US President Donald Trump used Twitter on 26 December to attack his perceived "tainted" opponents in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the "crooked Hillary" campaign funded by the Democratic National Committee, over the unproven allegations contained in so-called "dirty dossier". "And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!" FBI CANNOT (after all this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.
Trump was referring to a dossier, presumably harmful to his reputation, compiled previous year by a private investigator and paid for, in part, by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign team.
"WOW", Trump tweeted, tagging and apparently quoting his favorite show "Fox and Friends" Tuesday.
Trump habitually tweets about "Fox & Friends" as the morning show airs and often includes the program's handle in his tweets.
Russia Ready to Be Mediator between US, North Korea
North Korea's foreign ministry on Sunday slammed the latest round of measures as "an act of war". Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov , who made a similar offer on Monday, told U.S.
In May, the president fired FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating alleged connections between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign. Perez has close ties to the cofounders of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier, which CNN failed to disclose.
Trump also alluded on Twitter to former FBI general counsel James Baker, who was reassigned last week by FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Republican donor Paul Singer initially hired Fusion GPS through the Washington Free Beacon to conduct opposition research on Trump and other candidates during the 2016 Republican primary, but that research was unrelated to the dossier.
Trump branded the dossier "fake news" and claimed it was a "political witch hunt".
