Clinton Cash author and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer has a message for billionaire provocateur Mark Cuban, who tweeted out a bogus fact-check article against Schweizer’s bestselling book by the far-left blog Media Matters.


Cuban’s Twitter tirade Tuesday started with the Dallas Mavericks owner taking swipes at Donald Trump. Cuban tweeted “‘s misleading claim about Clinton Foundation, Russia and pay-to-play politics,” which linked to a shoddy “fact-check” from politifact.com.

Cuban, however, failed to tweet the 4,000-word, explosive New York Times front page story confirming Schweizer’s Uranium One Russia revelations.

In fact, Cuban failed to tweet the dozens of mainstream media coverage confirming the reporting found on the pages of Clinton Cash.

Had Cuban commenced even a cursory Google search, he would’ve have come across Clinton Cash-confirming stories in The New YorkerThe Wall Street JournalThe New York Times The Washington Post, or CBS News, and ABC News

While it’s unclear what actually sent Cuban on his social media screed, Peter Schweizer told Breitbart News that he isn’t interested in “playing 140 character pattycake on Twitter.”

“Let’s have a real honest to goodness debate,” Schweizer said in an email to Breitbart Tuesday.

“What do you think, Mark Cuban? I’ll debate the facts any place, any time. You pick the place: MSNBC, NPR, Breitbart Radio. You pick it and I’ll show up,” Schweizer said.
