president trump tweeting a number of criticisms about investigations, including this one. everything the democrats are asking me for is based onnen illegally started investigation that failed for them, especially when the mueller report came back with a no collusion fining. they say impeach president trump even though he did nothing wrong while they fish. now, the investigation into president trump's campaign did not begin illegally. it began after one of his campaign officials bragged to an australian diplomat the russians offered the trump campaign dirt. the diplomat was so disturbed by the idea of foreign interference in the american elections he contacted american officials. and the fbi launched a counterintelligence investigation. that meeting is happening right now. we'll have a full report on 11:00 a.m. news and on twitter. scott, thanks.
