Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Saturday dismissed as "blather" accusations that Moscow interfered in the USA election that brought President Donald Trump to power. "Defendants and their co-conspirators did not report their expenditures to the Federal Election Commission, or register as foreign agents with the U.S. Department of Justice, '" watchdog Common Cause said in a statement.

"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 Russian Federation, and do nothing to protect the principles of our institutions".

Russia's foreign minister says the USA indictment of a group of Russians accused of an elaborate plot to disrupt the 2016 presidential election is "just blabber".

Those indicted include a businessman nicknamed "Putin's chef" who is accused of bankrolling a "troll farm" in St Petersburg, an IT expert who used computer servers to disguise the farm's location, and a female spy who entered the United States in 2014 to gather intelligence.

Before a Florida rally, the Russians paid one person to build a cage on a flatbed truck and another to wear a costume portraying Clinton in a prison uniform.

A federal grand jury on Friday indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election. The meddling happened under the Obama administration during the 2016 presidential elections between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. Trump himself has been reluctant to acknowledge the interference and any role that it might have played in propelling him to the White House.

Along with Modi, his maternal uncle Mehul Choksi is also involved in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam and fraudulent LoUs . Meanwhile, Nirav Modi is speculated to be in Europe since he was booked for the huge fraud on Punjab National Bank (PNB).

The indictment describes a sophisticated and well-funded multi-year operation, dubbed "Project Lakhta", by Russian entities, to influence the election, beginning as early as May 2014.

Kelly has also been a key player in the White House's hardline immigration policy which has left hundreds of thousands of people brought to the U.S. illegally as children in limbo after Congress again failed to act on a compromise to shield them in return for funding for Trump's border wall.

- The president's failure to take action to protect the USA election system and prevent another assault on our democracy - a real and ongoing concern voiced by the unanimous testimony of his top intelligence officials - appears to be a gross dereliction of Trump's duties and an abrogation of his oath. Moderator Lester Holt of NBC News asked Trump about the hacking of emails from the Democratic National Committee. "She (Clinton) keeps saying 'Russia, Russia, Russia, ' and maybe it was". It could also be lots of other people. "I know nothing about Russian Federation". "It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, okay?" Against the intelligence and counterintelligence against the latest developments and technologies? And in the days that followed, chief of staff Reince Priebus, son-in-law Jared Kushner and other advisers prodded Trump to accept the findings. Aides said Friday he was only referring to the collusion allegations. "I have never seen an indictment so bereft of citation and case law..." "What he (Putin) believes, he believes", he added.

Trump, speaking in November 2017, suggested the trio were less trustworthy than Putin. "Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that, ' and I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it".

Friday afternoon is "a great time to release news if you want to bury the news", Just Foreign Policy Group director Robert Naiman said, though he doubts this was done intentionally. "As to whether I believe it or not", Trump told reporters the next day, adding, "I'm with our agencies, especially as now constituted with their leadership". It was a conspiracy to subvert the process, and take aim at democracy itself.
