Trump: No Collusion, but 'Witch Hunt Hoax' Continues

Trump: No Collusion, but 'Witch Hunt Hoax' Continues

By    |   Friday, 08 March 2019 09:52 AM

President Donald Trump continued to lash out at special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into his dealings with Russia, saying it is "so bad for our country" and maintaining there never was never any collusion.

Trump, reacting to the sentencing of his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, made his comments in a Friday morning tweet.

He wrote:

"Both the Judge and the lawyer in the Paul Manafort case stated loudly and for the world to hear that there was NO COLLUSION with Russia. But the Witch Hunt Hoax continues as you now add these statements to House & Senate Intelligence & Senator (Richard) Burr. So bad for our Country!"

But The Hill pointed out the judge in the Manafort case, T.S. Ellis, did not actually say there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He had told prosecutors at the sentencing hearing Thursday that Manafort did not face any charges related to collusion, the website said.

Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison Thursday for tax and bank fraud, NBC News noted.

The network news reported Kevin Downing, Manafort's defense attorney, made a brief statement after the hearing.

"There is absolutely no evidence that Paul Manafort was involved with any collusion with any government official from Russia," he said.
