President Trump said Saturday that a memo on FBI surveillance abuses released by House Republicans “totally vindicates” him in the investigation into Russian meddling and collusion in the 2016 election.
“This memo totally vindicates ‘Trump‘ in probe,” the president tweeted. “But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on.”
The president said there was “no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead).”
“This is an American disgrace!” Mr. Trump said.
Special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly is focusing on possible obstruction of justice, including Mr. Trump’s firing last year of FBI Director James B. Comey.
The president gave his views on the matter a day after Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released the four-page memo detailing the FBI’s reliance on a partisan, anti-Trump dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to apply for surveillance warrants against a Trump campaign aide in 2016.
