Trump breathlessly quotes Fox & Friends 'theory' that Hillary Clinton was the real Russia colluder

Not that collusion is a crime, but if anyone is guilty of it, President Trump faults Hillary Clinton.

"Hillary Clinton and her team 100 percent colluded with the Russians," Trump tweeted Monday, quoting former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino on Fox & Friends.

Trump additionally boosted allegations against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), whom Bongino accused of trying to gather compromising information on the president. Trump on Sunday tweeted that his own campaign's attempt to get intel on Clinton was "totally legal and done all the time in politics."

"Collusion is very real with Russia," Trump's tweets continued, "but only with Hillary and the Democrats." The president has repeatedly claimed that his opponents were the ones guilty of collusion with Russia, using the claim as a defense against Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump's campaign team was involved with Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.
