Although Trump keeps saying that the Russian interference did not impact the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, he conceals the fact that the U.S. intelligence agencies never tried to know the impact on election results.

Instead of waiting for the outcome of the investigation being done by the special counsel Robert Mueller to probe Trump-Russia ties, President Trump keeps issuing bizarre statements on Twitter.

He has repeatedly blamed his bête noire Hillary Clinton, Democrats, American media, justice system, dissenting Republicans, and FBI for the ongoing investigation against him. Today, once again Trump’s target is his predecessor Barack Obama.

Trump questioned why Obama Administration started an investigation into the Trump campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the election in November.

He added that it was an attempt to discredit him so that Hillary Clinton could win. Trump used his usual vulgar language for Hillary Clinton. Trump also said that it was a bigger scandal than Watergate (a political scandal that took place in the early 1970s) while Obama did nothing about Russian meddling.

While the Mueller investigation to probe Trump-Russia ties is in progress, Trump keeps screaming every now and then that there was no collusion with Russia.

Meanwhile, according to NBC News, Mueller has sent a subpoena seeking all documents involving Trump and a slew of his associates in the Trump campaign.

Although Trump keeps saying that the Russian interference did not impact the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, he deliberately conceals the fact that the U.S. intelligence agencies never tried to know the impact on election results.

As part of an ethical practice in a democracy, the agencies did not want to assess the voters’ opinion. But that does not mean that the Russian meddling did not change the election result. Rather, it is largely believed that Russians helped Trump win and Trump campaign was aware of this fact.

Meanwhile, an online petition on a dedicated “Need to Impeach” website claims that it has collected more than 5 million signatures of Americans who want impeachment of Trump.
