A frustrated President Trump said Thursday he’s ordered a Justice Department probe of leaks of classified information, and he defended fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, saying he “did nothing wrong” by talking to a Russian diplomat before the inauguration.

“We are looking into that very seriously,” Mr. Trump said of leaks by U.S. intelligence agencies. “It’s a criminal act. We’ve got to stop it.”

Pressed repeatedly by reporters in a 75-minute news conference on whether any of his aides had been in contact with Russia during the campaign — the subject of another leak this week — the president replied, “None that I know of.”

Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven’t made a phone call to Russia in years,” Mr. Trump said.
