WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says many people are finding out about "tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels" of the FBI and the Justice and State Departments.

He provided no details in his tweet Saturday.

But his tweet comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he had fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe following a recommendation from FBI disciplinary officials.

McCabe has long been a target of Trump's anger. His dismissal precedes the release of an inspector general report that's expected to conclude that McCabe was not forthcoming about matters related to the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails.

In Saturday's tweet, Trump also repeated that there had been no collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. That matter is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
