As the net begins to tighten on President Donald Trump, he continues to try to deflect attention away from the charges that his campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election.
In act of desperation, he recently went on a tweet storm accusing former President Bill Clinton and former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton of being tied to Russia.
Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech….

Many Trump’s supporters continue to downplay the Russia story. According to Raw Story, some Trump supporters said they were okay with Russia influencing the election because of the “liberal media.”
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had an even more outrageous explanation. He blamed the allegations on shape-shifting reptilian aliens who had infiltrated the government.
“The reptilians are deeply embedded in the government,” said Jones on his show “InfoWars.” “They leaked the fake Russia story to spark a war between them and the United States. Their goal is to take over the world, and that would be much easier if we destroyed ourselves.”
Jones recently apologized for spreading fake stories about “Pizzagate,” a rumor about a Washington, D.C. pizzeria which was supposed to be holding sex slaves for a child sex ring involving Hillary Clinton. Edgar Maddison Welch, a Jones listener, was arrested after he stormed the pizzeria with a gun in an attempt to free the children.
