"The same White House official said that Priebus later reached out again to McCabe and to FBI Director James Comey asking for the FBI to at least talk to reporters on background to dispute the stories", CNN reports. "The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security "leakers" that have permeated our government for a long time".
According to an anonymous senior administration official, Priebus responded to the FBI's McCabe: "Okay, what am I supposed to do?" and "How do we fix this?"
President Trump's top advisers took the stage today at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
"A source says that Donald Trump is a frightful, awful human being, let them say it to my face", Mr Trump told the Conservative Political Action Committee.
Bannon hit all his (and Trump's) favorite targets: He called the media "the opposition party", and reckoned this of the president's political foes: "If you think they are giving you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken". A third (33 percent) said they had a "very unfavorable" view, while 14 percent had a somewhat unfavorable view. "They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name".
Trump has been dogged by persistent questions about his potential ties to Russian Federation since he won the 2016 presidential election. Trump, in his speech, also complained about the spending caps which were put in place on the defence budget in 2011.

Donald Trump's chief strategist says the White House's fight with the media is just getting started.
On Meet the Press that following Sunday, Priebus told Chuck Todd: "We've spent days talking about a story that says that our campaign had constant contacts with Russian spies".
"The reason Reince and I are good partners is that we can disagree", Bannon said. [The president] has no interests in Russian Federation. "They should follow the law", he said.
Earlier this month, a USA official said a months-long inquiry into contacts between Russian government officials and associates of Trump's campaign and business interests was continuing despite the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn for misleading White House officials about his communication with Russia.
