President Donald Trump slammed the Russia investigation and the media Saturday, calling on the Justice Department in one tweet to disclose who paid for the unsubstantiated dossier after Fusion GPS officials invoked the Fifth Amendment before Congress.
Here are his Twitter posts:
The Fusion GPS officials, co-founder Peter Fritsch and top deputy Thomas Catan, invoked their rights before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, Fox News reports.
Fritsch and Catan took the Fifth on every question posed by committee members in the classified session, according to Fox.
They had been subpoenaed to appear before the panel — and Fusion's other co-founder, Glenn Simpson, has been summoned to appear at a later date.
Regarding the Facebook tweet, The Washington Post reported last month that officials at the social networking site told Congress that a Russian "troll farm" had spent $100,000 in ads during last year's campaign.
The report noted, however, that "the ad spending from Russia is tiny relative to overall campaign costs," according to Facebook officials.
President Trump has long slammed the "fake news" media for its coverage of his administration, including his post Saturday that the press ignored the record highs Wall Street hit on Friday.
On Friday, Trump tweeted "thank you" to Fox News commentator Gerald Rivera after he charged that "anything he does is construed in the worst possible light as evil" by the press.
