Quote: "After two years of calling Russia's interference in the 2016 election a "hoax," Trump admitted that Russia helped install him in the White House.
"Russia, Russia, Russia! Thatís all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax...And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected," he tweeted Thursday morning.
The admission came as part of a mini Twitter rant a day after special counsel Robert Mueller gave his first public statement about his investigation, in which he said that his investigation could not and did not exonerate Trump, but confirming that he was forbidden by Justice Department policy from charging Trump.
