In a series of tweets Sunday morning, Trump denounced a report from the New York Times saying that Washington lawyer Emmet T. Flood, who represented former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment, visited the Oval Office to discuss the possibility of helping to deal with the Justice Department. "Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow".
He also went off on NYT reporter Maggie Haberman, calling her a "Hillary flunky" while insisting she "knows nothing" about him and "is not given access". Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.
Haberman, who Trump has purportedly telephoned about stories, tweeted back, "Lol" - social media shorthand for "laugh out loud". They are doing a great job and. "The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary", he continued nine minutes later.

The story presumably was referring to Trump already having backed failed GOP candidates Luther Strange and Roy Moore in Alabama's special Senate election past year. "I backed and campaigned for all of the winners". Just this weekend, Yahoo News published an article in which National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers celebrated these victories and expressed confidence that they will continue: "The NRCC is undefeated in special elections this year, and I'm supremely confident that will continue".
Trump spoke at a rally in support of Saccone Saturday night, telling him from the stage: "I hate to put this pressure on you, Rick, but the world is watching, because I won this district".
