President Trump attacked The Washington Post and The New York Times via Twitter today for what he views as their reluctance to cover the Phoenix tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch last June:
The impetus: Trump's tweet was spurred by the American Center for Law and Justice's release of FOIA-obtained emails from the Department of Justice and FBI, which the organization claims shows that both newspapers collaborated with the DOJ and FBI to bury the story. ALCJ's chief counsel is Trump's personal attorney, Jay Sekulow.
