"Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!"
An email scandal plagued former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016.
The president was responding to a Monday tweet from conservative journalist Paul Sperry.
Sperry's tweet read: "When all the documents are finally declassified, and all the redactions removed from reports, the nation will see that the FBI and CIA not only knew the Russia "collusion" allegations against Trump were a political dirty trick, but that they were in on the trick."
In September, a new letter from Donald Trump's intel chief said Clinton allegedly planned to "stir up a scandal" against Donald Trump in 2016 – connecting him with Vladimir Putin and Russia.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe wrote to Senator Lindsey Graham and claimed that Clinton "approved a campaign" to vilify Trump in 2016.
At the time, Clinton was a candidate for president in the 2016 race.
Per Ratcliffe, Clinton's alleged plan was to vilify Trump by tying him to Russian President Vladimir Putin "and the Russian's hacking of the Democratic National Committee."
The letter also addresses Democratic Senators Dianne Feinstein, Mark Warner, and Adam Schiff, as well as Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Devin Nunes.
It further claimed that former President Barack Obama was briefed of Clinton's plan by the Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan.
However, the letter was reportedly rejected by both Democrats and Republicans who reviewed it on the Senate Intelligence Committee in the aftermath of the 2016 election because it was part of a Russian intelligence assessment.
The letter states that on September 7, 2016, officials forwarded an investigative referral to FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok about Clinton.
It apparently involved the "approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server."
Bombshell text messages between staffers appeared to back up Trump’s claim that the "Russian hacking" briefing was being stalled so his opponents could "build a case."
Earlier this year, Clinton defended sending sending government emails from a private server and claimed she is the “most investigated innocent person in America."
The text messages between the FBI employees related to a probe over whether Moscow tried to influence the presidential race on Trump's behalf by hacking and leaking damaging info on Democrat Hillary Clinton.
