Earlier, trump criticized former head of national intelligence Joseph Maguire for what he allowed to hold such an event in Congress. Especially the President of the United States got angry because of the presence at the briefing of Congressman Adam Schiff — it was he who headed the prosecution during the impeachment trump.

Trump has repeatedly called “witch hunt” investigation of the alleged “interference” of Russia in the course of the presidential elections in 2016. According to the American leader-Republican, Democrats initiated the inquiry, — “one of the darkest” chapters in the history of America.
To deal with the Russian “intervention” for a few years seized the front pages of Newspapers and primetime on television, Washington initiated the investigation, the head of which stood spectracolor USA Robert Mueller. The work of the Commission Muller lasted from the summer of 2017 — American law enforcement officers were looking for evidence of possible RF interference in the US presidential election in 2016.

However, the theme of “Russian intervention” is not leaving the pages of American press: in early February, representatives of the social network Facebook said that it had found a group of fake accounts, which, according to the company, linked to Russian military intelligence. The report said that the owners of the accounts have contacted various politicians and the media posing as journalists or activists.
