President Trump tore into CNN and journalist Carl Bernstein in a Wednesday evening Twitter post, over the much-debated story published in July which claimed that Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen said Trump knew in advance about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting with his son and a Russian lawyer.

Trump has denied that claim, and recently Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, has admitted he was the “source” that CNN used. Additionally, Davis has stated that he isn’t sure it’s even true, and regrets ever discussing it. CNN has stood by their story, despite Davis’ backtracking.

The president tweeted:

CNN is being torn apart from within based on their being caught in a major lie and refusing to admit the mistake. Sloppy @carlbernstein, a man who lives in the past and thinks like a degenerate fool, making up story after story, is being laughed at all over the country! Fake News.
