'Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia, "collusion", which doesn't exist, ' Trump wrote. The Dems are using this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics", Trump said, adding that, meanwhile, the Republicans are "now fighting back like never before.

"There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton", Trump alleged, "and now the facts are pouring out".

'All of this "Russia" talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic Tax Cuts & Reform. "Is this coincidental? NOT!"

On Sunday, Trump went after Mueller's investigation again.

"Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?)", Trump said first in a series of tweets.

"This president won the election exclusively on the idea that he connected with the American people". "But the idea of what I've watched, of what the Democrats have been doing, it sure raises a lot of questions".

He added that if he "were to guess" who instigated the investigation, "I have one name in mind" - but declined to say who he was thinking of. "The result will be known by the facts, by what he uncovers". "Give the guy a chance to do his job", he said.

According to a Washington Post report citing people familiar with the matter, Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC both contributed funding for research that culminated in the infamous dossier.

The 35-page dossier is composed of 17 memos containing raw intelligence, some of it highly salacious and not independently confirmed.

Collins said the committee should further question John Podesta and Debbie Wasserman Schultz after the disclosures about the dossier's funding. It's impossible to tell from the filings how much of that work was for other legal matters and how much of it related to Fusion GPS.

The origins of the dossier, compiled by a former British spy during the 2016 presidential election campaign, have roiled Washington since BuzzFeed News published it in January. The Beacon said in a statement that its research ended before Fusion GPS hired Steele and that none of the research that it commissioned is included in the dossier.

"To assist in its representation of the DNC and Hillary for America, Perkins Coie engaged Fusion GPS in April of 2016, to perform a variety of research services during the 2016 election cycle", a spokesman for Perkins Coie, a law firm retained by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, wrote in a letter obtained by ABC News.

Known as the Steele dossier because it was compiled by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, the document identified Russian businessmen and others whom USA intelligence analysts have concluded are Russian intelligence officers or working on behalf of the Russian government.

The claim was made to the House Intelligence Committee on Friday, people briefed on the meeting told The New York Times.

Meanwhile, just one week after her Republican colleague Sen. How much of it is true?

Schiff said he has not been told anything about any impending indictments in Mueller's investigation, noting that such notification would not have been appropriate.

Last week Trump labeled the deal, which gave Russia 20 per cent of the U.S.'s uranium to Russia, 'Watergate modern age'.

Trump and his associates are also pointing to a uranium deal approved by Hillary Clinton, among other government officials, while she was serving as secretary of state. The company can not export the uranium.

The president was also reviving unproved allegations that Clinton was part of a quid pro quo in which the Clinton Foundation received donations in exchange for her support as secretary of state for a business deal that gave Russian Federation control over a large share of uranium production in the United States.

Mr Trump also railed against the decision by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey - who he fired in May - not to bring criminal charges against Mrs Clinton for possible mishandling of classified information.
