Trump Pleased With Yates Hearing

President Trump appears pleased with what he heard at Monday's Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing with former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Neither Yates nor Clapper could say for certain that Russia had colluded with the Trump transition team last year. 

In a series of tweets, Trump said their testimonies were "old news."

In her testimony, Yates discussed in detail (at least as much as she could without stepping into classified territory) how she warned the Trump White House about Michael Flynn's misconduct before he infamously resigned his post as national security adviser.

Trump posted one more tweet insisting the press is missing the real story in all this talk about Russia: Who did the surveilling and the unmasking?
