President Trump lashed out on Twitter ​against the “Fake News” for not reporting that Russian spies had information on his campaign.

“One of the things that has been lost in the politics of this situation is that the Russians collected and spread negative information​ ​…..​ ​…about then candidate Trump​,​”​​ he wrote on Twitter​.

​He referred to a report from a Fox News reporter but it wasn’t clear which one.

“Catherine Herridge @FoxNews. So why doesn’t Fake News report this? Witch Hunt! Purposely phony reporting​,” the president wrote.​​

​Shortly before the tweets on Russia, Trump retweeted a report from the website Town Hall. ​”ABC, NBC, And CBS Pretty Much Bury IT Scandal Engulfing Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Office,” the web site’s tweet said.

The story ​was about​ a tech person who worked for Democratic members of Congress, including former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, ​being under investigation.

Quoting the Capitol Police, the report said Imran Awan has been accused of “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”
