CNN’s Acosta Claims Trump Peddled ‘Fake News’ by Saying ‘3 or 4’ Intel Agencies Agree on Russia Meddling

‘For the president to then go off on CNN as fake news, to me, just made this entire spectacle feel like a fake news conference’

EXCERPT:

ACOSTA: "The other thing that was fake news coming from President Trump, was when he said, well, I -- I keep hearing it's 17 intelligence agencies that say Russia meddled in the election. I think it's only three or four. Where does that number come from? Where's these three or four number come from? My suspicion, Chris and Poppy is if we go to the administration and ask them for this question, I'm not so sure we're going to get an answer. And if we do get an answer, it'll probably be off-camera."
