Trump Comes Out Swinging, In Halloween Morning Tweet Storm
President Trump on Tuesday dismissed the latest wrinkle in the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s election meddling, saying the alleged actions of his former campaign chairman occurred prior to his involvement with the Trump campaign.

“The Fake News is working overtime. As Paul Manaforts lawyer said, there was ‘no collusion’ and events mentioned took place long before he.......came to the campaign,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
 
The tweet comes one day after Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman, and his former business associate, Richard Gates, were charged in a 12-count indictment stemming from the special counsel's probe into Russia's election interference. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Trump also dismissed the volunteer foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the course of its investigation into Russia’s election meddling.
