CNN is no stranger to posting fake news.
The “Clinton News Network” is quite famous for its factually incorrect, gossipy type of news reporting…but when you have CNN writing a fake news post about 2016 Russian election influence on then candidate Trump, and then admitting in the article that everything they just wrote and all the “anonymous” sources they cited are “exaggerated”, “made up”, and “overstated” then you have a real first.
The fake news CNN network is calling out its very own fake news.
Citing two former intelligence officials and a congressional source, CNN reported…
A source told CNN the information was related to finances.
Russians appeared to think “they had the ability to influence the administration through the derogatory information,” the source said.
The White House slamming the suggestions…
“This is yet another round of false and unverified claims made by anonymous sources to smear the President,” a White House spokesman told CNN.
“The reality is, a review of the President’s income from the last ten years showed he had virtually no financial ties at all. There appears to be no limit to which the President’s political opponents will go to perpetuate this false narrative, including illegally leaking classified material.”
The spokesman said the story plays “into the hands of our adversaries and put our country at risk.”
POTUS Trump is 100% correct when he tweets how bad all the fake news reporting makes the USA look…
Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.

The real kicker is that CNN itself admits that the entire article it crafted to add fuel to the Trump-Russia fire is based on “made up” intelligence…
Sources said the Russians claims “could have been exaggerated or even made up.”
Sources declined to say specifically which aides were being discussed.
“The Russians could be overstating their belief to influence,” said one of the sources.
Zerohedge adds…“when has anonymous sourcing of unverifiable claims held the liberal media back from penning another Democrat narrative-confirming article to spoon-feed to the echo-chamber?”
We leave it to Mark Dice to properly break down what he calls the “Clown New Network”…
