Trump Continues Attempt To Divert From Flynn Scandal

The New York Daily News reports:

President Trump, after again ripping the “Fake News Media,” turned to Fox News for proof that he’s the victim in the probes of his administration’s alleged Russian ties. The President, in another Saturday morning tweetstorm, quoted a Fox story from a day earlier reporting that members of Trump’s team were identified in intelligence reports “for political purposes.”

Despite his disdain for anonymous sources, Trump jumped on the story — provided by an unidentified Congressional source — in his fifth and sixth tweets of the day. Trump — as he has done since accusing the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower — produced no evidence or corroboration of the Fox report.

Earlier in the morning, he blasted media coverage of the Russian probes currently underway in both the House and the Senate. The FBI is also conducting a counterintelligence investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign.
