‘TREASONOUS HOAX!’ Trump goes on tweeting frenzy as House Judiciary mulls holding Barr in contempt
An angry President Donald Trump on Wednesday fired off a series of tweets as the House Judiciary Committee debating whether to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress.
Trump began by tweeting about segments that aired earlier in the day on “Fox & Friends” about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. After posting a quote about the investigation from co-host Ainsley Earhardt, Trump declared the entire probe a “TREASONOUS HOAX!”
“Everyone wants to know who needs to be accountable, because it took up two years of our lives talking about this Russian involvement. It proved No Collusion, & people want to trace it back to see how this all happened?” @ainsleyearhardt @foxandfriends TREASONOUS HOAX!# p #3_10 # ad skipped = true #

The president then quoted an attack on former British spy Christopher Steele that was leveled by “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade.

After this, Trump retweeted his earlier statements in which he brushed off reports that he had managed to lose $1 billion over the span of a decade.
