Trump Doubles Down On False Murder Accusation Against Joe Scarborough as Twitter Pressured to Act

President Donald Trump has doubled down on his false claim that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdered intern Lori Klausutis hen he was a congressman. In two tweets, Trump reiterated the claim despite the fact that Klaustulis’ husband, T.J. Klausutis, has written a letter to Twitter asking CEO Jack Dorsey to act.

“The opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years, long before I joined the chorus,” Trump tweeted.

“In 2016 when Joe & his wacky future ex-wife, Mika, would endlessly interview me, I would always be thinking about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing?”

“Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?” he said.

T.J. Klausutis wrote a letter to Twitter’s Dorsey on Thursday asking him to do something about Trump’s tweets suggesting his late wife was killed. There is absolutely no evidence to support Trump’s assertion, which he was continued to hammer over the past days.

Twitter later confirmed that it would not be taking down Trump’s tweets insinuating Scarborough was involved in a murder.
