Trump spoke in an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin that aired on Sunday, after Durham's statement that cast serious doubt on British ex-spy Christopher Steele's dossier insisting that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia.
"We're just starting to find out. Durham is getting interesting -- I wish it could have been faster, but it's getting very interesting," stated Trump.
"Russia, Russia is a hoax. They all know it was a hoax. It was fabricated, made up in order to make me look as bad as possible so she could win, crooked Hillary could win the election, he continued. 'They know it is a hoax, and made up."
Durham's indictment charging Igor Danchenko, a Russian-born analyst living in Virginia, claims that he fabricated one source and used a Democratic political operative as another for allegations included in Steele's dossier.
The Steele dossier was mentioned in warrant applications by the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller in getting secret warrants to spy on a Trump campaign advisor, who was never charged with a crime.
On Wednesday, Murdoch, the owner of Fox News who has beforehand backed Trump, reportedly warned that he should cease focusing on past injuries.
"The current American political debate is profound, whether about education or welfare or economic opportunity," Murdoch announced throughout an annual shareholders' meeting for News Corp.
"It is crucial that conservatives play an active, forceful role in that debate, but that will not happen if President Trump stays focused on the past. The past is the past, and the country is now in a contest to define the future."
"I was here doing the inflation -- throughout the inflation or stagflation of Jimmy Carter, it was a disaster, this is much worse," he stated.
Trump insisted that the price of gasoline is now $7.50 per gallon, referring to a single California gas station in a remote area near Big Sur that has hit that level in recent weeks.
