ABC News reports:
President Donald Trump called today for the Justice Department to investigate the author of an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times that suggested that members of the administration were working against the president.
Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump called on the DOJ to investigate the matter, citing national security concerns.
“I think so, because I think it’s national security,” Trump said when asked if he wants the DOJ to investigate. “I would say Jeff [Sessions] should be investigating the author because it’s national security.”
Fox News reports:
Asked if he’d take action against the Times, Trump said “we’re going to see, I’m looking at that right now.” Trump, in an earlier interview with “Fox & Friends,” said the Times should not have even had the piece. “It’s treason, you could call it a lot of things,” he said, repeating a statement he made on Twitter earlier this week.
