Donald Trump Jr. on Sunday claimed CNN is covering up for “leftist hack” Carl Bernstein, a veteran journalist known for his coverage of Watergate, over his reporting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

“Comical to watch @CNN covering for leftist hack @carlbernstein,” the president’s son tweeted. “He & Obama staffer @jimsciutto obviously got story wrong. CNN ‘stands by’ it anyway, defending literal fake news. 3 ‘reporters’ were fired for false CNN hit on [former White House communications director Anthony] Scaramucci & this is FAR worse!”

The article goes on to state the following:

Bernstein and CNN’s Jim Sciutto were among the reporters who wrote in July that Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was willing to tell special counsel Robert Mueller that President Trump knew about the meeting with Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer promising dirt on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The CNN story was followed by a Washington Post story the next day concerning Cohen’s claims about Trump’s knowledge of Russian efforts during the election. The Post said that information came from Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, who agreed to go on the record over the weekend.

Davis, a contributor to The Hill, has backtracked in recent days, telling the Post he is unsure if Cohen knows whether Trump was aware of Russian meddling.
