Trump tweeted 'do something' to investigate Clinton connection to dossier


President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to discuss health care, tax reform and the Russia investigation.

The president reaffirmed his commitment to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act but his administration would not take action until after tax reform.

Trump then changed topics to the Russia investigation and dossier. According to a report from CNN Saturday, the first charges have been filed by special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. The report said the charges were not disclosed but individuals could be taken into custody as early as Monday.

On Friday, The Washington Free Beacon confirmed they originally hired research firm Fusion GPS to look into President Donald Trump's background. Earlier in the week, reports claimed that Secretary Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee continued the research with Fusion after the GOP source lost interest.

President Trump called the actions of Democrats a "disgrace."

The president has repeatedly claimed that the investigation is a "hoax." During the White House Press Briefing on Friday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the money spent looking into this investigation was a "pretty big waste."

"I think we are seeing now is, if there is any collusion with Russia it was between the DNC and Clintons and certainly not our campaign," Sanders said.

Trump then stated he believes the timing of the "Russia talk" coinciding with the republicans big push to try and overhaul tax reform was not coincidental.

During an Interview with CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday morning, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said she believes Senate Intelligence Committee should further question Debbie Wasserman Schultz and John Podesta. Stating it's "difficult to imagine they didn't know about the funding of the dossier.

Last month both Podesta and Wasserman Schultz denied knowledge of payments when questioned by investigators.
