President Donald Trump has claimed that a declassified Republican memo totally vindicates him in an FBI probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 polls and called the investigation an 'American disgrace'. The four-page document released on Friday accused senior law enforcement officials of misleading a court in order to conduct surveillance on a former Trump campaign adviser during its probe into the alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 US presidential election.
"This memo totally vindicates 'Trump' in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on," Trump tweeted. "Their (sic) was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction. This is an American disgrace!" he said. Agencies
