Trump, White House pushing back on Russia investigation

Written by  CBS News

WASHINGTON -- President Trump ignored yet another question about his baseless wiretap claim on Monday at a White House photo op.

But he couldn’t keep quiet Twitter even before the House Intelligence Committee hearing into Russian election meddling began.

Mr. Trump wrote there was “no evidence” of Trump campaign collusion with Russian operatives, calling the narrative “fake news” that Democrats “made up” after they lost the election.

James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!

The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!
