President Donald Trump’s deputy campaign manager dismissed Democrats’ efforts to tie the New York Republican to Russia, calling them “outrageous” and “insidious” attempts to damage the president.

David Bossie, the head of Citizens United, said on Fox and Friends Thursday that investigators will not find a smoking gun if they follow the facts when it comes to the Trump campaign’s alleged dealings with Russia.

“I can tell you that if you want to follow the facts you have got to go where the facts lead you, and there aren’t any to lead you anywhere except for some Democrat operatives,” Mr. Bossie said on Fox and Friends.

House and Senate investigators are looking into Moscow’s possible interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Mr. Bossie, meanwhile, called on House and Senate investigators to subpoena Evelyn N. Farkas, who served as President Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, to testify.

During an appearance this month on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Ms. Farkas said she urged her colleagues to preserve information it had on the Trump campaign’s relationship with Russian officials before Mr. Obama left office - out of fear that that information would be swept under the rug in the new administration.

“There are people - incredibly bad intentioned people - who are left over from the Obama administration who are trying to do damage to him for political purposes,” Mr. Bossie said.
