As anyone who follows the news knows, Trump and many of his advisors are under investigation by the FBI and congressional committees for their involvement with Russia in the 2016 campaign.  You might remember some of his remarks from just a year ago while still campaigning.

"One year ago today, then-candidate Donald Trump raised the issue of Russian election meddling in remarks that had critics crying treason and apparently landed him on the radar of the FBI.
It also became a subject that has dogged him relentlessly. In just three days this week, congressional investigators have spoken to his son, Donald Trump, Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner and the former manager of his presidential campaign about Russian interference in the U.S. election.
On July 27, 2016, Trump was speaking to a crowd in Doral, Florida, when he said: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 (Clinton) emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."
Trump doubled down on Twitter later that day, writing "If Russia or any other country or person has Hillary Clinton's 33,000 illegally deleted emails, perhaps they should share them with the FBI!"

Plausible deniability will be hard to come by.

You may have noticed that I have started using Fox News sources. Trump has not accused them of fake news. Hopefully Trump supporters will not try to use this defense against these Fox posts.
