Obama colluding with RussiansPresident Trump on Monday launched a pre-emptive Twitter strike against any suggestion he colluded with Russia to beat Hillary Clinton, just hours before top federal officials were set to testify in the House over Russia’s meddling in the election.

“James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!” Trump tweeted, referring to himself in the third person.

“The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost! The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into [who] is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!”
