President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump to fundraise for 3 Republicans running for open seats: report Trump to nominate former Monsanto exec to top Interior position White House aides hadn’t heard of Trump's new tax cut: report MORE broke with his national security adviser H.R. McMaster on Saturday after McMaster said that indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation show “incontrovertible” evidence of Russia's election meddling.

"General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H, the DNC and the Dems. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!" Trump tweeted.

 

 

Trump's comments come after McMaster, speaking at the Munich Security Conference, said “with the FBI indictment, the evidence is now incontrovertible” that Russia interfered in the election.

McMaster also reportedly dismissed a question about future U.S. cooperation with Russia on cybersecurity.

“We would love to have a cyber dialogue when Russia is sincere about curtailing its sophisticated form of espionage,” McMaster said.

Thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian groups have been charged with multiple counts of attempting to interfere in the 2016 election.

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

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

Trump has repeatedly denied the notion that his campaign coordinated with the Russians to influence the 2016 race and has accused Democrats of improper collusion with the FBI.

Trump has responded to the indictments on Saturday, taking to Twitter to hit the investigation and the media for covering Mueller's findings. 

“Funny how the Fake News Media doesn’t want to say that the Russian group was formed in 2014, long before my run for President. Maybe they knew I was going to run even though I didn’t know!” the president tweeted earlier Saturday.
