'Ridiculous bullshit': Trump blasts ongoing investigations

President Trump at a Thursday rally in Michigan blasted Democrats' ongoing investigations of him as "ridiculous bullshit."

"The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit, partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people and join us to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs … help us fix our broken trade deals," he said to the crowd.


Trump's comments come after special counsel Robert Mueller submitted the results of his investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 elections. On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr said in a letter to Congress summarizing the report that Mueller's team did not find coordination with Russia.

"The Russia hoax proves more than ever that we need to finish exactly what we came here to do: Drain the swamp," Trump said Thursday.

House Democrats still have separate ongoing investigations into the president, including investigations into his finances and whether he obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.

Mueller did not determine whether Trump had obstructed justice and left his findings for Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to draw a conclusion. In his letter to lawmakers, Barr said the Justice Department had decided not to pursue obstruction charges against Trump.
