Saturday, President Trump admonished the Washington Post for a “phony” story that reports he is irked and worried amid Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
In a Tweet, President Trump put down the Friday article reporting that he is frustrated witnesses are coming forward to testify before the House.
“The Fake Washington Post keeps doing phony stories, with zero sources, that I am concerned with the Impeachment scam,” President Trump said.
“I am not because I did nothing wrong. It is the other side, including [Rep. Adam] Schiff [D-Calif.] and his made up story, that are concerned. Witch Hunt continues!”
According to the WP account, President Trump and his closest advisers “now recognize that the snowballing probe poses a serious threat to the president — and that they have little power to block it.”
Earlier this week, President Trump declared he would not continue to read either the Post or New York Times; the White House later said it would cancel its subscriptions to both publications, and urged other federal agencies to do the same.
Several current and former Trump Administration officials have testified before House investigators, with more depositions scheduled.
Have a terrific weekend
