President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that "collusion with Russia was very real" during the 2016 campaign — but that it involved the Democrats — and he demanded a new federal investigation of Hillary Clinton and House Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Adam Schiff on their Kremlin ties.

"Hillary Clinton and her team 100 percent colluded with the Russians, and so did Adam Schiff, who is on tape trying to collude with what he thought was Russians to obtain compromising material on DJT," the president said in a pair of Twitter posts:

The tweets came after the president on Sunday defended Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russia lawyer and other operatives in June 2016 in hopes of obtaining negative information on Clinton.

President Trump asserted that the Trump Tower meeting was a routine part of politics and was "totally legal and done all the time."

Besides Trump Jr., others at the session included Paul Manafort, then chairman of Trump’s presidential campaign; Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and several Russians, including the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and their representatives.

In bashing the Democrats, President Trump referenced comments from former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who told Fox News of a tape that host Sean Hannity had played on his radio show of Schiff seeking to obtain damaging information on Trump from Russians.

"He plays the tape of Adam Schiff," Bongino told "Fox and Friends" in an interview. "No one denies it's him on tape trying to collude with what he thought were Russians to obtain compromising material from the Russians.

"We also know that Hillary Clinton paid through a law firm eventually with Kremlin-connected sources to gather information on Donald Trump.

"Collusion is very real with Hillary and the Democrats," Bongino said, "and we should demand a full and accountable investigation."
