Trump crit­i­cal of Rus­sia in­quiry

The Daily Courier - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump ex­pressed re­newed frus­tra­tion Sun­day over the in­ves­ti­ga­tions into al­leged ties be­tween his cam­paign as­so­ci­ates and Rus­sian gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, say­ing on Twit­ter that the “facts are pour­ing out” about links to Rus­sia by his for­mer pres­i­den­tial op­po­nent, Hil­lary Clin­ton.

“DO SOME­THING!” Trump urged in one of five morn­ing tweets.

Trump’s tweets fol­lowed a CNN re­port late Fri­day that a fed­eral grand jury in Wash­ing­ton has ap­proved the first charges in a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Rus­sia ties led by spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller.

Trump and the White House in­sist there was no col­lu­sion be­tween his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign and Rus­sia. Both have pointed a fin­ger at Clin­ton and have sug­gested that the real story of col­lu­sion with Rus­sia is the sale of ura­nium to Moscow when Clin­ton was sec­re­tary of state.

U.S. in­tel­li­gence agen­cies have con­cluded that Rus­sia in­ter­fered with the elec­tion to ben­e­fit Trump, a find­ing that Trump has not fully ac­cepted. Mueller and Congress are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
