REPORT: Former Obama US attorney apologizes for false claim about Fox News


Former U.S. Attorney under President Barack Obama, Joyce White Vance, who is also an MSNBC contributor, deleted a Sunday tweet that falsely claimed Fox News would not be airing Robert Mueller’s testimony.

“Fox isn’t showing Mueller’s testimony Wednesday. Trump is afraid of what will happen if his base gets to hear Mueller’s testimony for themselves,” Vance tweeted, before quickly scrubbing it.

The article goes on to state the following:

Fox News and most other news networks are planning to broadcast former special counsel Robert Mueller’s expected testimony before Congress on Wednesday, in which he will discuss his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Y’all, a kind friend pointed out my goofy sense of humor doesn’t always translate onto Twitter,” Vance tweeted after users were confused about her false tweet. “I know most of you get the irony by now. It will be interesting to see Fox’s coverage in light of Trump’s statement he won’t be watching the hearing.”

“I’ve deleted an earlier tweet I intended ironically, but that some took as factual regarding Fox news coverage of Mueller’s testimony,” Vance added later on Twitter. “My apologies to anyone I confused. I don’t like to delete tweets but that seems a better course than unintentionally misinforming people.”

Vance served as Alabama’s U.S. Attorney for the Northern District from 2009 to 2017.
