Trump attacks ex-CIA chief over 'hit job' Russia probe

Trump attacks ex-CIA chief over 'hit job' Russia probePresident Donald Trump attacked the probe into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia as a “political hit job” on Monday, as a part of a mounting White House effort to paint the probe as politically motivated. In the latest salvo from Trump’s administration and his Republican party, the president assailed former CIA chief John Brennan, a strident critic, as having initiated the investigation.
