The Russians are laughing at the U.S. over the investigation into Russian interference in the 1026 election, and the associated media coverage, says President Trump.
The obsession of the Washington news media with the “Russian meddling” scandal, including the Friday report that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner allegedly attempted to covertly establish communication with Russian officials last December, have prompted the President to call the story “fake news” and a “lame excuse” for the Democrats’ election loss.
Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.

The Daily Caller reports:
Three congressional committees and subcommittees and the FBI are investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including if there were any ties between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.
During an interview with NBC News in May, Trump said he wanted “to get to the bottom” of the investigation.
“If Russia hacked, if Russia did anything having to do with our election, I want to know about it,” Trump said. “I want that to be so strong and so good. I want to get to the bottom.”
Trump has said in the past that Russia must be laughing at the U.S., both over the accusations of meddling in the election, and several times during the Obama presidency.
