President Trump and his team have launched a targeted counter-attack on Democrats and the left, turning the tables in the Russia collusion delusion.
As Democrats move forward with their efforts to investigate Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice in the Robert Mueller investigation, the president has turned the focus on how they have actually been the ones colluding – from Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee to former Obama intelligence officials who all worked at what the president has called a “coup” against him.

“There’s a woman who really obstructed justice,” Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, reacting to remarks Clinton made this week during the Time 100 Summit as she suggested the special counsel’s report “could not have been clearer” about the president’s alleged obstruction of justice.
Giuliani slammed Clinton, the Democrats and the “demented prosecutors” attacking Trump for allegedly obstructing Mueller’s probe, advising Clinton to “get a lawyer.”
Senior members of the Trump administration, the president himself as well as his attorneys and members of his campaign have been bringing attention to the many incidents of misconduct and more by Democrats during the more than two-year effort to bring down Trump.
Giuliani called attention to a “conspiracy with foreign operatives” in a tweet on Wednesday.
Hillary is correct the report is the end of the beginning for the second time…NO COLLUSION. Now Ukraine is investigating Hillary campaign and DNC conspiracy with foreign operatives including Ukrainian and others to affect 2016 election. And there’s no Comey to fix the result.

He called for an investigation of the Clinton campaign in an earlier tweet.
Is it a crime for an American campaign to consider information from a foreign source or to obtain it? If so the allegation that the DNC colluded with Ukrainian officials to generate information to hurt the Trump campaign and help the Clinton campaign must be investigated.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway also took to Twitter earlier this week as she questioned why fired FBI Director James Comey focused on the salacious claims made in the unverified anti-Trump dossier.
“Comey, then-FBI Director, waited 2 months after @realDonaldTrump was elected to pay a visit & brief the President-elect,” Conway tweeted Monday. “While there, he wasted his time on this golden-shower-nonsense-concocted-dossier. Could have been honest about Obama ignoring Russian interference instead.”

According to Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has already sent several criminal referrals to the Justice Department related to alleged crimes committed during the Russia probe, and Fox News is told as many as “two dozen” individuals could be implicated. It was unclear exactly whom had been referred.
“The American people have only seen the pieces that have been declassified so far,” Nunes told Fox News earlier this month. “There’s still more information.”
Conservative group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the FBI after the agency failed to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request about contacts made by a top Clinton campaign lawyer, the then-FBI general counsel and the dossier’s author, Fox News reported.
The watchdog’s president, Tom Fitton, tweeted a “partial list” of those who should be investigated.

Bouyed by the Mueller report’s findings that neither Trump nor any member of his campaign were guilty of colluding with Russia in the 2016 election, the president has been clapping back at Democrats, warning that he will take them to the Supreme Court if they push their impeachment efforts against him.

He also slammed them for wanting “more” despite his transparancy and cooperation during the in vestigation.
No Collusion, No Obstruction – there has NEVER been a President who has been more transparent. Millions of pages of documents were given to the Mueller Angry Dems, plus I allowed everyone to testify, including W.H. counsel. I didn’t have to do this, but now they want more…..

The president celebrated the effect of the apparent strategy to counter Democrats with their own misconduct.
“Tables are finally turning on the Witch Hunt!” he declared.
