Trump's Monday Morning Tweetstorm: Surveillance, John Podesta, and Hillary Clinton

As PolitiFact said of Trump's tweets a few days ago on the same subject - Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Uranium to Russia - "Trump is downplaying reality here".

WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump went after Hillary Clinton on Twitter Monday, bringing the amount of times that Trump has attacked his former rival and her campaign staff on social media to six times in the past week.

Trump's tweet comes as the FBI investigates potential collusion between Trump's campaign team and the Russian government amid the presidential election.

Emails hacked by Wikileaks revealed that former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile leaked the questions to Clinton before debating her primary opponent Sen.

Trump's administration has repeatedly said that the focus of the investigation into Russian Federation should be on who was responsible for unmasking the names of Trump associates, rather than any connections between the campaign and a foreign power that interfered in the election.

He also questioned whether or not the brother of Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta, had received money to help lift Russian sanctions and asked if Clinton knew about it. "Spied on before nomination".

The President's tweet tirade followed a Fox News segment in which "Fox and Friends" aired a clip of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who spoke with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.

Last year's presidential election came to a close when Donald Trump secured the necessary number of electoral votes - 270 - in the early hours of the morning on November 9, 2016.

That all changed early Monday morning when President Trump took to Twitter to call out Clinton for not apologizing after she received questions before the debate, writing, "Did Hillary Clinton ever apologize for receiving the answers to the debate?"

The president has since suggested that by "wiretapping" he meant surveillance in a broader sense.
