Trump insists that the investigation of the Russian plot is a "witch hunt"

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, insisted today that the investigation of the so-called "Russian plot", which studies the supposed coordination between his campaign for the 2016 elections and the Kremlin, is a "witch hunt".

The president charged against the investigations taking advantage of the publication this week of the report of the Department of Justice in relation to some messages between the now ex-agent of the FBI Peter Strzok and his co-worker and lover Lisa Page.

"Wow, you have reported that 19,000 texts between Lisa Page and her lover Peter S, of the FBI, in charge of the 'Russian Farce' were cleaned and vanished, great news that will never be covered by the 'False News'. Witch hunt! ", Said the president in his Twitter account.

According to local media, the internal investigation of the Department of Justice allowed recovering "thousands" of lost messages that had been exchanged between Page and Strzok through their official phones, but in no case links the absence of these to malicious or intentional activities.

Strzok, as an FBI member, said in a message to Page that he would prevent the now-US president, Donald Trump, from reaching the White House.

In that dialogue, she asked the then agent if Trump would become president and he answered: "No, he will not get it.

Strzok was widely criticized for this conversation during the election campaign.

The official also participated in the investigations on the use of email of Hillary Clinton, rival of Trump in the elections, and in the beginning of the investigation of the Russian plot, led by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, until he knew the statements of Strzok and removed the controversial agent.

Strzok was removed from the FBI last August as a result of this controversy.

In the framework of investigations into the practices of the Trump team in the campaign of the 2016 elections, this week was sentenced to three years in prison by his personal ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who links the president with crimes of campaign financing and collaborating with the investigations of the Russian plot.
