On Friday, the Department of Justice announced that Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States.
The indictment states that some defendants “communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign.” However, they did not make their Russian associations known.
But President Trump has responded. Trump took it on Twitter and said that “the results of the election were not impacted” because “Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President.”
“No collusion.” the president tweeted.
Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!

Trump has repeatedly denied allegations of collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin, often calling the investigation a “hoax” or a “witch hunt.” Also, the White House put out a statement in response to the indictment:
Earlier today, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced indictments against 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities for meddling in the 2016 Presidential election, which began in 2014 before the President declared his candidacy. President Donald J. Trump has been fully briefed on this matter and is glad to see the Special Counsel’s investigation further indicates—that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia and that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected.
President Trump says, “it is more important than ever before to come together as Americans. We cannot allow those seeking to sow confusion, discord, and rancor to be successful. It’s time we stop the outlandish partisan attacks, wild and false allegations, and far-fetched theories, which only serve to further the agendas of bad actors, like Russia, and do nothing to protect the principles of our institutions. We must unite as Americans to protect the integrity of our democracy and our elections.”
The last administration knew about Russian Collusion long before Our President took office. It seems a shame it took the Justice Dept & FBI four years to find this out??? Time to stop this nonsense and stand behind our President!
This is a dead horse at taxpayers expense. I am so sick of hearing Russia! I wonder, how much more time and taxpayer money needs to be wasted on this fiasco? They have found no collusion, but they continue to look under every rock hoping against hope that they will.
Enough is enough.
