Trump reads from a prepared statement as he delivers remarks on the protests in Charlottesville Virginia

Summary: Russia released a statement denying any meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election or before. The "Fox and Friends" segment Trump referenced also quoted similar remarks from the former president.

President Donald Trump has been insistent since winning the election that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation to win.

Cuccinelli calls the forensic efforts of Mueller's investigation "impressive", given the scope of the "vast investigative effort that went on unseen by the American public or the media" in indicting the Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election.

United States intelligence chiefs warned earlier in the week that Russian meddling has continued and poses a threat to the United States mid-term congressional elections in 2018.

In one tweet, Trump quoted Obama saying toward the end of the 2016 race that there was no evidence America's elections were "rigged", suggesting the then-businessman should "stop whining". "That's because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat, '" Trump continued in a second post.

Finally, Liddle' Adam Schiff, the leakin' monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election.

"But Trump glossed over Russian responsibility and offered no indication of what his administration would do about it".

Facebook's head of advertising, Rob Goldman, has apologized after a tweetstorm that seemed to downplay Russian interference in US elections on the heels of indictments made by special counsel Robert Mueller late last week.

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has once again found itself on the receiving end of backlash over the allegations of the involvement of Russians in the manipulation of social media platform to influence the outcome of the U.S Presidential elections.

It's a line of criticism Trump has used previously when attempting to deflect attention from accusations his campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation in the run-up to the 2016 contest.

His indictment said the Russians adopted false online personas to push divisive messages and staged political rallies while posing as Americans, among other charges. Friday's indictment established that Mueller gathered substantial evidence establishing a Russian scheme to influence our election. "The president attacked the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and his national security adviser H.R. McMaster".

In addition to investigating Russian meddling in the election, Mueller is probing whether Trump has in several ways obstructed justice to undermine the investigation, including his firing of former FBI director James Comey, who was leading the agency's Russia probe at the time Trump ousted him.

"It's unprecedented", Obama said of Trump's claims when a reporter asked about them in October 2016.
