Trump Slams New York Times As 'Fake News Paper' After Report On Mueller Probe

President Trump on Thursday slammed the New York Times as a “Fake News paper." President Trump on Thursday slammed the New York Times as a "Fake News paper" and suggested it made up its recent story about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report being more damaging than Attorney General William Barr recently suggested in his summary.

"The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report," Trump tweeted on Thursday.

"In fact, they probably had no sources at all!

They are a Fake News paper who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me!" The day prior, the Times reported that "some of Robert S.

Mueller III's investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P.

Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated."  As sources, the publication cited: "Government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations."  Notably, the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted in favor of issuing subpoenas for the full Mueller report, including the supporting materials.  Trump responded to that decision via Twitter on Thursday, stating: "According to polling, few people seem to care about the Russian Collusion Hoax, but some Democrats are fighting hard to keep the Witch Hunt alive.

They should focus on legislation or, even better, an investigation of how the ridiculous Collusion Delusion got started - so illegal!"
