Trump and his administration’s top officials regularly lie and make false statements.
Good morning. Hours after his administration said it is considering military force against Syrian leaders for possibly planning a chemical weapons attack, and after an independent body said his health care plan would leave millions uninsured, President Trump is tweeting …. about “fake news” and CNN.

Early Saturday morning, BuzzFeed News broke a story about CNN deleting and retracting a report about Anthony Scaramucci, a Trump transition team official, allegedly being under investigation by the Senate committee looking into Russian interference in the election.
On Monday, three people at CNN associated with the report — Thomas Frank, the reporter; Eric Lichtblau, its editor; and investigations editor Lex Haris — resigned amid an internal investigation.
