President Trump Hits Out at 'Fake News' Following Kushner Reports

As scandal ensnares the White House, the president Sunday pushed back on charges from what he described as "the fake news media".

Trump tweeted 10 times as of 11:30 p.m. Sunday, with five of those addressing so-called "fake news".

President Trump then piled on the media bias in the coverage of this week's Montana congressional race, saying it was treated as "a big deal" by Democrats and "fake news" media "until the Republican won".

In a series of tweets, the Prez told his 30.8 million followers if they see the words "sources say" without mentioning names, it's possible the news story is fake.

Both The Wall Street Journal - on Friday - and the Washington daily, on Sunday, reported that Trump is planning a big shakeup in the White House, including possibly dismissing or reducing the role of Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

That suggestion was puzzling, though, since the budget plan submitted last week by the White House calls for cutting $616 billion in future Medicaid spending, $250 billion in spending cuts through the Obamacare repeal, as well as cuts for low-income children's health care. "#FakeNews is the enemy!"

The White House is considering restructuring its communications staff.

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

"You have to ask, well, who are they hiding the conversation from?" he said on ABC.

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.

His son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, is under scrutiny in the FBI's probe into Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign. Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, noted that Kushner has been willing to answer questions.

Though he had not seen evidence of collusion when he stepped down on January 20, Clapper said all the signs made an FBI investigation not only appropriate but necessary. "They are not our friends".
