Trump calls Russia probe a ‘hoax’ but will not stop investigation

WASHINGTON, US President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the investigation into his campaign’s possible collision with Russia is a “hoax,” but noted that he would not stop it from continuing.

“I could fire everybody right now, but I don’t want to stop it because politically I don’t like stopping it,” Trump said in a news conference.

“It’s a disgrace. It should have never been started because there was no crime.” He continued that he is “not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation, because it is a hoax. There is no collusion.” The president has been a long time adversary of the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt.” “I stay away from it, but you know what I do? I let it just go on. They’re wasting a lot of money, but I let it go on because I don’t want to do that,” Trump reiterated.

“It’s a disgrace, frankly, and it’s an embarrassment to our country.”
