The Washington Post says it will not release an anonymous letter sent to the paper charging White House senior aide Jared Kushner tried to set up a private communication channel with Russian officials, a move questioned by The Daily Caller.
"The question is, what is The Washington Post hiding?" the DCNF wrote Tuesday.
The Post used the letter as a main source in its bombshell report about Kushner, also President Donald Trump's son-in-law, but has withheld posting the document since publishing its front-page article last Friday charging Kushner made a pre-inauguration proposal to the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to set up a secret, bug-proof link with the Kremlin.
"The Post was first alerted in mid-December to the meeting by an anonymous letter, which said, among other things, that Kushner had talked to Kislyak about setting up the communications channel,” the article's three authors wrote.
The letter was affirmed by unnamed sources "who reviewed the letter and spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence."
Trump attacked the "fake news media" Sunday morning, describing White House "leaks" as "fabricated lies" and saying stories with "sources say" make it "very possible" those "sources don't exist" and are made up by "fake news writers."
