Trump: Media Using Russia Non-Sense To Cover-Up Clinton’s Mistakes, Campaign Loss

President Trump, under fire for his administration’s Russian connections, defended himself Wednesday morning by firing off a series of Twitter messages, Newsmax reported.

The latest controversy regarding the White House and Russia involved Michael Flynn, the national security adviser who resigned Monday night after acknowledging he met with the Russian ambassador to the United States while Barack Obama was still president to discuss economic sanctions the Obama administration imposed on Russia. Flynn also admitted he “misled” Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his talks with the ambassador.

“This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign,” Trump tweeted. “… The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American! … Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?) Just like Russia. … The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!”

The president later wrote: “Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia?” The message apparently was an attempt by Trump to portray himself as being tough on the longtime U.S. adversary. Many of the president’s critics have accused him of having made business deals in Russia and forged a relationship with the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. Trump called Putin a “stronger leader” than Obama. Two of Trump’s top associates, Flynn and former campaign manager Paul Manafort, have had to step down because of their links to Russia.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” asked Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee: “What are the questions Congress needs to get to the bottom of?”

The lawmaker replied: “Joe, it’s hard to know where to start. The base issue is getting to the bottom of what the Russian interference was and what the relationship was with the associates of the Trump effort. That is the big elephant in the room that has got to be dealt with in the most appropriate way.”
