Kremlin dismisses US election indictment as lacking evidence

The 37-page indictment issued against 13 Russians and three Russian companies by Special Counsel Robert Mueller last week is one of the most shocking, revealing and troubling array of fully-documented revelations about a wholesale assault on the domestic American democratic system ever.

This past weekend, secretaries of state from many USA states met in Washington to discuss their top issues and concerns, including how to combat attempts to interfere with or influence state elections.

President Donald Trump speaks with his son Donald Trump January 2017.

Federal law makes it a crime for foreign nationals to use financial means to attempt to influence USA elections. President Trump has also developed a solicitous behavior towards the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin showering praises to his strongman ethos and wanting to be around him at global events.

If such matters are not treated in an unbiased manner, we are not a nation of equality under the law, but a banana republic masquerading as a democracy. But the indictment actually says that the company's operation, named "Project Lakhta", also involved domestic audiences within Russian Federation and others targeting foreign audiences in various countries including the US.

Senior Business Information Systems major Alexi Korolev, who is originally from Moscow, has said he does not identify as a Trump or President Vladimir Putin supporter in recent interviews with The Suffolk Journal.

Trump's personal life has demeaned the dignity of the presidency. However, according to an executive of Facebook, it is believed that most Russians ad spending came after the election. "But that was a year ago". To pay for all of this, they established fraudulent USA identities and bank accounts so that no one would know they were heeding political advice from Russians employed by “Putins chef.”. Trump was not in office when the Russian effort began in 2014. or in 2015. or in 2016.

In another tweet, Trump said, "I have been much tougher on Russian Federation than Obama, just look at the facts".

US Markets Try to Rally After Monday's Plunge and Global Selloff
After starting the year strong, last week was the worst week on Wall Street in two years, and the decline continued Monday. Benchmark Treasury yields rose after the Treasury Department sold new 10-year notes to soft demand and the U.S.

By virtue of his behavior, Trump lowers presidential decorum and sets a damaging precedent for future presidents. "The notion that somehow if Mr. Trump loses Florida, it's because of those people that you have to watch out for, that is both irresponsible and, by the way, doesn't really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president", he said.

Trump also questioned on Monday why Obama didn't do more to prevent Moscow from interfering in United States elections, tweeting: "Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election".

Trump retweeted Goldman's remark, using it to scold the "fake news media".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters during a live press conference on Tuesday afternoon that Trump "has been very hard on Russian Federation".

Trump had often said during the campaign that the election was "rigged" against him. However, he did not say if former President Barack Obama knew about the Russian interference.

Twitter chose to deal with the effects of Russian meddling by deleting the tweets from Russian troll accounts.

For O'Brien, he said it is time for Trump to step up and admit Russia's interference.

"If you look at the president's track record, it's been anything but strong when it comes to Russian Federation", said Kilmeade. "I mean he predicted this when he was running, and people laughed at him, no one expected him to win".
