It didn’t take President Trump or his lawyer, Rudy Guliani, very long at all to go on the offensive following Attorney General William Barr’s letter to Congress Sunday stating that nobody in the “Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
President Trump called for an investigation into the “illegal takedown that failed.”
“It was just announced, there was no collusion with Russia. The most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction. None whatsoever. It was a complete and total exoneration,” Trump told reporters.
“It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it’s a shame that your president had to go through this for – before I even got elected, it began. And it began illegally. And hopefully, somebody is gonna look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed, and hopefully, somebody is going to be looking at the other side.”

President Trump called the investigation of him and his advisers "illegal." That is not hyperbole. What the Obama FBI and DOJ pulled was worse than Watergate. AG Barr must now hold the dirty agents to account by impaneling a grand jury investigation of the investigators. #Spygate
