not provide any specifics on his plans, he said that he would aim to upgrade the military in both offensive and defensive capabilities, with a huge spending request to the Congress. Trump is set to give his nationally televised speech to Congress on Tuesday. The White House denied those stories. "If we had said, 'If you don't do this, if you don't do that, ' that's pressure".

In 1997, a group it co-founded, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, won the Nobel Peace Prize. The Israeli media often covers these reports.

A White House official initially claimed that McCabe reached out to them noting that the New York Times story was false, but later backtracked that statement claiming that Priebus did initiate the conversation.

Accusations against Trump and his cohorts have come from news reports based on unnamed government sources.

Jack Langer, a spokesman for California congressman Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, said the White House asked Mr Nunes to speak to one reporter.

"It's going to get worse every day for the media", Bannon said, insisting that the "corporatist" media would continue to see Trump pursue exactly the sort of economic nationalism that journalism allegedly despises.

As the Associated Press reported, "Members of Trump's White House team regularly demand anonymity when talking to reporters".

JOHN YANG: Bannon said the president's attitude is full steam ahead.

The three then went on for about 30 minutes, prefacing almost every answer with a jab at the "opposition party" in the back of the room - the media is fake because it simply "doesn't get it", or makes things up in a vast conspiracy to cause the downfall of the Twitterer-in-chief.
