Donald Trump kicked off Wednesday morning in an all-caps tweet to announce that the Republican-led Senate has totally cleared him of collusion with Russia, but investigators beg to differ — along party lines, of course. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) said that there is no evidence of collusion, but Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking member on the committee, disagreed saying that there are still a number of key witnesses to talk to. In addition, special counsel Robert Mueller isn’t finished with his investigation. Mueller has already handed down dozens of indictments, so it’s almost as if everyone in Trump’s orbit has not been completely aboveboard and obstruction may still be a factor. We’re not going to know until Mueller is finished.
Trump thinks he’s totally cleared, though, and took a victory lap on Twitter.
“The Senate Intelligence Committee: THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA!” President Exclamation Mark tweeted.

Well, that settles it then. Mueller should just pack up and go home. Republicans have cleared their president*. Case closed!
Twitter users pounced.
The Senate is led by Republicans. ENOUGH SAID!

They’re not the ones investigating your criminal conspiracy with Russia.

You told Lester Holt you fired Comey over the Russier thing.

He keeps saying that, but he seems to be forgetting that it’s Robert Mueller that he should be worried about, not a Republican controlled Senate.

No they said there is no DIRECT link to you that they know of. Burr also said on VNS that it was a shockingly large conspiracy to influence US elections.”

But wait till you hear about the obstruction, conspiracy and laundering that Mueller and the SDNY are going to clip you for. You’re demented. Resign!

Your idiot son had a meeting with Russian intelligence agents in Trump Tower in the hopes of getting election help.
Your campaign chair shared voter data with Russians.
You are a Russian mob money launderer who can’t take a piss w/o Putin’s permission.
But you be you.

Of course there was. You requested it on live TV for a start, remember?

Evidence of collusion:
– meeting with Russians at Trump Tower to discuss sanctions
– asking Russia to hack Hillary’s server on TV
– Manafort giving poling information to Russian spy
– senior Trump campaign official directed to contact Roger Stone about Wikileaks’ next email dump

Hey #Trump… did they scream this or is that just you sounding incredibly agitated and cray cray?

Buckle up, Mr. Trump, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Mueller isn’t finished and the SDNY is on his heels.
