After weeks on the defensive, President Donald Trump has stepped up his efforts to dispute and downplay revelations stemming from the investigations into the Kremlin's interference in last year's election and possible Russian ties to his campaign associates. The White House has said the real story is not about Russia – it's about how Obama administration officials allegedly leaked and mishandled classified material about Americans.Officially, the White House said Flynn was forced to resign because he had given inaccurate descriptions of the discussions to Vice President Mike Pence and others in the White House.It appears the White House played a role in helping House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., acquire some of that information.The White House's apparent involvement in helping Nunes access the information has overshadowed what Trump officials contend are real concerns about how much information about Americans is disseminated in intelligence reports. Trump has asked the House and Senate intelligence committees to include the matter in their Russia investigations.
