“I read where Russia is helping Bernie Sanders. Nobody said it to me. Nobody said it to me at all. Nobody briefed me about that at all. … They leaked it.
Schiff and his group, they leaked it to the papers and as usual. They ought to investigate Adam Schiff for leaking that information. He should not be leaking information out of intelligence. They ought to investigate Adam Schiff.”-DJT
On his way to India, Trump held a Yellicopter Presser on the White House Lawn. Without any evidence or proof, Trump accused Rep. Adam Schiff of “leaking classified information on Russian interference in the 2020 U.S. election to hurt Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders.”
Trump said he had not been briefed on intelligence that Russia was aiming to boost the campaign of Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, and he called for a probe into Schiff for the leak. Schiff, a Democrat, denied the allegation.
By raising questions about the latest findings, Trump appears to be seeking to boost Sanders, who is now the front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. As a self-described democratic socialist, Sanders is a candidate Trump would like to take on in a general election to bolster his argument that Democrats are pushing a socialist agenda.
National security adviser: ‘I haven’t seen any intelligence’ that Russia is trying to help Trump-
“I haven’t seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything to attempt to get President Trump reelected,” O’Brien said in an interview with ABC’s “This Week” to be broadcast on Sunday. “I think this is the same old story that we’ve heard before. … We’ve been very tough on Russia, and we’ve been great on election security. So I think it’s a nonstory.”
