Is charges against Russian nationals justification for trump?

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announces indictments of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for meddling in the 2016 presidential elections; the recognition by Niall Stanage, White House columnist for The hill.

President Trump pushed back Saturday against the reporting of what he called “the Fake News Media” to the revelations about the Russian interference in the election of 2016 — interference say began, before he ran for office and relying on a Facebook official said, swaying the election was Russia’s goal.

A federal grand jury on Friday, 13 Russians and three Russian company accused for the alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential elections, in a case brought by FBI, Special Counsel Robert Müller, detailed action to “sow discord in the U.S. political system.”

On Twitter, Trump cited parts of the indictment, said the Russian-based Internet Research Agency with the work started in the year 2014 — which was, he noted, long before he even announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015.

Funny how the Fake News-Media don’t want to say that the Russian group was founded in the year 2014, long before my run for the presidency. Maybe you knew that I was not going to run, even though I knew!

“Maybe you knew I was not going to run, even though I knew,” he laughed.

He will quote then- ” retweeted, the Vice-President of Facebook ads, Rob Goldman, who had written that the majority of the Russian ad spend, occurred after the election, and the swaying of the election was not the main objective of the advertising.

The Fake-News media never fails. To you this fact by the Vice-President of Facebook Ads, Rob Goldman!

“The Fake-News media tweeted never failed,” Trump, probably based on the cover, he believes, has played down the details.

Goldman had, however, already clear that “the Russian campaign was sure to be in favor of trump.”

Thanks for the proof read. If you only edit those that tweet could. To the substance: the Russian campaign was certainly to the benefit of trump. The point is that the disinformation must be a campaign in progress, and addressed. Today we saw a Russian pro-gun-tweets re: Florida shooting.

Earlier, Trump tweeted a quote from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, said in a press conference on Friday that the prosecution’s claim that every American who participated knowingly in the illegal activities of the Russians.

Deputy A. G., Rod Rosenstein, said at the press conference: “There is no allegation in the indictment, that every American, was a knowledge of the participants in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged behavior changed the outcome of the election in 2016.

Above all, Trump stayed away from attacking the study and Muller directly, instead, it hails in the indictment, as a justification for his claim that there is no collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Trump tweeted on Friday that “The trump campaign has done nothing wrong-no collusion!”

“The results of the elections were not affected.”

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in the year 2014, long before I announced that I was running for President,” Trump tweeted. “The results of the elections were not affected. The Trump campaign has done nothing wrong – no collusion!”

In the 37-page indictment, signed by Müller, the defendant is accused of spreading derogatory information about the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton against Republican candidate Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio — and, ultimately, the support of the Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and Trump.

Rosenstein said the scheme to build hundreds of social media accounts with stolen or fictitious identities to make it appear as if the accounts were controlled by persons in the United States, said He asked the defendant, as a politically active Americans and “real Americans recruited” on-stage demonstrations and engage in politically-although he added that the Americans knew that they were in communication with Russians.

He also said that after the election, the group worked with discord to sow by staging rallies both in favor of the President-elect trump card, and in opposition to him.

According to the special counsel, the indictment charges fraud by the defendants with conspiracy to defraud the United States, the fraud three defendants with conspiracy to commit wire and bank, and the five accused of serious identity theft.
