Trump asks Justice Department to investigate leaks

President Trump said today he has directed the Department of Justice to look into the leaks that have been happening during his administration.

"What I do worry about though is if classified information is being leaked".

"The failing New York Times wrote a big, long front-page story yesterday and it was very much discredited, as you know".

US House of Representatives Democratic Party members, including House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, said Wednesday the alleged communications between then-candidate Trump's campaign aides and Russian officials should be investigated. "That does compromise our national security".

In the last press conference, Mr. Trump assured that everything is running smoothly but will all the alligators present from the previous administration are reportedly hindering the work of the government nearly at every step.

"The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught!" The Washington Post reported Monday that the Justice Department had warned the White House weeks ago that Flynn had not been forthright about his pre-inauguration conversations with a Russian official.
