Trump Goes After FBI and Clinton After Watching Fox & Friends: ‘What a Mess!’


President Donald Trump suggested the FBI used the Russia dossier to “spy on the Trump campaign” and “influence the Election” in an early morning tweet sent out Thursday.

He also threw out some speculation in his tweet, asking whether the “Dems or Clinton” paid Russians, of the location of “hidden and smashed DNC servers” and “Crooked Hillary Emails.”

“What a mess!” the president added.

Trump was clearly spending Thursday morning on “Executive Time.” He mentioned “@foxandfriends” in his tweet, and the Fox News breakfast show’s hosts repeatedly attacked the FBI on Thursday morning for allegedly spying on the Trump campaign.

The president’s tweet on former opponent Hillary Clinton comes the morning after Kellyanne Conway told Chris Cuomo on CNN that “nobody” in the White House “talks about Hillary Clinton,” an obviously absurd comment that drew quite a bit of consternation from the anchor.

UPDATE: 7:36 a.m.: Trump sent out another tweet accusing the FBI of “so badly” surveilling his campaign. Fox & Friends has been covering the upcoming FISA bill vote breathlessly this morning:
