Donald Trump seemingly woke up in a fighting mood Monday morning, blasting allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russian government. In a series of tweets, the president said that he never colluded with Russia during his presidential campaign or any time after.

During an interview with NBC earlier this month, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper did tell Chuck Todd there was “no evidence” of such collusion. During the campaign, however, candidate Trump publicly asked Russia to hack into the emails of his rival Hillary Clinton.

The tweet is likely an attempt to get out in front of any future Russia investigation by Congress and today’s testimony of James Comey. The FBI director is expected to address allegations that his department wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.
