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."
Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows- there is "no evidence" of collusion w/ Russia and Trump.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017
Sally Yates made the fake media extremely unhappy today --- she said nothing but old news!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017
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?
The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017
Biggest story today between Clapper & Yates is on surveillance. Why doesn't the media report on this? #FakeNews!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017
