US President Trump is encouraging Republican Party lawmakers and “real Americans” to start “getting tough” on the US government’s investigation over alleged ties between his election campaign and Russia, calling the federal probe a “scam.”
Trump took to Twitter again on Sunday, attacking the credibility of the US Justice Department’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is leading the Russia investigation.
“Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party,” Trump tweeted.
“Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam,” Trump said in another tweet.
The investigation, which is aimed at determining possible “collusion” between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian government elements, is now more than a year old.
