Infowars founder Alex Jones took to Periscope Monday evening to point out the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. was airing CNN in its lobby on the same day that the FBI raided the offices of the President’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen.
Here’s what Jones had to say about the bizarre scene at the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C.
“Alex Jones here, visiting Trump hotel. I just want to know at Trump hotel, why are they airing CNN? I was here last night, this is very fake news and CNN, not Fox News, not InfoWars, not Breitbart, not Drudgereport.com. We hear about the raid in the Story Daniels investigation now, it’s now RussiaGate, it’s now PornStar gate. I get to sit here, while I am eating dinner and put up with this. Is this swamp behind this? Why is CNN airing at Trump tower? That is the question, ladies and gentleman. Over there you have the president saying it’s disgraceful, an attack on America, but over here we have CNN. It’s very fake news.”
Earlier today, Trump trashed the moved the raid Cohen’s offices.
“It’s a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying it for a long time. I’ve wanted to keep it down. I’ve given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel,” Trump said.
“They continue to just go forward and here we are talking about Syria, we’re talking about a lot of serious things … and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. Actually, it’s much more than that. You could say right after I won the nomination it started.”
“This is the most biased group of people. These people have the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen … Either Democrats or a couple of Republicans who worked for President Obama. They’re not looking at the other side — Hillary Clinton … They only keep looking at us,” Trump added.
On Monday, FBI agents raided the office of one of Trump’s personal lawyers Michael Cohen at the request of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
