Trump Says Collusion Investigations Play Into Russia's Hands

Rod Rosenstein deputy attorney general speaks during a news conference at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. U.S. on Friday Feb. 16 2018

Evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia could still come to light, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has suggested, even though the indictment handed down last week against Russians and Russian companies did not indicate that an American was knowingly involved in United States election meddling. As the 2016 campaign took shape, the Russian effort focused on promoting Donald Trump's candidacy and discrediting Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump, apparently having decided that he can no longer ignore or dispute the fact that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election, is now doing what he always does: look for a scapegoat to "prove" his innocence.

As the indictment by Robert Mueller states, the interference by the Kremlin was aimed at the creation of discord in the American political system which means offering support for the Trump presidential bid as a way of disorienting every aspect of the USA system of governance and the American citizenry. "That's because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat, '" Trump wrote in a follow-up post.

While divisive content was generated to antagonize both liberal and conservative Americans, the indictment says the campaign was aimed at helping the Donald J. Trump campaign.

A U.S. federal jury has already indicted 13 Russian citizens and their companies from Russia for alleged illegitimate interference in the 2016 presidential campaigns and elections.

Following the suggestion that Russia had attempted to influence the outcome of the USA election, then-president Obama imposed economic sanctions (although these were largely symbolic), expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the US, and announced the closure of two Russian compounds. The logic of Trump's position is that he would have won anyway, so Russian meddling is of no concern.

Trump was not in office when the Russian effort began in 2014. or in 2015. or in 2016.

Obama encouraged Trump to "stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes".

The Facebook executive supported defended his company through the tweets stating that the Russians acquired ads on the social platform but that they were not necessarily used to sway the elections.

In the days leading up to the 2016 Obama remarks Trump cited on Tuesday, Trump had tweeted that the election was being rigged by the "dishonest and distorted media" and at many polling places. "Get smart America!", Trump wrote on Twitter on February 18.

Goldfarb denied any Russian influence, telling the network that the people who attended the events were simply supporters of then-candidate Trump. Twitter says that about 1.4 million users have received notifications from the service telling them that they may have followed or interacted with IRA-linked accounts.
