President Donald Trump railed against the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election Saturday night into Sunday, sending off a stream of tweets attacking the FBI, CNN, the Democratic Party, his own national security adviser, former President Barack Obama and the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
He did not criticize Russia, or voice concern over Vladimir Putin’s attempts to undermine U.S. elections…
“I think it’s an absurd statement. Absurd,” said Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) on CNN.
Others reacted to that tweet, and the rest, with something of an eye-roll.
“Maybe it was a bad idea for him to stay off the golf course,” quipped one senior GOP Hill aide in response to a query from POLITICO.
