Donald Trump Back to the States Back to Ripping 'Fake News' Media

Now that he's back in the USA after an extensive foreign trip, his first as president, Donald Trump returned to his old buddy, his Twitter account, and proceeded to go after the media.

After rumors swirled during his trip overseas that a whole team of lawyers might have to see his tweets before he posts them, it's clear that's not happening, because early this morning Trump was back online spewing out bullshit.

Despite reports that the president is mulling yet another staff shake-up, the president remains defiant, insisting the fake news media is trying to muddy his message.

Reports have also surfaced recently that Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian officials and asked former FBI Director James Comey to end a federal investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

According to the person familiar with the Kushner meeting, the Trump team eventually felt there was no need for a back channel once Rex Tillerson was confirmed as secretary of state on February 1.

Seemingly unable to control the leaks within his own White House, Mr. Trump has become increasingly frustrated.

US Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said such secret channels may be used in situations including peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan or for the release of American hostages.

Schiff said he expected Kushner, who serves as an unpaid adviser to Trump, to appear before his committee and suggested his security clearance be reviewed.

"You've got the ambassador to Russian Federation reporting back to Moscow on an open channel", Graham said.

Jared Kushner is understood to be under scrutiny by the FBI as part of its wider investigation into Russian links.

"Russia, at least for my money, is our primary adversary", he told NBC.
