White House: FBI Told Trump Chief Of Staff That Russia Reports Were ‘BS’

The White House is pushing back vigorously on a CNN report that chief of staff Reince Priebus improperly requested that the FBI publicly rebut reports about an ongoing investigation into ties between Donald Trump advisers and Russian intelligence officials.

In a briefing to reporters on Friday, senior administration officials said that the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, personally told Priebus last week that the reports were “BS.” He may have also called the reports “bullshit,” the officials said.

The officials hosted the background briefing with reporters early Friday in order to respond to a CNN report from Thursday that Priebus pressured the FBI to publicly knock down the reports about the investigation.

    The problem is that nothing but lies have been coming out of Washington DC for 40or 50 years and somehow we think that has or will change.

    CNN is in it’s death throws. Lack of ratings has killed revenue.

      Starting with the director.

  • mort_f says:

    What was the Russian ‘connection’?

    Did they affect any voting machines?
    Did they doctor DNC emails?
    Did they fund anti-Trump NGO’s? Like Obama did in Israel vs. Bibi..

    Please, somebody, anybody, elucidate me about any Russian connection.

      There is no “Russian Connection”!! It’s BS!! As Tiger just said, the FBI went to the White House FIRST and McCabe told Preibus that THERE IS NO TRUTH TO THE ALLEGATIONS THAT THE RUSSIANS HAD ANY CONTACT WITH ANYONE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN!!! Then, when Preibus-(who had been minding his own business and wasn’t even discussing anything with the FBI-asked McCabe who had come to him FIRST and told him about there being NO TRUTH to any of the things CNN was saying)-asked McCabe to go on tv and say that, McCabe told him that there was nothing he could do! Then CNN picked up that Preibus had asked McCabe to do something, & then CNN LIED ABOUT IT SAYING THAT PREIBUS HAD GONE TO THE FBI & ASKED THEM TO SQUASH THE STORY!!!! ALL LIES!!!

        Do note that I was asking a rhetorical question.

        Admittedly I do have a ‘Russian’ connection. My grandparents, and my wife’s parents, escaped Russian pogroms. I worked with them on an international space program for over 20 years and traded gifts with them Always worth.less than $10. I did receive my most memorable compliment from them.

        Are they a threat to the US? Perhaps. But on a scale, they rank much, much, lower than some other threats. Considering global threats, think of the US – Russian alliance in WWII vs. NAZI Germany.

        1. Leslie Woodhull says:

          I agree. My brother-in-law is Israeli and his parents were the only survivors of their respective families after WWII. His parents were both children of survivors of the Russian pogroms themselves.

          I absolutely agree, that on a scale of one to ten, at the moment the Russians might be a level 4-certainly not the level 10+ that the people that were streaming across our southern borders until recently, are!

      We’ll have the answers to all your questions if the 17 Intelligence Agencies is allowed to release their findings. Same goes for the “Putin Puppet’s Tax Releases. Once they are released we can begin building the gallows on the White House lawn. It should be Huggggggge!!

      1. mort_f says:

        I expect that there will be ‘pecking order’ for release of files.
        At the top of the list will be the ‘vetting’ files for Obama.
        Next will be the Clinton Foundation files.

        I am not ‘holding my breath’ waiting. The shredders are working overtime. Cleaning the swamp will take more time than the shredders doing their job.

        1. Bob says:

          You notice how Chump is looking older and heavier lately. The hair is more Orangey and they say he’s 287 lbs. And he’s playing golf EVERY weekend because he knows the Impeachment is closing in on him. So what if it’s costing us MILLIONS for the Chumpster to play games EVERY weekend. That’s what Republicons do, right!!

      2. Leslie Woodhull says:

        Sorry Bobby, but McCabe contacted the wh FIRST & told Preibus that there was NO TRUTH to the rumors about the campaign staff or Trump having ANY contact with Russia AT ANY TIME. Then when Preibus asked McCabe to go public and clear everything up, McCabe said he wouldn’t do that. Then McCabe leaked to CNN the LIE that Preibus had asked him to go public and he told Preibus that he COULDN’T do that!! So there you go BOTH McCABE & CNN LIED!! THE GALLOWS WILL BE BUILT IN ATLANTA ON CNN’S LAWN WHERE WOLFIE BLITZER ET AL WILL HANGED FOR KNOWINGLY LYING TO THE PUBLIC!!! FINALLY GETTING HOSTED ON THEIR OWN PETARD!! ABOUT DAMN TIME!!

        1. Bob says:

          I think the full and independent investigation will show a totally different song than what you’re singing. So let’s just go ahead with the gallows on Chump’s front lawn. Sounds Preibus and some Republicon Congressmen all tried to OBSTRUCT.

        2. Bob says:

          Do your dance around the TRUTH as you Republicons like to do, but when the Independent Investigation gets moving, I’m thinking Republicon heads will roll. Then get ready for the release of the real DAMAGING videos and dossier to be released, followed by the Crooked Tax Returns. Chump and his weasel-like minions keep trying to create diversions, but sorry folks, the party is over. Adios, Amigos!!!!

