Trump fumes over Russia dossier: ‘Crooked Hillary pile of garbage’

President Trump on Tuesday slammed the repudiated Russia dossier that was funded by the Democratic Party and helped fuel investigations into whether his presidential campaign colluded with the Kremlin, calling it a “Crooked Hillary pile of garbage.”

Reacting to news reports about the FBI’s inability to defend the unverified dossier, Mr. Trump expressed his dismay at being targeted in the Justice Department’s Russia probe.

“WOW, @foxandfrlends ‘Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED,’” he wrote on Twitter. “And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!”
