Former President Donald Trump is calling for a stunning investigation.
Per the Washington Examiner, “Trump called on the Pulitzer Prize Board to rescind the 2018 National Reporting awards granted to the New York Times and the Washington Post for their coverage of the Russian collusion story, claiming the stories were based on ‘false reporting’ and a ‘complete lack of evidence.'”
But Trump didn’t stop there.
“As has been widely publicized, the coverage was no more than a politically motivated farce which attempted to spin a false narrative that my campaign supposedly colluded with Russia despite a complete lack of evidence underpinning this allegation,” said Trump in a letter.
