    Don't believe everything you see on Twitter.

    Reps. Elijah Cummings and Nancy Pelosi fell for a Twitter account parodying Michael Flynn, who resigned Monday as President Trump's national security adviser for misleading the administration about his contacts with Russia.

    "I believe we need to hold a public hearing with Flynn to get to the bottom of this," Cummings said during a news conference on Capitol Hill, citing the parody tweet.

    Pelosi said, "The inference to be drawn from his statement is that other people had blame that should be shared in all of this."

    The tweets came from an unverified account that launched this month. It has since been labeled a parody account by multiple news outlets and Snopes.

    Along the same lines, a Russian comedian called California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and identified himself as the prime minister of Ukraine.

    Now, Maxine Waters is one of those who called for Flynn to be arrested for “negotiating” with the Russian ambassador while the Trump administration was still in transition.

    However, she was perfectly willing to discuss things with someone she believed to be the prime minister of Ukraine.

    This isn't even funny. The same guy hit John McCain, also posting as the prime minister of Ukraine, and McCain's conversation comes very close to being treasonous. Certainly, a US Senator is not empowered to negotiate with a foreign government, particularly not to the detriment of the sitting president. I'm serious when I say that there should be calls for his resignation.
