Three seasoned journalists at CNN have resigned after the network retracted a story investigating links between a Russian investment fund and an American financier and adviser to President Donald Trump.
The CNN story in question was removed from CNN.com last week and replaced with an editor's note that explained: "On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund".
CNN said the story didn't meet its editorial standards.

Joe Concha discussed CNN's reporting on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" after the company had to correct two stories related to the the current investigation into Russian Federation meddling during the presidential campaign. In their statement, CNN had stated that the story that had been published had come from an anonymous source and they do not believe that the reporters falsified the story. He lumped ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times and The Washington Post together in the same "fake news" category.
President Trump has repeatedly lashed out with insults to defend himself as the Russian Federation investigation unfolds. "CNN apologises to Mr Scaramucci". The retracted story had said the Senate investigations committee was looking into a January 16 discussion between Scaramucci and Kirill Dmitriev, whose Russian Direct Investment Fund guides investments by US entities in Russia. After one of the subjects of the piece, Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci, threatened a lawsuit, it was retracted and an apology was issued.
