President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for an investigation into an unfounded conspiracy theory about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and the death of a former employee.
Trump has tweeted several times in recent weeks about the baseless theory that Scarborough was involved in the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, who worked for him when he was a U.S. representative from Florida.
“A blow to her head? Body found under his desk? Left Congress suddenly? Big topic of discussion in Florida…and he’s a Nut Job (with bad ratings). Keep digging, use forensic geniuses!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
He added: “A lot of interest in this story about Psycho Joe Scarborough. So a young marathon runner just happened to faint in his office, hit her head on his desk, & die? I would think there is a lot more to this story than that? An affair? What about the so-called investigator?”
Klausutis was 28 when she died in July 2001 in Scarborough’s Florida office, where she worked as a constituent services coordinator.
