Trump slams Clintons, 'hoax' Russia story in Twitter tirade

President Trump tweeted up a storm on Monday night — blasting the House Intelligence Committee for not investigating the Clintons and also declaring the “Trump Russia story” a “hoax.”

The tirade came amid reports that Rep. Devin Nunes, who is head of the House Intelligence Committee, had secretly visited the White House a day before announcing that members of Team Trump had “incidentally” been caught in surveillance by US agencies.

“Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian ‘reset,’ praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!” the president wrote in a pair of tweets.

Democratic lawmakers have been calling on Nunes — who is under fire for briefing Trump about classified material — to recuse himself from the committee’s ongoing probe into Russia’s interference in the US election.

The congressman claims the information had absolutely no relevance to the Russia probe.
