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.

Wells Fargo has already hit stimulus cap as small businesses worry loans are running out: report
On Monday, the Washington Post reported that Wells Fargo, one of the nation's largest banks, is already cutting off new applications for the government's small-business stimulus relief program.
"Wells Fargo didn’t begin taking applications until Saturday and by Monday morning said it reached the $10 billion cap it had set for loans under the program," wrote Renae Merle. "Small businesses, which employ nearly half of the United States’ private-sector workers, say they are facing long waits and rejection as they scramble to secure loans through the fund, known as the Paycheck Protection Program.
