The president defended himself and his campaign by reasserting that he has never colluded with Russia — not during his presidential bid and not after the election.

Trump also repeated his request for an investigation into the leaks that have continuously emerged from the White House since Trump took the oath of office less than 100 days ago.

According to Mediaite, the tweets may be an effort by Trump to get ahead of any future investigations by Congress regarding his relationship with the Russian government, especially since FBI Director James Comey will be testifying Monday about allegations — made by Trump himself — that Comey’s department wiretapped Trump Tower by direction of Barack Obama during the 2016 campaign.
