Trump Quickly Jumps All Over Fox News’ Mark Warner Report: ‘All Tied Into Crooked Hillary’
From Fox News’ lips to the president’s ears.
It seems pretty apparent what President Donald Trump was watching Thursday evening. Fox News ran an “exclusive” report that claimed that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) had been in contact with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch in an attempt to get in touch with Brtish spy Christopher Steele regarding the Trump/Russia dossier.
And wouldn’t you know it, Trump tweeted about it on Thursday night.
Wow! -Senator Mark Warner got caught having extensive contact with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch. Warner did not want a “paper trail” on a “private” meeting (in London) he requested with Steele of fraudulent Dossier fame. All tied into Crooked Hillary.

As you can see in the tweet above, the president was obviously excited about the report, tossing in a “Wow!” while claiming that the whole thing is “tied into Crooked Hillary.”
The story, however, doesn’t appear to be as explosive as Fox News made it out to be, as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) noted right away that Warner had disclosed the text messages four months ago and it had “zero impact” on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s work.
It should also be noted that less than two weeks ago, it was reported that Julian Assange contacted a fake Sean Hannity Twitter account in an effort to provide Hannity with some juicy info on Warner.
