Default Trump: Russia Story Is "FAKE NEWS & Everyone Knows It!"






Trump: Russia Story Is
FAKE NEWS & Everyone Knows It!





By Cody Derespina Published March 20, 2017 FoxNews.com

Just hours before FBI Director James Comey is set to testify to Congress about alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election, President Trump on Monday morning again vociferously denied that he or his campaign had any involvement with Kremlin operatives in the run-up to the Nov. 8 vote.

Trump referenced recent statements made by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper -- an Obama administration pick -- to back up his denial of any wrongdoing during his upset win over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

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

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

Trump has steadfastly maintained he never worked with Russian agents and has no knowledge of anyone in his orbit doing so. An intelligence report produced in January found that Russian President Vladimir Putin sought to influence the U.S. election in Trump’s favor.

Clapper earlier this month said there was “no evidence” of collusion between Trump and Russia, a position repeated Sunday by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who chairs the House Intelligence Committee that Comey will testify before at 10 a.m. Monday.

But Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member on the House Intelligence Committee, said “circumstantial” evidence existed.

“There is direct evidence, I think, of deception and that’s where we begin the investigation,” Schiff said Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

But despite Schiff's view -- which is shared by many Democrats -- Trump tweeted Monday that Congress should drop the Russia probe and focus on who has been leaking classified and politically damaging stories about his administration.

"The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!" he tweeted.
