Trump criticises FBI over leaks

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday criticised the FBI for failing to stop leaks of security information to the media.

“The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security ‘leakers’ that have permeated our government for a long time.

“They can’t even find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S., find now,” Trump wrote on Twitter

The tweet follows a CNN report that the agency had turned down a White House request to dismiss reports of contact between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.
