The president tweeted Friday, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof".
In another tweet, President Trump again denied any collusion with Moscow, saying (quote) "despite the phony Witch Hunt, the economic and jobs numbers are great".
Trump's tweets Friday were especially remarkable considering the context that Trump was repeatedly asking Comey and other investigators to go on the record to say he wasn't under investigation.
But, Steve, I'm not sure I would read it that way. The Democrats' questions tended to be somewhat more accusatory toward the president, the Republicans' questions somewhat more exculpatory, but there was a welcome air of sobriety about the whole thing.

HORSLEY: It's a - it was a very unusual statement from the deputy attorney general. The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events. Like, don't believe the leakers essentially is what he's suggesting.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said: "Bob Mueller is a good and honorable man, but I certainly hope that the appointment of a special counsel doesn't turn into a fishing expedition". Pence headed the Trump transition until inauguration day. And the president has only himself to blame.
Mr Comey told a Senate panel last week he believed Mr Trump fired him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation probe and testified that the President directed him in February to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn in relation to the Russian Federation matter.
