President Trump has blasted the ongoing Russia investigation for its negative impact on “young and beautiful lives.”
He tweeted Sunday, “Who’s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt? They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation…They went back home in tatters!”
Though Trump did not mention specific names, there have been reports about the toll the investigation into Russia’s interference in US elections has had on people who have been questioned by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

Former Trump-campaign adviser Michael Caputo told the National Review in April about costs related to the probe, “These tremendous expenses have forced us into a situation where many basic bills go unpaid or paid late. We may lose our home. To pay the bills, I’ve liquidated my children’s college fund. And my legal bills are far from over.”
And Carter Page, another former adviser for the president’s campaign, recently told the New York Post that he lost a girlfriend and experienced professional setbacks as a result.
Trump’s Sunday tweet wasn’t his only recent message slamming the Russia probe.
“This whole Russia Probe is Rigged. Just an excuse as to why the Dems and Crooked Hillary lost the Election and States that haven’t been lost in decades. 13 Angry Democrats, and all Dems if you include the people who worked for Obama for 8 years. #SPYGATE & CONFLICTS OF INTEREST!” Trump wrote on Saturday.
