The Trump campaign on Monday warned TV producers about the "credibility of certain guests" following Attorney General William Barr's summary that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation found no evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign or his associates with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

The guests included Sen. Richard Blumental, D-Conn., Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., DNC Chairman Tom Perez, and former CIA Director John Brennan.

"Moving forward, we ask that you employ basic journalistic standards when booking such guests to appear anywhere in your universe of productions," the memo said. "You should begin by asking the basic question: 'Does this guest warrant further appearances in our programming, given the outrageous and unsupported claims made in the past?'"

Trump campaign director of communications Tim Murtaugh issued the memo.

"At a minimum, if these guests do reappear, you should replay the prior statements and challenge them to provide the evidence which prompted them to make the wild claims in the first place," Murtaugh added.

Swalwell fired back on Twitter.

"The only person who has been caught lying about Russia is Donald Trump," Swalwell said. "If he thinks I've made a false statement, he can sue me. And I'll beat him in court."
