President Donald Trump may have slowed his tweeting over Christmas break, but now that the holiday is over, he’s back at it, going after his critics and the integrity of the Russia investigation.
This morning, Trump tweeted claims made by Fox News commentators about the infamous dossier that contained potentially damaging allegations about Trump’s campaign and the candidate himself.
It is unclear what role — if any — the dossier may have played in the FBI’s sprawling probe, which began in earnest last year after suspected Russian operatives hacked the Democratic National Committee. The dossier is uncorroborated but not disproved.
“WOW, @foxandfriends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!” he wrote.
The comments that Trump referenced in the tweet were made by both a Fox News reporter who was hosting the morning show, Todd Piro, and former congressman and current Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz.
