    Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, leaves federal court in New York, Thursday, April 26, 2018.

    President Donald Trump attacked NBC News after it corrected a story that said federal investigators had placed a wiretap on the phone lines of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

    Trump said on Twitter Friday: "NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite “sources” which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably don’t exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!"

    NBC News attributed its story Thursday to two anonymous sources with knowledge of legal proceedings against Cohen. In its correction, the network said it subsequently learned that the feds were only monitoring the source of calls and weren't listening in. NBC News changed its headline and revised parts of the original article. 

    Trump has frequently criticized the media for "fake news" involving stories he doesn't like.

The revelations of Trump's reimbursement came from former mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now part of Trump's outside legal team, during a Fox News interview Wednesday night.
