Trump: Russian Non-Sense Being Used To Cover-Up Clinton’s Mistakes, Campaign Loss

President Trump, continuing to deny he has close links with Russia, is blaming the allegation on intelligence officials and the news media.

Newsmax reported that the president launched a Twitter storm Wednesday morning, defending himself against ongoing charges that he and some members of his administration have conflicts of interest because of their business relationships in Russia. Trump, who refutes claims that he and Russian leader Vladimir Putin have a cozy relationship, tweeted: “Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia?”

According to a former British spy, Putin is holding embarrassing financial and personal information about Trump that he could use as blackmail. The CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Putin ordered last year’s cyberattacks on Democratic officials’ computers. Federal investigators said the Russian strongman was trying to help Trump win the election.

The president wrote that “this Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.” He added: “Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtontpost by the intelligence community. NSA and FBI? Just like Russia.”

Trump began the morning by proclaiming: “The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!” Later in the day, the president tweeted that “the real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy; very un-American!”

Referring to the writer who agreed with him Tuesday night on Sean Hannity’s Fox New show, Trump wrote: “Thank you to Eli Lake of The Bloomberg View. The NSA & FBI … should not interfere in our politics … and is very serious situation for USA.”

Two of Trump’s aides have been forced to resign because of their ties to Russia. Former campaign manager Paul Manafort once served as an adviser to a pro-Putin Ukrainian official. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn stepped down earlier this week after admitting he met with a Russian ambassador before Trump became president to discuss relaxing economic sanctions.
