Trump Condemns Leaks To News Media in Twitter Flurry

Source: New York Times,

WASHINGTON President Trump lashed out at the nations intelligence agencies again on Wednesday, accusing them of illegally leaking information to the news media, on a day of fresh disclosures about his dealings with Russia during and after the presidential campaign.

In a fusillade of angry, early-morning tweets, Mr. Trump revived his charge that the allegations of a Russian connection were nothing more than a Democratic conspiracy, fed to a receptive news media to distract from the mistakes made by Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clintons losing campaign, he posted on Twitter shortly after 7 a.m.

Minutes later, he added, Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?). Just like Russia

The Times on Wednesday disclosed broader contacts between Russian intelligence officials and people with ties to the Trump campaign and Mr. Trump’s business empire during and after the campaign

I got to say this one sentence is beyond anything I could have imagined. Especially the word, "non-sense"

"This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clintons losing campaign,"

1. Republicans have already framed this as a leak problem, not a dealings-with-Russia problem.

Keep hammering Russia.

20. All of a sudden he's worried about leaks (to US press, not the Russians, of course).

We citizens have the right to know how government is being conducted.

3. It's the Obama people still on the job who are to blame.

Heard on talk radio this morning. (WMAL in DC, a RW station. I was tuning past it to find "traffic and weather on the eights."

I don't think the state keeps track of that.

10. You just explained the problem here, and the solution

Donald Trump..just indicted himself with that one sentence.....For clarity..How could a sitting President of the United States blame calls to Russia by his administration on an election that was over 2 months ago?

13. Oh, shut up you insufferable blowhard.

Go find a closet to sit in and whine because no one wants to hear it anymore.

Your father didn't love you. Your children don't like you. Your wife and ex-wives would rather be touched by gonorrhea than by you.
Gonorrhea can be cured and you're fatal, infecting everything you touch and stripping it of all life.

So go grab your pacifier and blanket and run off to a dark corner and cry your little eyes out, using your tiny little hands to brush the tears away.

You've got a mouth that looks like an anal sphincter, which makes sense since the only thing that comes out of it is shit.

You're a laughingstock, a buffoon, and an oaf.

No one respects you. No one admires you.

You are a loser.

You are that annoying little fly that meets its end in plastic mesh. Swat! Swat! Swat!

Now shoo! Be gone!

16. I thought he LOVED leaks! How long is he going to claim his own malfeasance ....

...is somehow about HILLARY?

HILLARY is not responsible for Flynn's behavior. Or Trump's or Manafort's or Bannon's or Sessions'...or...well you see what I mean.

Men BLAMING WOMEN for male behavior is age-old bullshit. Nobody should buy that anymore.

These guys are responsible for their OWN behavior and for the consequences.

The adults in the room will see that they are.
