President Donald Trump Turns Obama's Words Against Former President Over Twitter

In a December 2016 interview with Time magazine, the president-elect said, "I don't believe they interfered".

On Friday, the president appeared to suggest on Twitter that the indictments were proof his campaign didn't collude with Russian Federation.

Just a year ago in November, after the first official meeting between President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump at a Vietnam summit, the USA president said that he was ready to believe the Putin's deniability about the issue.

Beginning as early as 2014 and assisted by social media, Russian operatives built a sophisticated network created to "interfere with USA political and electoral processes, including the 2016 US presidential election", the indictment reads.

Rob Goldman's tweet was retweeted by President Donald Trump. Trump wrote just after 3 pm ET on Monday after returning from a round of golf at his course, said a CNN report. The parties were charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. They are laughing their a***s off in Moscow. "Facebook got duped", he added. Would it have made a difference if more African-Americans had voted in the Rust Belt states that Trump unexpectedly won?

Peskov told reporters that while the indictment focuses on "Russian nationals", it gives "no indication that the Russian government was involved in this in any way".

The United States has failed to provide "significant evidence" of any meddling in its affairs, he insisted.

Peskov added that Russian Federation "has neither meddled, nor does it have a practice of interfering in domestic affairs of other states".

Earlier Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had dismissed the claims in the indictment as "blabber".

Mueller took charge of the federal government's probe from the FBI past year following the sacking of its former chief James Comey. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

"I do think there are other shoes to drop here besides this indictment", former national security director James Clapper said on CNN. The indictment details the lengths Russian conspirators took to bolster Trump, malign Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and sow discord and distrust in American society. Trump inaccurately portrayed it as personal vindication.

None of the congressional committees investigating the interference - both the social media efforts and attempted Russian hacking of state election systems - have yet proposed policy changes to prevent it in the future.

He then lashed out at his national security adviser, Lt Gen H R McMaster, who had said at a security conference in Germany on Saturday that the indictment provided "incontrovertible" evidence that Russian Federation had interfered in the American democratic system.

In December, the Trump administration imposed sanctions on five Russians under a US human rights law that has been a major irritant between Washington and Moscow.
