President Trump sought Monday to pressure the House committee investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election, arguing that the panel should be probing Bill and Hillary Clinton's alleged ties to the country instead of those of his own campaign advisers.In a pair of evening tweets, Trump wrote that the "Trump Russia story is a hoax" and listed a string of alleged financial and other connections the Clintons have had over the years with Russia. He asked why the House Intelligence Committee is not investigating the former president and former secretary of state.
