President Donald Trump has called the FBI’s investigation into alleged ‘Russian collusion’ a “coup” attempt, and said he wants Attorney General William Barr to investigate the probe’s origins.
“It was an illegal investigation, it was started illegally, everything about it was crooked,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “It was an attempted coup.”
He also said that he himself hadn’t seen or read the report on alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 election presented by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“I won,” he said. “There was no collusion, no obstruction.”
I’m not sure people fully appreciate what’s going on.
The 85th United States Attorney General said this morning he thinks that Trump’s campaign was spied on and that he believe there’s a basis to investigate whether unauthorized surveillance occurred”.
Judicial Watch President @TomFitton discussed the Trump coup in his Weekly Update: It was all based on this fraudulent dossier created by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign, secretly of course. It was known that the dossier had no credibility. pic.twitter.com/84rKHfsTuy
