U.S. President Donald Trump has predicted that a government watchdog report on the origins of the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, which engulfed two years of his presidency, will be historic, Reuters reports.

“The word is it’s historic,” Trump told Fox News Channel about an upcoming Justice Department's watchdog report.

Trump supporters have claimed the report from the Justice Department’s inspector general, which is expected to be released on Dec. 9, will raise questions about the legitimacy of FBI investigations into alleged links to Russia by Trump and some of his campaign advisers.
“That’s what I hear. If it’s historic, you’re going to see something,” Trump added.

As we reported earlier, President Donald Trump’s former chief adviser on Russia and Europe, Fiona Hill, called the theory of Ukraine's interference in the U.S. election "fictitious". She said this during an open hearing at the House Intelligence Committee.

“This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves,” said Hill, who served until July as the director for European and Russian affairs at the White House National Security Council.
