La Maison Blanche souhait recourir à des agents du renseignement pour contrer les attaques sur la Russie


Une information de plus qui montre bien à quel point ce dossier préoccupe l'administration Trump. Puisque le F.B.I. a refusé d'intervenir publiquement dans ce dossier, la Maison Blanche a préféré recourir à des agents du renseignement.

 "The officials broadly dismissed Trump associates’ contacts with Russia as infrequent and inconsequential. But the officials would not answer substantive questions about the issue, and their comments were not published by The Post and do not appear to have been reported elsewhere.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer confirmed that the White House communicated with officials with the aim of contesting reporting on Russia, but maintained that the administration did nothing improper. “When informed by the FBI that [the ­Russia-related reporting] was false, we told reporters who else they should contact to corroborate the FBI’s version of the story,” he said.

The decision to involve those officials could be perceived as threatening the independence of U.S. spy agencies that are supposed to remain insulated from partisan issues, as well as undercutting the credibility of ongoing congressional probes. Those officials saw their involvement as an attempt to correct coverage they believed to be erroneous."
