Trump: Why Doesn’t Senate Intelligence Committee Investigate ‘Fake News’ Media?

President Trump continues to deflect attention from the continuation of investigations into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.

Senate Intelligence Committee leaders Richard Burr and Mark Warner held a press conference yesterday where they announced that the probe into Russian interference and potential collusion with the Trump campaign is still in effect. The two senators also warned people to remain vigilant since Russian intelligence is likely to try meddling with American politics again in the future.

In response to all of this, Trump is now suggesting that Congressional Republicans ought to be investigating the “fake news” media instead of Russia.

Trump has made his disdain for the Russia investigations perfectly clear throughout his presidency. The president has referred to the inquiry as a “hoax,” though Burr declined to say whether he agreed with that characterization when asked about this yesterday.

UPDATE – 7:58 a.m. EST: Trump isn’t done hitting the media yet, seeing as he just tweeted once more about the disputed reports about his relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson:
