President Trump blasted the “Corrupt News” on Friday morning for burying the indictment of Obama’s White House counsel Greg Craig.

“President Obama’s top White House lawyer, Gregory B. Craig, was indicted yesterday on very serious charges. This is a really big story, but the Fake News New York Times didn’t even put it on page one, rather page 16. Washington Post not much better, “tiny” page one. Corrupt News!” Trump said in a tweet.

Former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig was charged Thursday by a federal grand jury on charges stemming from Mueller’s 2012 work – related probe.

Craig, 74, served from 2009 to 2010 as Obama’s legal counsel and worked as Bill Clinton’s senior legal counsel during his impeachment.

On Thursday, a federal grand jury filed a two-count indictment on charges of making false statements and concealing information about his lobbying efforts in Ukraine.

Greg Craig worked with Paul Manafort, but the media ignored the story since he was a long-standing Clinton-Obama fixer.

NewsBusters reported that the combined airtime allowed by ABC, CBS and NBC for Greg Craig’s indictment was a whopping one minute and 15 seconds.

NewsBusters pointed out that NBC did not even mention that Greg Craig worked for Obama and Clinton, but that the network was focused on the ties Craig had with Paul Manafort.
