This tactic worked for him in that he became our president after living the "birther" lie about Obama for four years.
We do not know what is worse.
No, this crisis won't go away anytime soon and has the potential to derail the president's agenda. That revelation only coming out now is sure to anger the Clinton campaign, which believes Comey's letter to Congress about the Clinton email investigation contributed to Clinton's election loss. His announcement at that point in the campaign was highly unusual, as was his testimony on Monday.
Earlier, CNN reported that Trump associates may indeed have had communications with the Russians during the 2016 elections that led to damaging information about the Hillary Clinton campaign. We should wait until the FBI investigation is complete before making any firm accusations.
"This is not an attempt to relitigate the 2016 presidential election". On Feb. 13, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump's choice for national security adviser, resigned after it was revealed that he had provided misleading information about his contact with a Russian ambassador in January.
Until now, there has been no public acknowledgement from USA lawmakers or the intelligence community of concrete evidence tying Trump or his associates to collusion with the Kremlin.
Given the close ties between what Trump tweets and conservative media reports, it's likely that story is the root of his tweet. The Trump campaign has repeatedly denied any such misconduct.
Asked whether @POTUS' Twitter commentary was accurate, Comey clarified that "it certainly wasn't our intention to say that today because we don't have any information on that subject".
The FBI director was clear: The agency has no information that Obama wiretapped Trump.
At least seven people in the Trump campaign have admitted having some sort of contact with the Russians during the campaign.
Grey said "the idea that somehow Obama picks up the phone and asks GCHQ to get involved just isn't how it works", adding that, for GCHQ, to "get involved and mixed up in United States politics would be disastrous". "But at the end of the day, they're gonna come to the same conclusion that everybody else had", Press Secretary Sean Spicer said".
