Trump said 'Twitter, Facebook and Google are burying' the FBI investigation. Are they?


Donald Trump said Sunday morning Twitter, Facebook and Google were "burying" the FBI's investigation into emails that may be tied to the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Trump has insisted the media is part of a conspiracy to rig the election against him as his poll numbers declined. 

Here's the Trump tweet in question.

It's not clear what Trump is basing this claim on. This reporter Googled "Clinton FBI" and found nearly 69 million results, many of them from major news organizations like CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Similarly, "James Comey" was one of the top trending topics on Facebook as of about 11 a.m. Sunday. 

However, some Twitter users are reporting #GoHillary is an "artificial trend."

There does not appear to be evidence for this claim either aside from other Twitter users.

Trump also attacked Clinton for criticizing Comey.

He also bragged about polls he recently said were rigged.
