Trump: New York Times Reporter Is 'Hillary Flunky'
By: Saagar Enjeti
President Donald Trump rebutted a recent New York Times story claiming he was considering hiring a new lawyer to handle the ongoing Russia probe and called out one of the reporters responsible by name.
The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russia case and am going to add another lawyer to help out. Wrong.

...have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia..just excuse for losing. The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary.

Haberman, a White House reporter for The New York Times, wrote Saturday along with her colleague that Trump was considering hiring a veteran Washington lawyer who had previously assisted former President Bill Clinton in the Lewinsky scandal.
Trump's callout of Haberman comes just hours after he shouted at another familiar foe, NBC's Chuck Todd. The president told supporters at a recent campaign rally Todd was "a sleeping son of a bitch, I'll tell you" rekindling his oft repeated insult of Todd as "sleepy eyes."
