(NationalSentinel)Â Politics:Â President Donald J. Trump said Monday hours before FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify before the House Intelligence Committee that Democrats concocted the ‘Russia interfered in the presidential election’ out of whole cloth.
According toÂ The Associated Press, Trump made his accusations via Twitter:
His tweets came just hours before a potentially politically damaging hearing in which FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers planned to testify on allegations of Russian hacking and whether there were any connections between Moscow and Trump’s campaign.
“The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!” Trump tweeted.
“The real story that Congress, the FBI and others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!”
He’s right, of course; the leakingÂ is the biggest concern.

Based on how easily the president has beaten his opponents repeatedly, on Capitol Hill and in the mainstream media, there is no reason to doubt him. Plus, as we reported earlier, top Democrats also don’t believe there’s any fire to the smokescreen that’s been put up regarding allegations Trump and the Russians colluded to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

The president also said in an interview last week withÂ Fox News that “more” information on his initial allegation - that he was “wire tapped” at Trump Tower, which is whatÂ The New York Times reported on Jan. 19, will come out in a couple weeks. We’ll see.
Plus, where did that leaked informationÂ come from that ensnared former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and his conversations with Russian diplomats (which were never deemed improper or illegal, by the way)? Had to come fromÂ somewhere. Had to come fromÂ electronic surveillance (the modern-day version of “wiretapping”).
One thing we’ve learned that Trump opponents haven’t learned yet is that the man does not say something definitive unless he’s absolutely certainÂ he’s right. He may have a flare for embellishment from time to time, but he is always certain of theÂ substance of what he says.
Will some “bombshell” emerge from the Comey testimony? Not according to top Democrats and former U.S. intelligence chiefs who are beginning to worry now they’ve oversold this fake Russia narrative to their base.
