President Donald Trump questioned Tuesday why "fake news" organizations do not report about former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's alleged ties to Russia — praising Fox News for its coverage — or other issues related to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Trump took to Twitter:
In the post, Trump doubled down on two tweets he sent Monday alluding to a report by "Fox & Friends" that Podesta once owned stock in a company that was backed by aides with alleged ties to the Russian government.
President Trump's tweets come as Democrats called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself of his panel's investigation into Russian dealings during the presidential election.
The chairman confirmed Monday he would not step down after news reports disclosed he had met secretly on the White House grounds about communications gathered by U.S. intelligence agencies through incidental collection.
Nunes has dismissed the calls for his recusal as "politics."
