President Donald Trump reportedly interrupted a scheduled Intelligence meeting on Wednesday to tweet about FBI messages that supposedly vindicated him in Russian probe.
Early this week, FBI agent text messages released were blown up by conservative news stations as proof that former President Barack Obama planned to spy on then-candidate Trump.
And although Trump was supposed to be in a meeting to receive sensitive intelligence information during an 11 a.m ET briefing, he halted the meeting to text about the FBI messages.
He tweeted: “NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!”
NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!

Looks like Trump was caught playing on the internet when he should be focusing on his meeting with intelligence officials to better the country. Apparently, Trump thinks he has better things to do than be the President of the U.S.
