U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday called on the Congress and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to investigate the leaks of classified information.
Trump took to his Twitter handle and accused his predecessor Barack Obama and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, saying that the claims of his collusion with Russia are just "fake news."
The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
Trump also accused the Democratic Party for fabricating the allegations of his links to Russia as an excuse for running a terrible campaign.
The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
Trump also questioned Hillary Clinton's alleged contacts with the Russians and accused the Democratic Party for not letting the FBI look into the matter.
What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
This tweets comes after U.S. House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said on Sunday that there was no evidence of any links between Russia and the Trump campaign.
