Trump in Twitter blast after report of first charges in Russia collusion probe
President Donald Trump has unleashed new criticism of the investigations into possible ties between his campaign associates and Russia.
Mr Trump - in a series of five tweets - attacked claims of "Trump/Russia 'collusion'" saying it does not exist.
His tweets followed a CNN report that a federal grand jury in Washington has approved the first charges in the criminal investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
The president's tweets said: " Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now 12,000,000 dollars?),.... the Uranium to Russia deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more. Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia,.... "collusion," which doesn't exist. The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's... are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!"
The fifth tweet said: "A ll of this "Russia" talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic Tax Cuts & Reform. Is this coincidental? NOT!"
