"Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History...and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction". According to the report, intelligence officials were investigating Trump campaign associates former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, then-campaign adviser Page, and then-campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos.

President Trump weighed-in on the revelations Thursday, saying we are "now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history".

Just when US President Donald Trump was facing increasing pressure over allegations of his campaign having a collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign and that he repaid his attorney for paying hush money to a porn actress to keep mum about her alleged sexual encounter with the president more than a decade ago, he came up with a new allegation against the administration of his immediate predecessor Barack Obama.

And in a third tweet, Trump said: "Despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt, we have had the most successful first 17 month Administration in United States history - by far!"

Meanwhile, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Mueller's team has told the White House that whatever evidence it comes up with in the Russian meddling probe, it can not indict President Donald Trump. Sorry to the Fake News Media and "Haters", but that's the way it is!

Mr Giuliani has been urging Mr Mueller's team to wrap up the investigation now that the probe has reached the one-year mark.

"We've tortured this president enough", he added, describing the investigation as being "like a big weight" on the president's back. "Maybe a special counsel, special prosecutor, never should have been appointed".
