The Fox News Sunday host, who earlier attacked Trump over referring to the media as “the enemy of the people,” went after Priebus early, at one time lecturing him, “You don’t get to tell us what to do any more than Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I gotta say, he never said we were an enemy of the people.”
Addressing a New York Times report that claimed that top Trump operatives were in contact with the Russians prior to the election, Priebus complained about the media using “anonymous sources,” before calling it “fake news.”
“I can assure you, and I’ve been to say this, that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that that story is not only inaccurate, but it’s grossly overstated and it’s wrong and there’s nothing to it,” Priebus asserted. “If I can say that to the American people, then what does it say about the story?”
“I get the fact that you don’t like some stories,” Wallace replied. “You say, because you weren’t part of the campaign before so that you can’t speak to that, you say that the intelligence community says that there were no contacts between anyone in the Trump campaign, no associates of Mr. Trump and anybody involved as a Russian agent, as to the campaign and collusion in the campaign.”
“They made it very clear that that story in the New York Times is complete garbage,” Priebus replied. “Quite frankly they used different words than that, okay?”
To his credit Wallace pointed that Priebus, who had just complained about "anonymous sources," just did the same exact thing to argue that those news stories were incorrect.
It is interesting that Reince "once and " Priebus planted this flag so firmly in this absolute certainty that the intelligence agencies are not going to reveal that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Especially since these investigations are ongoing, and nowhere near completion yet.
That is unless Priebus knows the fix is in and that with Trump's new people in place there is simply no way that anything untoward will be revealed.
Things that make you go "Hmmm."
