H3 there was no collusion

In more news on Trump’s comments about Russia, a New York Times photographer took a photo of his prepared remarks, showing a Sharpie was used to cross out the phrase “anyone involved in that meddling to justice,” in reference to prosecuting those involved in the alleged interference in the election. The prepared remarks also showed the words “There was no collusion” scrawled in Sharpie in the margins of the paper. After delivering his statement, Trump launched a tweet storm attempting to defend his comments in Helsinki, tweeting last night, “The meeting between President Putin and myself was a great success, except in the Fake News Media!” He also tweeted this morning, “So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki. Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!”
