President Trump doesn't sound impressed with Robert Mueller's big indictment. After news broke that former campaign manager Paul Manafort had been charged with multiple felony counts of tax fraud and money laundering, Trump weighed in. "Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign," he tweeted. "But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????" And then, he added, in reference to Mueller's wide-ranging investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 race, "Also, there is NO COLLUSION!" Trump is correct in that the Manafort indictment has no reference to Manafort's work with the campaign, notes the Hill. (More President Trump stories.)
