Trump self-destructs on Twitter with retweets of far-right group

Published

on

President Donald Trump went on a retweet rampage Monday evening, flooding his feed with accusations against every Democrat or Democratic appointee he and his allies could come up with.

Trump’s allied organization, Judicial Watch, listed out any former associates of President Barack Obama who may have known about the FISA warrant that allowed monitoring of Paul Manafort and Carter Page.

In the series of tweets, Trump demanded the FBI and CIA “handling” of Christopher Steele’s dossier. Many of the things found in the dossier were found to be true, but Trump seems fixated on the more salacious aspects of the report that have not yet been substantiated.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch claimed incorrectly that Donald Trump was the target of a spying operation by the Department of Justice, FBI, NSA, CIA and State Department.

Trump then promoted a convoluted tweet from conspiracy theorist and Texas Republican Louie Gohmert.

“What I have accumulated here is absolutely shocking upon the realization that #Mueller’s disreputable, twisted history speaks to the character of the man placed in a position to attempt to legalize a coup against a lawfully-elected President,” Gohmert said, tweeting a link from Sean Hannity’s website.

The president then closed with photos of the first lady at the White House Easter Egg Hunt.
