And in another tweet, he stated: "Hillary Clinton's Emails, many of which are Classified Information, got hacked by China".
Unnamed sources told The Daily Caller that a Chinese firm operating out of the D.C. area was able to gain access to Mrs. Clinton's email server and read her communications in real time. Of course, such a scandal in the Trump administration would barely make a splash in the frantic news cycle, but conservative news outlets have covered the issue ferociously for years.
The report also accuses fired Federal Bureau of Investigation official Peter Strzok of failing to investigate the issue despite reportedly having knowledge of the breach in 2015.
A June report from the Justice Department's inspector general on the FBI's handling of the Clinton investigation said FBI specialists did not find evidence that the server had been hacked, with one forensics agent saying he felt 'fairly confident that there wasn't an intrusion'.
Further adding to the weird spectacle, Trump tweeted Wednesday morning: "When you see 'anonymous source, ' stop reading the story, it is fiction!"
The FBI and the DOJ did not immediately respond to Fox News early Wednesday for comment.

During a July 12 House Committee on the Judiciary hearing, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) disclosed that the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that virtually all of Clinton's emails from her homebrew server were funneled to a "foreign entity." But, he added: "Given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence".
Hua also denied on Wednesday that China was building a military base in far-eastern Afghanistan after a report published by the South China Morning Post alleged that Beijing was constructing a counterterrorism-focused facility near its border but inside the war-torn Islamic republic.
"This isn't the first time that we've heard this kind of accusation", China's foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular news briefing. "We firmly oppose and crack down on any forms of internet attacks and the stealing of secrets". She said China is a staunch defender of cybersecurity.
