Minutes After Russian Lawyer Bombshell Trump Fires Off Angry Tweet Demanding Russia Probe To ‘END NOW!’
Just minutes after the New York Times reported that the Russian lawyer at the Trump tower meeting is actually an informant for the Russian government, President Trump sent off a raging tweet declaring the Russia investigation “MUST END NOW.”
“Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!” Trump tweeted on Friday.
Trump’s message followed a congressional GOP report saying his campaign did not collude with Moscow to interfere in the 2016 election.
It found “no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government.” But the report does criticize the Trump campaigns for “poor judgment and ill-considered actions” in their dealings with Russia-related figures.
Democrats on the Intelligence panel refused to endorse the report, calling the committee’s investigation a sham that was biased in favor of Trump.
Critics of the president fear he might use the report to stymie the federal probe into Russia’s election interference, including firing the special counsel leading it, Robert Mueller, or his supervisor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
