According to the latest report on Thursday, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign manager, is expected to testify before the Congress regarding his role in Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 United States presidential elections.
Today in presidential concern-trolling: President Trump feigns outrage over what happened in the Democratic primary in order to discuss something other than Russia, or healthcare, or Russian healthcare. "Is she allowed to so collude?"
US President Donald Trump says he shouldn't be the only one under the microscope for alleged collusion during the 2016 election campaign. "Unfair to Bernie!" President Trump tweeted, seemingly defending the senator just weeks after calling him "Crazy Bernie Sanders".
The tweet is an apparent reference to a cache of almost 20,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails released by WikiLeaks almost one year ago that Sanders' supporters' said bolstered their claims that the party favoured Clinton.
Podesta's hacked email account became central to Russian meddling in the U.S. election previous year and embarrassment for Clinton in the heat of the campaign season.
CNN reported the meeting will take place sometime next week. "But nobody wants to talk about that", Trump said.
In a series of tweets earlier this week Trump criticized the Obama administration's handling of the Russian election hacking.
On Friday and Saturday, President Trump turned to Twitter to lash out at Obama administration officials for not taking stronger action against Russian election meddling - despite having disputed for months that such meddling had occurred.
"I don't think they're that far off - you know, famous last words - but I think we are going to get there", he said.
