Goldfarb denied any Russian influence, telling the network that the people who attended the events were simply supporters of then-candidate Trump.

“Those people who were with me were all Trump supporters,” she told CNN. “Very, very much so.”

When a CNN reporter told her the events were planned by Russians posing as Americans, Goldfarb responded “BS.”

“Please report that I don’t believe that. It’s bulls---,” she said. “I know all the people that were with me. They were at my meetings. They were all Trump supporters.”

“Did you guys realize that you were in communication electronically with Russians?” the reporter asked.

“Not me,” Goldfarb replied. “Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonKoch brothers group won't back Stewart in Virginia Giuliani says his demand for Mueller probe to be suspended was for show Poll: GOP challenger narrowly leads Heitkamp in North Dakota MORE was, and so were all her bandits.”

The indictment alleges the goal of the Russians was to support then-candidate Donald Trump and hurt Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Some of the Russians allegedly communicated with “unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities.”

The indictment also alleges that the Russians staged political rallies and posed as U.S. grass-roots entities to encourage “real U.S. persons to promote or disparage candidates.”

In a tweet following the release of the indictments, Trump claimed the indictment showed his campaign “did nothing wrong” and that there was “no collusion” with Russia.
