Trump Rips ‘Tainted’ FBI, ‘Pile of Garbage’ Dossier After Watching Fox & Friends Again
President Donald Trump is spending the holiday weekend away from Washington, though that’s clearly not going to stop him from partaking in his favorite morning activity: watching Fox & Friends and tweeting about it.
WOW, @foxandfrlends “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!

Trump’s favorite show gave extensive coverage today to unverified aspects of Fusion GPS’ dossier, as well as the recent controversy and allegations of bias surrounding Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. About 20 minutes before the president’s tweet, the curvy couch fervently discussed these matters with conservative commentator Buck Sexton, who noted the dossier likely received part of its funding from Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 campaign.
“What we really want to know is was the dossier – which you all are quite aware was a Clinton funded opposition research document – the basis for weaponizing the intelligence community against a political campaign as it was happening,” said Sexton. “This would be the greatest scandal certainly of my lifetime.”
As a bonus clip, here’s former congressman Jason Chaffetz calling the dossier “bogus.”

Trump’s tweet might not really be any surprise though, seeing how he’s been trashing the FBI, James Comey and Andrew McCabe quite a bit in recent weeks.
In other news, the president tweeted on Christmas that he would be getting “back to work” today. This work, allegedly, entails live-tweeting Fox & Friends.
