Donald Trump went on a tweet storm about Russia, Don Jr., 'illegal leaks' and more


President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted about several hot-button issues surrounding his administration, including his son Donald Trump Jr., Russia collusion allegations and Obamacare.

He blamed an "intelligence leak" for a damaging report on A.G. Jeff Sessions from the Washington Post.

The report suggested Sessions discussed Trump campaign-related matters with a Russian ambassador, according to a former U.S. official. Trump called for the illegal leaks to stop.

Trump also asserted his "complete power to pardon" after the Washington Post reported that Trump’s lawyers are looking into the president’s ability to grant pardons for people in the ongoing investigation into the ties between his campaign and Russia.

He then went on to tweet about the "the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes," suggesting the Attorney General or Special Council launch an investigation.

He added that his son Donald Trump Jr. released his emails to the media "whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!," he tweeted. (Fact check: Clinton's team did not "acid-wash" her emails. Clinton's campaign used a free software program called BleachBit. It does not use chemicals.)

On his new communication's director, Trump seemingly responded to a 2012 tweet from Anthony Scaramucci, where he endorsed Hillary Clinton. "He wanted to endorse me 1st, before the Republican Primaries started, but didn't think I was running!," Trump tweeted.

This is the old tweet where Scaramucci said he hoped Clinton "runs" in 2016, because "she is incredibly competent."

On the GOP's efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump tweeted that "Republican Senators must step up to the plate" and that is solely up to them to replace it.

Several GOP Senators have said they can't vote for the the current Republican health care bill.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates an additional 22 million people will become uninsured by 2026 under the latest health care bill.

A CBO report released Thursday also revealed the number of uninsured would reach 15 million by 2018 before climbing further under the controversial bill.
