Pres Trump asks State Dept. to release remaining Clinton emails

Pres Trump asks State Dept. to release remaining Clinton emails”

As news this week broke about the role of Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC funding the infamous Steele Dossier on President Trump, denials by Clinton about the document's existence raised many eyebrows.

President Trump on Friday claimed that it is "commonly agreed" that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation - but Hillary Clinton did. Was collusion with HC!' he said.

This news is coming out in the wake of another CNN report saying the President wants the gag order lifted on an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant in the Uranium One case.

Trump and other Republicans have seized on revelations that Clinton's campaign and Democrats funded part of a dossier containing salacious claims about Trump.

Fackcheck.org found no direct ties to the donations to the Clinton Foundation or Bill Clinton's speaking fee and the Uranium One deal that Hillary Clinton had a say in as secretary of state.

The report in Politico did not claim that Trump's campaign had been or would ultimately be cleared.

Republicans, who have spent months on defense amid allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, jumped back into an attack posture.

The White House sounded Friday like it was having a good laugh at the mainstream news media for wasting money on its coverage of Trump campaign associates' ties to Russian Federation.

Trump appeared to be referring to the billowing scandal when he referenced Clinton by her initials in a tweet this morning on Russian collusion. The DNC has vehemently denied any collusion with the Ukrainian government.

Democrats' allegations of Trump's "collusion" with Russian Federation to somehow subvert the 2016 election have led to the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who participated in the Trump campaign, and the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel.

"I think we are seeing now that if there was any collusion with Russian Federation, it was between the DNC and Clintons, and certainly not our campaign", she said.

Reported by CNN, Trump's interest in the release of Hillary emails was described as commitment to "transparency" by the sources.

The allegations and attacks against Clinton mark a return to the tried-and-true GOP attack playbook of raising suspicion about Clinton's actions.

But denials came from the Clinton camp and even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who said she was also "not aware" of anything related to the research project, despite the fact that the campaign and the DNC paid millions to fund it. "There's at least a perception that Democrats and the Clinton campaign lied about this - that this is very Clinton-esque".
