The biggest story since Donald Trump became president has been what role Russia played in his victory. Despite Trump denying any and all allegations against him, that hasn't stopped his critics from lashing out in more ways than one.

Trump and Russia

Back in June 2015 when Donald Trump announced that he was running for president, no one really knew what to expect from his campaign. As time moved forward, the former host of "The Apprentice" picked up steam and managed to be nominated at the Republican National Convention last summer. Despite this, Trump was given little chance at success in the general election, but was able to pull of one of the most shocking upsets in recent political history with a win over heavy favorite and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Since then, various well-respected news outlets and government reports have concluded that Russia hacked the election, and also did so in favor of Trump's campaign. As expected, the billionaire real estate mogul has denied any wrongdoing, accusing any reports that say otherwise of being "fake news." Trump's latest issue in regards to the Russian scandal comes from Robert Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel to the Russian investigation by the Department of Justice. Fast forward to present day and Trump is catching major heat over the allegations, which was amped up in Washington, as reported by MSNBC on October 24.

As Donald Trump walked through the halls of the Senate alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the president got an unwelcome surprise.

Several protesters were in the building shouting "Trump is treason!" at the president. In addition, Trump was hit by Russian flags that were tossed at him as he attempted to make his way through the building.

Upon further review, Erica Werner of the Associated Press got a hold of one of the Russian flags, and showed on her Twitter account that they had the name "Trump" stitched on them.

At least one protester was taken away by Capitol security after the incident took place.

While Donald Trump and his team deny any link back to Russian President Vladimir Putin or the Kremlin, it doesn't appear that everyone is buying his defense.

With the pressure mounting, only time will tell what the future holds for the billionaire real estate mogul when it comes to the current scandal and investigation involving Russia and the 2016 presidential election.
