President Trump has said that Joe Biden should “drop out of the race” after claims that he, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton led a “treasonous plot.”
Declassified documents allege that Hillary Clinton cooked up the entire Russia collusion hoax as a way to destroy President Trump and distract from her own scandals.
“Wow!!! NOW DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS, THE BIGGEST OF ALL POLITICAL SCANDALS (IN HISTORY)!!!” Trump fumed on Twitter on Wednesday.
The tweet that the president shared was initially posted in January 2018.
Trump’s comments came one day after he called for Hillary Clinton to be charged and blasted her as a “con artist” after declassifying documents on her email scandal.
After the news was broke on Tuesday night that the president had declassified the relevant documents, he started taking direct hits at the former Secretary of State.
Retweeting an article claiming that Clinton “allegedly approved Russiagate falsehood as distraction from email scandal,” Trump insinuated that she should be charged.
“A Disgraceful Con Arist! Charges anyone?” he wrote.
Trump confirmed the declassification on social media last night, writing: “I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax.
“Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!”
The president was responding to a Monday tweet from conservative journalist Paul Sperry.
Sperry’s tweet read: “When all the documents are finally declassified, and all the redactions removed from reports, the nation will see that the FBI and CIA not only knew the Russia ‘collusion’ allegations against Trump were a political dirty trick, but that they were in on the trick.”
An email scandal plagued former Secretary of State Clinton in 2016.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe wrote to Senator Lindsey Graham and claimed that Clinton “approved a campaign” to vilify Trump in 2016.
It further claimed that Obama was briefed of Clinton’s plan by Brennan.
At the time, Clinton was a candidate for president in the 2016 race.
