Former U.S. President Donald Trump said that the investigation results by U.S. Special Prosecutor John Durham became an official confirmation that the accusations against him of secret ties with Russia from the very beginning were a deception invented by Democrats and personally by U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“The investigation of the Russia story showed that it was a complete fraud and was invented by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats,” he said, speaking at a rally of his supporters in Perry, Georgia, broadcast by Newsmax TV. “Imagine how Bill Clinton feels, in what fear he lives – after all, what an evil mind you need to have to invent a story with a Russian deception.”
According to Trump, the Democrats “invented this story. America had to live with it for three years, they invented this story and are now trying to repeat the same thing from January 6 (on this day, supporters of Trump, who was then president of the United States, broke into the Congress building to prevent the approval of the results of the presidential elections held in November 2020).”
“But now it’s official – everything was a hoax from the very beginning,” the former U.S. president added.
On September 17, U.S. Special Prosecutor John Durham charged a lawyer associated with the Democratic Party with perjury, who in 2016 provided the FBI with information about alleged links between the company of former U.S. President Donald Trump and a bank in Russia.