          1. Leslie Woodhull says:

            Not a “dance” Bobbi my boy!! IT IS THE TRUTH AND YOU ARE THE ONE DANCING!!! LOLOL!!!

          2. Bob says:

            Gee, I feel good conversing with the “Uneducated.”

          3. Leslie Woodhull says:

            Oh sweetie, you’re the uneducated and I’m fine with being finished talking with you.

        3. Bob says:

          Yeah sure, McCabe called the White House and said he had great news for the Chumpster – in – charge. What else did Fox Boobs tell you? Anything about the Easter Bunny? Maybe Comey asked McCabe to call, right!!

        4. Bob says:

          Keep believing that fairy tale and the Easter Bunny will bring you a special treat. Or how about if we let you go the next 18 years without paying any taxes. Would that make you feel good? Just keep believing!!!!!!!!

    3. Karll says:

      The amusing thing is no one of any import on the left has
      denied that the leaked emails were accurate. They lie about
      everything else. Why not that as well?

  • Rick D. says:

    The lame-stream media will do whatever they think is necessary to undermine Trump and his administration. Rather than watching and listening to them, I make it a practice to avoid watching their stations during the time news (their BS) is typically dispensed. No need cluttering my mind with lies and nonsense!

    1. Karll says:

      May their ratings continue to drop.

  • Bob says:

    Per the article, the FBI Deputy Director said the story is a lie. When will we see the retraction from the media? (As soon as the ice skating rink in Hades is open I would bet) The media has made a cottage industry out of making up stories about Trump. During the campaign they ran with a story that his daughter said she’d slap him if she worked for him, which was based on a shtick on Conan. They spoke of his inability to control his campaign, which was obviously better that Hillary’s. They purposely under reported the crowds at his event and over “estimated” the crowd at hers. They have been lying about him for more than 2 years now, and yet they demand creditability and respect from him. Are you f-ing kidding me? Now we have CNN all butt hurt and thinking about not attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, and Vogue and the New Yorker already saying they would not attend. Okay, give their seats to a more reputable publication. Mad Magazine comes to mind.

    1. Retired says:

      Our Honest Media will never admit to selling LIES for the Clintons Hillary started that BS .

      1. Bob says:

        More’s the pity. They DEMAND access to the WH Press room, then twist what is said to fit their narrative. Who are they to tell the WH who they will or will not grant access to? They never cared when credential were with held by other administrations, why now? Is it because this admin will not put up with their crap? They will reprint a lie fostered by one outlet as fact with NO back checking, yet will attack any non-liberal outlet if they misspell the word “their”. (case in point: the CBS falsified Bush documents) Maybe, just maybe, they have become to big for their britches and need to be slapped down every once in a while.

    2. Karll says:

      I perused a recent copy of MAD. It was loaded with anti-Trump

      1. Bob says:

        Still more creditable.

  • PK says:

    It was Hillary, G. Soros and Obama…..

  • Tiger says:

    Been hearing this BS all day again the Russian/WH connection conspiracy theory they are hoping to put out there to Impeach Trump, only problem is it was the FBI that went to the WH not the other way around.

    In fact if the Democrats want to blame anyone for having ties to Russia it was Comey who shot Hillary down, not once but twice and the second time just before the voting started.

    Was Russia telling Comey what to do? And why would Russia want Hillary to lose? She reset the button with them and gave them our uranium. so what they hey and also it was O who gave them the Ukraine and was caught on an open mic saying he could do more more re-elected. How was he so sure he would be re-elected? Anyway go after Comey Schumer, hey in fact Podesta said in a recent interview he thought the FBI were responsible for her loss, there ya have it.

    1. Karll says:

      Comey unquestionably threw that email investigation. I don’t
      understand how Trump can keep him as FBI director. The whole
      thing needs to be REinvestigated and indictments made.

      As far as Russia is concerned, OF COURSE they would’ve preferred that sow clinton as potus! They could’ve done whatever they wanted as long as they put a few million in her slush fund..errr…”foundation”.

      1. Tiger says:

        When our men in POW camps in Nam they sent us messages via eye movement etc and I honestly believe since Comey made it so clear and laid out the case so well that he was saying to us, look O is in charge and this is all I can do for now. When he sent the letter to congress at the last minute it only made me believe this more. He did what he could and who knows what he told Trump and what they are going to do.


        1. Karll says:

          Fair enough, but to me, there’s NO excuse for letting off someone who had such an arrogantly reckless attitude toward govt communications while others were sent to prison for far less.

          1. Tiger says:

            Oh I am in full agreement and awaiting for the results of Trump’s investigation into all those men in prison for less, hoping for pardons.

    2. dmttbt says:

      If they can’t build a impeachment against obama, who can they build one against? Oh yes that is right Trump has not only to battle the demos but also the repubs. Talk about a tough job.

      1. Tiger says:

        Amen and that is why he absolutely has to keep on top of getting in touch with the people.
