Reince Priebus Denies FBI Spoke With Anyone Else In White House

Priebus criticized news outlets that rely on anonymous sources, pointing to two stories that he found especially problematic.

Also, Reince is very peeved about leaks, and very very peeved that reporters are using unnamed sources to report on the goings-on atop the Trump tire fire.

When, on Friday night, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to declare the press who report on him the enemy of the American people, it was clear that would be the topic of discussion on the Sunday circuit.

"Who was it that said that, " Wallace shot back.

Priebus pointed to breathless scandal coverage compared to the minimal coverage given to the administration's accomplishments so far. "I think that the problem we've got is that we're talking about bogus stories like the one in the New York Times, that we've had constant contact with Russian officials", Priebus replied. You say that the intelligence community says that there were no contacts between anyone in the Trump campaign - any associate of Mr. Trump - ...with Russian Federation.

"Well, I think you should take it seriously".

The chief of staff also hit out at the media - something US President Donald Trump has done repeatedly over the past few days - stating the media were stirring up trouble where there was none.


Dickerson asked Priebus about whether Trump was serious about calling the news media "the enemy".

Later in the segment, Priebus said, "I don't know why you are going bananas".

'So, no collusion whatsoever between anybody involved with Trump and anybody involved with Russian Federation in the 2016 campaign?' Wallace asked.

Trump said in his news conference Thursday that he was disappointed by how Flynn had treated Pence, but did not believe Flynn had done anything wrong by having the conversations.

Priebus, in an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace, also offered the closest thing to an official timeline for former national security adviser Michael Flynn's firing, who was asked to resign after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about U.S. sanctions before Trump took office.

"Reince, here is the problem, I don't have any problem with you complaining about an individual story", Wallace shot back. "And we don't know of any contacts with Russian agents", Priebus, the only Trump team representative to field questions on the Sunday morning show circuit, added during an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press". We sometimes get it wrong, you guys sometimes get it wrong. "But you don't get to tell us what to do, Reince", Wallace interjected.
