Trump Begins 9/11 Anniversary With Unhinged Tweet Attacking FBI And Justice Dept





President Trump kicked off the morning of September 11 by tweeting a quote from a Fox Business Network segment accusing the FBI and Justice Department of colluding with Russia against him, as he heads to a Flight 93 memorial event.

“‘We have found nothing to show collusion between President Trump & Russia, absolutely zero, but every day we get more documentation showing collusion between the FBI & DOJ, the Hillary campaign, foreign spies & Russians, incredible,’” Trump tweeted, tagging Fox contributor Sara Carter and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.




Trump then retweeted a post by White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr., who shared a photo of Trump signing a proclamation that designates Sept. 11, 2001, “Patriot Day 2018” in honor of “the nearly 3,000 lives lost.”

“#Neverforget,” Trump wrote in the retweet.

Trump then quoted Fox News, claiming the text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page were part of a “media leak strategy.”

“So terrible, and NOTHING is being done at DOJ or FBI — but the world is watching, and they get it completely,” Trump tweeted.
