Trump blasts Russia probe as 'political hoax'
WASHINGTON - (AP) -- President Donald Trump is blasting the investigation into Russian election meddling as "The Greatest Political Hoax of all time!" hours before the long-awaited released of special counsel Robert Mueller's report Thursday.
Trump's first tweet of the day blasted investigators.
Trump tweeted, "Crimes were committed by Crooked, Dirty Cops and DNC/The Democrats," although there is no evidence of that. Trump frequently calls the probe into contacts between his 2016 campaign and Russia a "witch hunt."
After nearly two years of waiting, America will get its first glimpse of Mueller's report later Thursday-- but not before Attorney General William Barr weighs in at a 9:30 a.m. press conference.
A redacted version of the nearly 400-page report will be delivered to Congress on CDs between 11 a.m. and noon and then be posted for the public on the special counsel's website.
