On Sunday, Chris Wallace slammed U.S. President Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Priebus for dismissing reports of Russian involvement in Trump’s campaign as being “fake news.”

Wallace attacked Priebus for his words, saying,

“You don’t get to tell us what to do any more than Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I gotta say, he never said we were an enemy of the people.”

Directly addressing a report by the New York Times that claimed that Trump operatives were in contact with Russians before the election, the President’s Chief of Staff complained about the media using anonymous sources prior to calling it “fake news.”

He continued, “I can assure you, and I’ve been to say this, that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that that story is not only inaccurate, but it’s grossly overstated and it’s wrong and there’s nothing to it. If I can say that to the American people, then what does it say about the story?”

Wallace responded,

“I get the fact that you don’t like some stories. You say, because you weren’t part of the campaign before so that you can’t speak to that, you say that the intelligence community says that there were no contacts between anyone in the Trump campaign, no associates of Mr. Trump and anybody involved as a Russian agent, as to the campaign and collusion in the campaign.”
