President Donald Trump continued his attacks on the Russia probe on Friday.
His latest comments came in a morning tweet. He appeared to quote Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo as saying there was “no evidence to launch even an investigation into potential collusion.”
.@MariaBartiromo “No evidence to launch even an investigation into potential collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians – and here we are, a year and a half later.”

During a segment on Thursday’s “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Bartiromo had attributed the words to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.
“I mean Devin Nunes, the chairman of the intel committee on the House, has been with me several times telling me there was no evidence whatsoever to launch even an investigation into potential collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians. And so here we are a year and a half later the special counsel is still going on and we continue to see texts from FBI agents showing this incredible amount of bias.”
Trump’s tweet is just the latest in a string of attacks on the probe, headed by special counsel Robert Mueller. On Thursday, he repeated his claim that the investigation is “a rigged witch hunt” triggered by Democrats.
