    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump continued on Sunday his Twitter tirade against Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election, saying that the "witch hunt" must never be allowed to happen again.

    "I became President of the United States in one of the most hard fought and consequential elections in the history of our great nation. From long before I ever took office, I was under a sick & unlawful investigation concerning what has become known as the Russian Hoax… This never happened before in American history, and it all turned out to be a total scam, a Witch Hunt, that yielded No Collusion, No Obstruction. This must never be allowed to happen again!" the president tweeted.

    ​According to Trump, his campaign was "seriously spied upon" by intelligence agencies and the Democrats.

According to the document, the investigation did not find any evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump's campaign team.
