Trump lobs bizarre tweet claiming ‘not-as-crooked-as-Hillary’ New York Times vindicated him in Russia probe

Published

President Donald Trump on Sunday claimed that The New York Times had vindicated him in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“Things are really getting ridiculous,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!”

It was not immediately clear which New York Times report the president was referring to.

A May 16 report reviewed the origins of the Russia probe, but it did not offer any conclusions about the investigation. More recently, the paper disputed Trump’s assertion that the FBI planted an informant inside his campaign

NBC's Josh Lederman reported that senators will now no longer have to vote to admit each piece of evidence. Instead, evidence will automatically be admitted unless there is an objection.

McConnell's original rules also gave House managers two days for opening remarks. Changes to the rules will allow up to three days for both sides, reports said.

At the last minute, a change to this provision: House evidence now will be admitted automatically unless there's an objection, rather than requiring a pro-active vote to admit it https://t.co/F0O1c6jg0o

President Donald Trump may be out of the country on official business, but his mind was back in Washington on his impeachment trial.

The president tweeted out one of his catchphrases as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivered a point-by-point rebuttal to Republican defenses of Trump's actions and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's efforts to rush through an acquittal.
