President Donald Trump fired off some angry tweets on Monday morning regarding allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election.

The president defended himself, and his campaign, by reasserting that he has never colluded with Russia — not during his presidential bid and not after the election.

President Trump also repeated his request for an investigation into the leaks that have continuously emerged from the White House since Trump took the oath of office less than 100 days ago.

According to Mediaite, the tweets may be an effort by President Trump to get ahead of any future investigations by Congress regarding his relationship with the Russian government, especially since FBI Director James Comey will be testifying today about allegations — made by President Trump himself — that Comey’s department wiretapped Trump Tower by direction of Barack Obama during the 2016 campaign.
