Trump rubbishes Russian link, urges HIC to probe Hillary-Bill deal

Lost in the flurry of baseless allegations from a president who takes his talking points from conspiracy theories floated on Fox News is the investigation by the FBI of Trump's involvement with Russian Federation, of course. He made the comments in a series of tweets.

The events of the last few days haven't exactly kept the Trump-Russia story out of the news or soothed concerns about the number and depth of connections.

He also demanded an investigation into the Russian money for Bill's conferences, Hillary's praise for Russia or the Russian company Podesta.

Trump seemed to deflection from accusations of Russian collusion by pointing to the many interactions between the Clintons and the Russians.

Ted Deutch, the top Democrat on the House Ethics Committee, is now calling for an independent inquiry into alleged ties between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's campaign. However, the Times noted, "those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors". In a campaign rally in 2016, he was quoted as saying: "Hillary Clinton gave them 20 percent of our uranium - gave Russian Federation for a big payment". He repeated the same charge during a confrontational White House news conference on February 16.

Hero MP is no stranger to terrorism
The alleged attacker is believed ot have hit pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before running into the entrance of Parliament. . Tobias Ellwood, Conservative MP for Bournemouth East, was seen performing CPR on the officer in the grounds of Parliament.

About 10 hours later, "Fox and Friends" hosted the author of "Clinton Cash" to explore those claims, and Trump once again took to Twitter - this time to hype the TV news segment as it aired. The uranium line refers to Russia's nuclear power agency being allowed to buy the controlling stake of a Canadian mine company that also has U.S. operations, reports Politico.

As for Bill Clinton's speaking fees, the Post cites The Wall Street Journal, and reported "that a review of Bill Clinton's speeches 'found no evidence that speaking fees were paid to the former president in exchange for any action by Mrs. Clinton'". Hillary Clinton was then serving as the secretary of state and was a part of the panel that approved the deal in 2015. The fact-checking website Politifact has dubbed the allegations of impropriety against Clinton in the this matter "mostly false". Today, Trump stayed the course while reminding everyone which morning show he watches the most.

The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Even some congressional Republicans described his actions as "bizarre", and Nunes later apologized to the members of his committee at another closed-door session.

Though some dismiss the presidential tweets as a collective distraction, Trump's words have an impact on everything from ongoing investigations to confirmation hearings to federal court cases to his top aides' policymaking and messaging.

He also shared that once the Affordable Care Act "folds", Democrats will be running to make a deal with him.
