Trump claims memo “vindicates” him in Mueller probe

Donald Trump broke silence on Twitter about the GOP-Nunes memo following its release on Friday claiming that it vindicates him in the Russia probe, and once again turned it into an opportunity to deny any alleged obstruction and collusion with Russia.

“This memo totally vindicates “Trump” in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!” Trump tweeted on Saturday morning.

The partisan document—which has been described as “worse than a nothing burger”— was released by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and provided little insightful information, leading some to speculate that the GOP might be trying to create a distraction from the Russia probe. The report argued that the Steele dossier was biased; Trump approved the classified document to be released on Friday.

To further add to the memo’s probable illegitimacy, Nunes made an appearance on FOX News “Special Report,” with Bret Baier on Friday to talk about its release.

“I have an obligation to the American people when we see FISA abuse,” Nunes said in the interview. “These are secret courts that exist to target for foreigners, for catching terrorists, for catching people who might be bad actors and the American citizens that are represented before this court have to be protected, and the only place that can protect them is the U.S. Congress when abuses do occur.”
