This story broke a little while ago:
BREAKING: Zach Fuentes, Top Aide to John Kelly, Denies Atlantic Story About Trump
“Fuentes unequivocally denied @TheAtlantic’s report…Fuentes personally briefed Trump on the weather situation that led to the trip being canceled.”

Excerpt from the piece at Breitbart:
Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Zach Fuentes denied to Breitbart News The Atlantic’s account of President Donald Trump’s comments about troops in Europe.
Fuentes unequivocally denied The Atlantic’s report last week, a huge blow to the establishment media narrative. Fuentes personally briefed President Trump on the weather situation that led to the trip being canceled. He is also a close personal confidante of former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
“You can put me on record denying that I spoke with The Atlantic,” Fuentes told Breitbart News on Monday. “I don’t know who the sources are. I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather. Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?”
He specifically also stated that he believes The Atlantic’s sources “are unlikely first hand accounts.”
“They are conflating those people from something the day after,” Fuentes said.
The fact that Fuentes—Kelly’s closest ally—is now publicly denying the report from The Atlantic is a monstrous strike against the credibility of the report. Several Trump critics, including former National Security Adviser John Bolton, have also denied this happened.
Every person who was allegedly in the room who has spoken up so far has denied the account of what happened. Fuentes’ denial, reported here exclusive on Breitbart News first, deals another strike against The Atlantic’s credibility.
So, here we are, four days after The Atlantic’s hoax story broke, and not one single person who is a witness to the events described in it has had the courage to speak on the record backing up the allegations contained in it. Meanwhile, every single witness to the events in question who has the courage and personal integrity to talk on the record has unequivocally denied those allegations.
Every. Single. One.
In a speech on Monday, the President himself no doubt hit the real motivation behind some of these gutless anonymous “sources” with this:
Trump: "I'm not saying the military's in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars, so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy" pic.twitter.com/uu1UnBnHbT

Bingo. Assuming the Atlantic or Jennifer Griffin actually have any real “sources,” when we discover their identities – and we inevitably will – we will also no doubt discover that they have gobs of personal income at stake in the military/industrial complex. This is the single most predictable aspect of this entire situation.
Money talks and bullshit walks, and the Atlantic hoax has tons of walking and talking going on behind it.
That is all.
