Several investigations, in Congress and the FBI, are underway on this Russian case.
Mr. Trump vehemently denounces and denounces an “unprecedented witch hunt in the history” of the United States. He accuses the FBI and the Department of Justice and the federal police of protecting his former rival in the presidential race, Hillary Clinton.
