President Donald Trump is calling West Wing leakers "traitors and cowards" as a dustup over an aide's crass remark about Arizona Sen. John McCain extends into a fifth day.

In a Monday afternoon tweet, Trump says the "leaks coming out of the White House are a massive over exaggeration put out by the Fake News Media in order to make us look as bad as possible."

He adds of the leakers: "We will find out who they are!"

During a meeting last week, Trump communications aide Kelly Sadler dismissed McCain's opposition to the president's CIA nominee by saying of McCain: "he's dying anyway." The 81-year-old Republican was diagnosed in July with brain cancer.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Monday that Sadler had been "dealt with internally," but he wouldn't say how.
