In 2018, the Pulitzer Prize committee awarded the Washington Post and New York Times awards in journalism for their reporting on the now-proven false claim that there was a link between the Trump campaign and Putin’s Kremlin.
Trump called for the revocation of that award during his time in office, saying then via Twitter that it was “So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100% NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia – And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt?In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!”
Now, in the wake of further reporting showing that the link was not there, and that there was no collusion, as well as the indictment of Michael Sussmann, a Clinton attorney, Trump has again called for the pulling of the prizes.
The server that was at the center of the alleged probe was not one belonging to Trump or his organizations, but was “was administered by a mass marketing email company,” Fox News reported.
