Trump often rails on the media, accusing reporters of printing incorrect stories related to his administration. He frequently refers to stories or networks as "fake news" and often dismisses reports that cite anonymous sources.

The president's latest tweet comes hours before Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard Sessions'Occupy ICE' protests emerge across the country Prosecutor warned border authorities office is ‘diverting’ DOJ resources from other cases: report There's room in America for domestic violence victims MORE is set to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Sessions's testimony follows former FBI Director James Comey's highly anticipated appearance before the same panel last week.

Comey said during a closed-door meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that Sessions may have had an undisclosed third meeting with the Russian ambassador in 2016 during the presidential campaign.

The former FBI director hedged his comments, but congressional investigators were reportedly already looking into whether Sessions and Sergey Kislyak met on the sidelines of a foreign policy speech Trump gave in April 2016.
