MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell had a sorry excuse for why she hasn’t covered a story about the Clinton Foundation receiving kickbacks from Russian officials.
President Donald Trump accused the “Fake Media” of refusing to follow developments in the scandal. The Hill released a report on Tuesday that alleges the FBI buried evidence of Russian kickbacks to the Clinton Foundation as then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved a uranium deal with a state-owned Russian company.

Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want to follow!

Andrea Mitchell, who hosts her own show on MSNBC and is the chief foreign correspondent for NBC News, claimed that she hasn’t been ignoring the story because she covered it “some years ago.”
“President Trump, at the end there, talking about a story we did do on NBC some years ago,” Mitchell defended.
Rich Noyes, a research director for the Media Research Center, says that coverage was two years ago and only lasted 92 seconds.
