President Donald Trump's busy Monday morning on Twitter continued when he asked about "all of the contact" Hillary Clinton's campaign had with Russia. 

After taking a break from calling CNN fake news, the president also asked, "is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?" This suggests, without presented evidence, that his opponent's campaign was in contact with Moscow and blocked an investigation.

What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?

James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!

The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!

These tweets come hours before FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers will testify about allegations of Russian hacking and if there was a link between Moscow and Trump's campaign.

The Monday morning, March 20 hearing before the House Intelligence Committee concerning the Russian election allegations will serve as the Trump administration's "greatest public accounting," according to the Associated Press.  

Live video of the hearing:

A.P. reports that investigators believe Moscow hacked into Democrat computers to help Trump during the election. U.S. intelligence agencies have said that Russia did get involved in the campaign in helping Trump secure victory. 

After Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election, the Justice Department and FBI presented no new evidence supporting these claims. 

A.P. reports Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, said the material presented offers evidence that Americans colluded with Moscow in interfering with the presidential election.
