Trump was up before you this morning and when on another one of his garden variety preemptive strikes on the media in advance of the first public hearing in regards to the investigation of Trump's election campaign and possible Russian ties. This is the investigation we've all been waiting for.
James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
Classic Trump: Deflect, deflect, deflect.
FBI Director James Comey (above, right) is set to speak before legislators in the House Intelligence Committee in a few hours. Comey is also scheduled to address Trump's "Obama wiretapped me" allegations.
"I hope that we can put an end to this wild goose chase because what the president said was just patently false," said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). Schiff also sits on the panel.
