Donald Trump: House panel should investigate Hillary Clinton, not me

Donald Trump: House panel should investigate Hillary Clinton, not me

He made the comments in a series of tweets. Furthermore, in his latest tweets on Monday evening, Trump wrote that the "Trump Russia story is a hoax".

For good measure, Trump also urged his followers to watch Fox News this morning, in advance of a segment on Russian Federation and Clinton's former campaign chairman.

This is the issue that underlies the entire campaign over Trump's alleged ties with Russian Federation, which has been concocted from anonymous and unverified leaks from the military-intelligence apparatus to the New York Times and Washington Post. In the first place, even Nunes did not allege that Obama did anything wrong or that Trump himself was the target of a wiretap.

"Hillary Clinton gave them 20 per cent of our uranium - gave Russian Federation for a big payment", he said at a 2016 rally, echoing his tweets this March. He repeated the same charge during a confrontational White House news conference on February 16.

The charges stem from Peter Schweizer's book Clinton Cash and an April, 2015 New York Times article. The uranium line refers to Russia's nuclear power agency being allowed to buy the controlling stake of a Canadian mine company that also has USA operations, reports Politico.

"Why was Bill Clinton taking any money from a bank linked to the Kremlin while his wife was Secretary of State?" asks the liberal publication.

In yet a fourth tweet, he assured the country that Democrats will make a deal with him - despite baselessly attacking Clinton minutes before.

Trump followed up by accosting the House Freedom Caucus of conservative Republicans for their role in the failure of the Obamacare replacement bill.

And by going after the House Freedom Caucus, he's asking for trouble from a large group of House Republicans that's already showed it can scuttle legislation when it's not up to their standards.

It's a dumb move, not only because the allegations are foolish, but also because the more focus there is on Russian ties, the worse it is for Trump and his team.

Later Monday, Trump tweeted that Obama care "will fold", without offering any evidence why.

"We haven't heard very much from Podesta lately, particularly on the subject of Russia's interference in the elections", Waurishuk told the Daily Caller.
