Peskov's ire was apparently directed at Bloomberg's 16 February story alleging the Kremlin had ordered state media to cut back coverage of Trump, citing three unnamed people familiar with the matter.
He lied to the vice president, and by extension the president and the American people, about a conversation in December with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.in which sanctions were discussed in some manner.
Trump went on to accuse his own intelligence agencies of acting like their Russian counterparts by leaking information to the press.
It is easy for Trump to revert to his reality TV persona and fire Flynn.
Another was Trump's accusation last Wednesday that Putin seized Crimea during the Obama administration.
I am urging my colleagues in Congress to establish a plan of action to determine all the facts and, if necessary, hold President Trump and his aides accountable. The implication is that Flynn was, at the very least, highly sympathetic to the Russians, so they must be crestfallen by his ouster. He was experienced and smart enough.

The controversy surrounding the role President Donald Trump's lawyer played in pushing a "peace plan" for Russian Federation and Ukraine on the National Security Council is "an absurd attempt to distract" from Trump's reforms, the White House told Business Insider on Tuesday.

"Standing up to him could mean being targeted by trolls, and not just on the Internet: When Garry Kasparov spoke at a political opposition event, he was interrupted - and this is true - by radio-controlled flying dildos", Oliver said. Those who thought he was going to "settle down" once he got into the White House have had to think again. Somehow it doesn't sound presidential, and any parent knows this kind of response is generally an inadvertent admission of guilt.
The second he described as "intelligence we intentionally want to give to Russian Federation". We don't give them the actual original material which would let them analyze potential sources of the material.
The New York Times reported Tuesday that Artemenko was suspected of conspiring with Russian officials to commit "subversive acts against Ukraine", including pushing his proposal for a deal that would "legitimize the temporary occupation" of the Crimean peninsula. And I've never heard that he's had any other contacts before the election.
One former official said that Israel has no choice in these situations about whether to share intelligence with the U.S., noting "We also receive".
"One should pay no attention to all this talk about whether he is of sound mind or not", said Dr. Enikolopov. But Flynn did not need to remember what he said or did not say; USA intelligence agencies recorded his phone calls.
