CNN on Wednesday explained the source of President Donald Trump’s latest unsubstantiated attack on former President Barack Obama.
Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning that the Obama administration had granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians as part of the nuclear deal.
CNN’s Oliver Darcy said Trump’s allegations appeared to have originated with an Iranian newspaper, which cited a cleric. The claims were later picked up by Fox News.
“The great thing is Fox News’ own commentator [former Obama State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf] told Fox News this sounds like BS. That’s an actual quote they included in their story and Fox News still ran with it, which is just really mind numbing,” he added.

Trump, who is also meeting with Netanyahu's election rival Benny Gantz later Monday, said the plan would be unveiled at 12:00 pm (1700 GMT) Tuesday.
Palestinians have already panned the White House peace plan, saying it is overwhelmingly biased toward Israel. No Palestinian leaders were invited to the White House.

Democrats stepped up their calls for Senate Republicans to allow witnesses at Donald Trump's impeachment trial after a leaked manuscript for an upcoming memoir by former national security adviser John Bolton undercut the president's defense.
Trump told Bolton he wanted to maintain a freeze on $391 million in aid to Ukraine until its leaders agreed to help investigate the Bidens, according to a manuscript turned over by Bolton to the National Security Council for review, which was obtained by The New York Times.
