“President Trump, fresh off what he claims was ‘total vindication’ in the special counsel’s Russia investigation, told supporters here Thursday he had vanquished a corrupt cabal of Democrats, the news media and the Washington elite, who tried to nullify his historic election victory by painting him as an agent of Russia,” the New York Times reports.
Said Trump: “After three years of lies and smears and slander, the Russia hoax is finally dead. The collusion delusion is over.”
“In his first rally since the end of the 22-month investigation, the president gleefully disregarded the old saw about revenge being a dish best served cold. He came onstage hot and served up one scorching zinger after another, taking particular delight in ridiculing Rep. Adam B. Schiff of California, who oversees the House Intelligence Committee, and other Democrats who have led calls to investigate Mr. Trump.”Save to Favorites
