WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says many people are finding out about "tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels" of the FBI and the Justice and State Departments.
He provided no details in his tweet Saturday.
As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp— Donald J.

But his tweet comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he had fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe following a recommendation from FBI disciplinary officials.
McCabe has long been a target of Trump's anger. His dismissal precedes the release of an inspector general report that's expected to conclude that McCabe was not forthcoming about matters related to the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails.
The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation? How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018
In Saturday's tweet, Trump also repeated that there had been no collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. That matter is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
