Russians accused of plot to disrupt election

Russia denies meddling accusations by US says allegations is all 'blather' Russians accused of plot to disrupt election

President Donald Trump picked up a Saturday night tweetstorm where he left off on Sunday, sending 15 tweets in 18 hours railing against Democrats and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Last November, he also told the press that he took Russian President Vladimir Putin at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the 2016 election. "Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!"

On Sunday, Trump also praised Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, for placing some blame for Russian interference into the election onto the Obama administration.

McMaster's comments Saturday were part of a testy exchange with a Russian delegate at the conference.

Moscow on Saturday dismissed as "blabber" and "fantasies" allegations that it interfered in the election that brought President Donald Trump to power, denials that drew immediate scorn from U.S. officials. It says unnamed Americans unwittingly assisted the Russian effort, but it does not address whether Trump campaign officials or others cooperated with other Russian efforts to interfere in the election.

On Friday, a federal grand jury in Washington DC indicted 13 Russian nationals and a Kremlin-linked internet firm on charges that they meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"I've said all along that I thought the Obama administration should have done more ..." None in my embassy did.

The indictment of these Russians leaves open the two most important questions in the Trump-Russia investigation.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed the charges, calling them "blabber" and "fantasies".

He also scoffed at any move to working with Russian Federation on cybersecurity saying "we would love to have a cyber dialogue when Russian Federation is honest about curtailing its sophisticated form of espionage".

But the president has voiced no interest in the detailed evidence contained in the indictments suggesting that those charged had targeted United States democracy via online interference from as far back as 2014. "You can publish anything, and we see those indictments multiplying, the statements multiplying".

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Delaware), also called on Trump to enact more sanctions against Russian Federation, telling CBS's "Face the Nation", "there are actions we should be taking to increase the pressure on Russian Federation to back off". "Until we see the facts everything else is just blather".

President Donald Trump spent much of his weekend hammering the FBI, Democrats, Robert Mueller's investigation and his own national security adviser over Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election that he won.

One of the Russian nationals indicted was Richard Pinedo, a Santa Paula man that pled guilty to allegedly stealing personal information an online auction house business and then selling those identities to people outside of the country, according to U.S. District Court documents unsealed on Friday. "I do not know how the Americans came to this decision". "He did not do what they are saying he did".
