Special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE last week brought charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups for interfering with the 2016 U.S. elections.
The explosive new charges allege that the Russians created false U.S. personas and stole the identities of real Americans to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, an assessment previously reached by U.S. intelligence agencies.
Over the weekend, Trump vented his anger with the Russia investigation, declaring that "they are laughing their asses off in Moscow" over the ongoing probe into Moscow's interference in the 2016 election.
In a remarkable burst of tweets sent from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, the president blamed the Obama administration for not doing enough to deter Russia.
He also claimed he never denied the meddling took place — all while undercutting his own national security adviser who said Saturday that the interference is now “incontrovertible.”
