President Donald Trump blasted CNN on Wednesday night, April 29, for not reporting the bombshell involving former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s case but a false story of the president shouting at his campaign manager.

The Department of Justice on Wednesday unsealed court documents showing top FBI officials discussing their motivations for interviewing Flynn in the White House on Jan. 24, 2017, and openly questioned if their “goal” was to “get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”

“@CNN doesn’t want to speak about their persecution of General Michael Flynn & why they got the story so wrong,” President Trump tweeted. “They, along with others, should pay a big price for what they have purposely done to this man & his family. They won’t even cover the big breaking news about this scam!”

The major development in Flynn’s case has not been reported by left-wing media outlets, including CNN, MSNBC, The Hill, and The Associated Press. 

CNN instead persisted with its efforts to paint President Trump as a bad leader, reporting that the president was angry at his campaign manager Brad Parscale over his “sliding poll numbers and the onslaught of criticism he was facing” over his response to the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic, citing “three people familiar with the matter.”

“Shifting the blame away from himself, Trump berated Parscale for a recent spate of damaging poll numbers, even at one point threatening to sue Parscale,” wrote CNN.

The president fired back at the network, calling it “FAKE NEWS.”

“Just told that Fake News @CNN is falsely reporting that I was recently shouting at my campaign manager over made up nonsense. Actually, he is doing a great job, I never shouted at him (been with me for years, including the 2016 win), & have no intention to do so. Just FAKE NEWS!” he wrote.
