President Trump on Thursday blasted the media, saying it doesn't want to cover an Obama-era uranium deal with Russia.

"Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn't want to follow!" Trump tweeted.

The tweet comes after a report published by The Hill that the FBI had gathered substantial evidence of bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of the United States' uranium supply.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday sought permission to interview an FBI informant who helped agents uncover the scheme.

Trump frequently targets the media, blasting networks for their coverage of his administration.

Earlier this month, he said the broadcast licenses of networks should be challenged and revoked, if appropriate.
