“A Hoax”: Trump Denies Nuclear Weapons Report, Likens To Steele Dossier

Former President Donald Trump on Friday called a Thursday report in WaPo that he took classified documents related to nuclear weapons “a hoax,” and compared it to the FBI’s use of the discredited ‘Steele Dossier’ – a notorious fabrication used during and after the 2016 US election to discredit Trump as a Russian asset.

“Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more,” Trump wrote on Truth Social, adding “Same sleazy people involved.”

“Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s [sic], or others present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close — said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.”

“Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer Steele Dossier!”

On Thursday, Trump demanded the “immediate release” of materials related to the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence.

“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents, even though they have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years…” Trump said in a Thursday night post on Truth Social.

Meanwhile, Twitter is full of hot takes and reactions…
