President Trump lashes out | Points fingers at Hillary Clinton's Russian dealings

"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, "bleached" emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction", Trump tweeted.

"Meanwhile, a Twitter account representing Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign trolled Trump for attacking Clinton".

In an earlier tweet, he called it a massive "witch hunt".

The Post, quoting several anonymous sources, said the probe has expanded after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Grassley also wants the investigation to look at Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch and whether she influenced the Clinton email scandal investigation.

The president also insisted that the Russian Federation investigation was a "witch hunt" before turning his ire on Clinton in two tweets Thursday afternoon.
