President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Democratic attempts at oversight in the coming Congress could amount to "presidential harassment."
Speaking from the Oval Office, Trump again denied any collusion between his team and Russia when he was questioned about the investigative powers Democrats will assume come January.
"It's probably presidential harassment and we know how to handle that. I know how to handle that better than anybody," Trump said.
"There's been no collusion, after two years," he added.
Trump has used the term "presidential harassment" multiple times in the past to refer to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. He's also used the term to refer to Democratic criticism of his administration and potential tough oversight from the incoming Democratic-controlled House.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has yet to issue a final determination on the extent of connections between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election....

They should not be allowed to harass a sitting President of the United States.
Master of branding.
Just think what the left would do if we did this to their president.
Almost as if they are working FOR the Russians. Hmmmm......
Mueller has used his position to go after non-registered foreign agent citizens and a few tax evaders. Woopie. None of which have anything to do with Russian collusion with the republicans.
If he’s now investigating Podesta, etal, or some other goose-chase which has nothing to do with the President or the election, and has interviewed ad nauseum everyone connected to any Russian that came within 4000 miles of America, he needs to write his report and file it, and request separate funding for these unrelated cases that are just dragging out the overall process and muddying Trump’s name simply by enabling the media to make a word association.
Their hate and vitriol against a duly elected president is unmatched in my lifetime.
They shouldn't be allowed but who's going to stop them?
Let's only hope he can handle it and has their ace cards in his back pocket.
