Trump also called out several other television networks - except for Fox News - as well as The New York Times and The Washington Post, and wondered when they, too, would be "caught".

One day earlier, O'Keefe posted video of a CNN producer saying the network's Russian Federation coverage is mostly "bulls--. Those are the facts".

As CNSNews.com reported, CNN issued a retraction for a story published on June 22, "connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations in to the Russian Direct Investment Fund". However, later on, it was found that the story had not been put through the editorial standards of CNN.

Those who resigned were past Pulitzer Prize finalist, Thomas Frank; Lex Haris, veteran editor at the network, and Eric Lichtblau, who was also a Pulitzer nominee. "I think you could take it pretty straightforward that this administration disagrees with all of the stories that claim that the president and his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in any capacity", Sanders said.

CNN on Friday night deleted from its website and all social media the story claiming that Anthony Scaramucci - one of Trump's transition members and a campaign adviser - had met with the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Russia's state-run bank, Vnesheconombank, which is now under U.S. sanctions, oversees the fund. He said in a statement: "On Friday, CNN retracted a story published by my team". In addition, three journalists resigned from the publication after all the outcry. What about the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost? CNN accepted the journalists' resignations Monday.

The cable news outlet, which President Trump refers to as "fake news", is coming under scrutiny after CNN producer John Bonifield stated on camera that the Trump-Russia story is "mostly bullsh*t" and that CNN has "no real proof" that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign to get the president elected, which is a far cry from the official CNN narrative.

The White House promoted the group's video during yesterday's briefing.

Van Jones, a former Obama advisor and top CNN commentator, told an undercover Project Veritas reporter the "Russia thing is just a big nothing burger".
