Report: sen. Warner jokes about the revealing of Russia probe info

Democratic ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, reportedly jokes about Russia probe, says donors to “buckle-up”; response to “The story” by Jonathan Swan, national political reporter for Axios.

President Donald Trump on Monday asked me loudly, when Virginia Democratic sen. Mark Warner was in a “in the vicinity of a drunken state” when he allegedly told donors he was able to spill the secrets about the investigation, in the Trump campaign, the alleged collusion with Russia.

“Why is Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), perhaps in the vicinity of a drunken state, he claims, he has information that only he and Bob Mueller, the leader of the 13 Angry Democrats on a witch hunt, you know?” Trump tweeted. “Is this not highly illegal. Is it studied?”
