President Trump finished Tuesday’s Tweets, tweeting 4 more times and re-tweeting 4 times.
As the News Blender reported on Tuesday, the bi-partisan committee has reached a deal that would partially fund the federal government through the fall, provide 1.37 billion for 55 miles of U.S. border fencing, and could possibly lower the number of beds at detention facilities at the border in the future.
According to The Hill one of the Congressional members involved with the negations between Republicans and Democrats, Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), explained to reporters that he had briefed President on the deal, and told President Trump “that the agreement contained nearly $23 billion in total funding.” Shelby added that he did not ask President Trump if he was willing to sign the deal.
The government has until Friday to pass the funding bill to prevent a second shutdown of key departments such as Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.
1. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA!
NBC News reported on Tuesday that according to both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, they have found “no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.”
The article notes that the Committee has conducted 200 interviews over a span of two years, but “investigators disagree along party lines when it comes to the implications of a pattern of contacts they have documented between Trump associates and Russians — contacts that occurred before, during and after Russian intelligence operatives were seeking to help Donald Trump by leaking hacked Democratic emails and attacking his opponent, Hillary Clinton, on social media.”
As the News Blender reported on Friday Chairman of the Intelligence Committee Richard Burr (R-NC) told CBS News in a rare interview explained, “If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.”
The top Democrat on the Committee Senator Mark Warner (VA) told CNN, that he disagrees with Burr’s recent comments, “Respectfully, I disagree. I’m not going to get into any conclusions I’ve reached because my basis of this has been that I’m not going to reach any conclusion until we finish the investigation. And we still have a number of the key witnesses to come back.”
CNN goes on to say that Burr told reporters on Tuesday, “The only thing I’ve addressed is whether we had facts that suggest there was (collusion). We don’t have any.”
Burr was asked if the Committee’s investigation exonerated Trump to which he explained, “Just saying what factually we’ve found to date. We haven’t finished our investigation.”

From President Trump’s tweet: “Just Announced.”
