A story was posted on the New York Times over the weekend claiming the Trump administration burrowed into Russia's power grid as a warning on election meddling and general attacks. Since the story has come out it has faced backlash from several people, including Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), who called it irresponsible. President Trump also denounced the story, tweeting:
"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.......... ALSO, NOT TRUE! Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today. They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"
One of the co-authors of this story, David Sanger, joined Brian Kilmeade today to respond to the criticism and defend his reporting, which the president disputes. Listen to the full interview below:
