A White House spokesperson publicly threatened a Washington Post reporter and said the administration was compiling a "dossier" on him in response to his reporting on the Trump Organization.

While reporting a story on how the Secret Service has been a "captive customer" in spending the public's money on Trump Organization properties while protecting the president, Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold and his colleagues submitted questions to the White House. In response, White House spokesman Judd Deere told reporters that the administration was targeting him.

"The Washington Post is blatantly interfering with the business relationships of the Trump Organization, and it must stop," Deere wrote in a statement to the Washington Post. "Please be advised that we are building up a very large 'dossier' on the many false David Fahrenthold and others stories as they are a disgrace to journalism and the American people."
