It looks to us like a major scandal

It looks to us like a major scandal”

Trump tweeted: "It is now commonly agreed, after many months of COSTLY looking, that there was NO collusion between Russian Federation and Trump".

GOP lawmakers launched probes this week into the 2010 deal, which was struck when Hillary Clinton served as former President Obama's secretary of state, but said an key informant couldn't testify because of a confidentiality agreement with the DOJ.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, on Tuesday said he wanted to know whether senior Obama administration officials, including Clinton, knew that the FBI began investigating an extensive Russian bribery scheme involving kickbacks and that a top Russian nuclear executive was at the center of it.

So far, there is no publicly available evidence that Clinton was aware of Russian efforts or that the FBI investigation uncovered any wrongdoing related to the deal. The transaction breezed through that process, despite the obvious implications of Russian Federation controlling such a large portion of the USA uranium supply.

Nonetheless, White House officials and Trump surrogates outside the administration have relentlessly tried to distract from the Trump-Russia scandal by ginning up new controversies around Clinton. "This was the Democrats coming up with an excuse for losing an election".

Sanders would have you believe that Elias' decision to hire Fusion GPS - a firm that employed Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer who wrote the dossier - is equivalent with the Trump campaign's eagerness to collude with Russian government operatives in an effort to obtain incriminating information about Clinton: an effort we learned about in part because of Donald Trump Jr.'s emails.

Trump allies have also seized on that development in an attempt to deflect attention from the Russian Federation investigations and bolster the suggestion that such investigations are part of a conspiracy by political rivals to delegitimize Trump's presidency.

On Saturday morning - hours after news of Mueller's first charges became public - former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski took the level of delusion up a notch by pretending that it was in fact Clinton who had won the election, not Trump.

Trump said he thinks the name will "probably be revealed" eventually.

"Now, having said that, we still don't know about Robert Mueller, the investigation", Wallace continued. Both things could be true that both sides were trying to get aid from the Russians and it certainly seems true that Russians were playing both sides to try to disrupt the election.

The president attached to his tweet a video featuring a quote from the op-ed, followed by an image of Clinton's recently published campaign postmortem, "What Happened".
