Trump hits back at US media reports on Russia contacts


President Donald Trump has lashed out at the US intelligence community and media after new reports of contacts between members of his team and Russia. Mr Trump accused the National Security Agency (NSA) and FBI of giving out information illegally. Some US media say top Trump aides were in constant communication with Russian officials in the election campaign. Intelligence officials previously said they believed Russia tried to influence the vote in favour of Mr Trump. Moscow has dismissed the claim, describing it as based on unsubstantiated facts.Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that the latest reports of contacts with Trump aides were “not based on any facts”. On Thursday Rex Tillerson is due for his first meeting as US secretary of state with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at a G20 gathering in the German city of Bonn.

  1. Not sure why all contacts with Russia should be considered ‘treason’. The US is not at war with Russia. If the guys would have had dinner with the UK Ambassador would it be considered ‘treason’?
