President Trump on Friday slammed the New York Times and the Washington Post for their coverage of former Obama administration aide Gregory Craig's indictment. "President Obama's top White House lawyer, Gregory B.
Craig, was indicted yesterday on very serious charges," Trump tweeted.
"This is a really big story, but the Fake News New York Times didn't even put it on page one, rather page 16.
@washingtonpost not much better, 'tiny' page one.
Corrupt News!" According to the Times, Craig was indicted on Thursday for "lying to the Justice Department and concealing information about work he did in 2012 for the government of Ukraine." The charges against him stem from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. In a video posted to YouTube, Craig described those charges as "unprecedented and unjustified" and stated that "both the judge and the jury will agree with me."
