In the wake of the completion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s 2016 election meddling, President Trump lashed out at the media Friday, suggesting that the New York Times and Washington Post should have their Pulitzers taken away.
“Robert Mueller was a Hero to the Radical Left Democrats, until he ruled that there was No Collusion with Russia (so ridiculous to even say!). After more than two years since the ‘insurance policy’ statement was made by a dirty cop, I got the answers I wanted, the Truth,” Trump tweeted.
“The problem is, no matter what the Radical Left Democrats get, no matter what we give them, it will never be enough,” Trump continued. “Just watch, they will Harass & Complain & Resist (the theme of their movement). So maybe we should just take our victory and say NO, we’ve got a Country to run!”
“So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100% NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia – And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt? In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!” Trump added.
Days ago, Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the Mueller report, noting “that the special counsel did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to sway the election and offered no conclusion on whether the president sought to obstruct justice during the investigation,” reports the Washington Post.
On Monday, Trump spoke to reporters about the completion of the Mueller probe.
“It’s lasted a long time,” Trump said. “We’re glad it’s over. It’s 100 percent the way it should have been. I wish it could have gone a lot sooner, a lot quicker. There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things. I would say treasonous things against our country.”
