From Business Insider:
Amid President Donald Trump’s blistering tweetstorm Sunday morning after special counsel Robert Mueller announced a fresh round of indictments on Friday, several prominent Democrats and Republicans had some tough words for the president.
Trump’s lengthy string of tweets included support for the conspiracy theory that the Russia investigation distracted the FBI from tips about the Florida shooter, claims that he never said Russia hadn’t meddled in the election (he did), and attacks on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, whom Trump called “the leakin’ monster of no control.”
The president also reiterated a point he has made after nearly every revelation in the Russia probe — that despite the mounting indictments in the investigation, there is still no evidence against him, and that the probe vindicates him.
On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Schiff, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, pushed back on Trump’s self-congratulatory rhetoric.
“This is a president who claims vindication anytime someone sneezes,” Schiff told host Dana Bash. “What this indictment sets out is information about only one element of the Russian active measures campaign — that involving their use of social media to influence attitudes, to motivate people to protest, to essentially infiltrate our political system through the cyber sphere.”
