Trump: Media's 'Blind Hatred' Fueling Russia 'Conspiracy Theories'

NYTimes website 2/15/17
Amid an intensifying furor over his administration's ties to Russia, President Donald Trump responded Wednesday morning with a flurry of tweets aimed at discrediting his critics, reports CNBC.

The White House faced fresh headlines stemming from the complex web of communications between Trump, his staff and Russian officials. Michael Flynn resigned Monday as national security advisor following revelations that he had discussed U.S.-imposed sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador to the United States and had misled Vice President Mike Pence and others about the discussion.

In the wake of the scandal, various news organizations have probed the Trump team's connections with Russia. The New York Times, for instance, reported Wednesday that multiple members of the president's campaign team had contact with Russian intelligence officials during his successful race against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

For the president, though, it was all part of a media hit-job trying to probe a Russia connection that doesn't exist.
