Bloomberg reported Friday that the special counsel's indictments on Friday of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities represents only part of a larger investigation that still includes whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow.

Mueller's investigation is expected to continue for months, according to Bloomberg. Investigators are also looking into whether Trump sought to obstruct the probe into Russian election meddling.

But Trump, who has blasted Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt" and has denied any ties to Russia, took to Twitter to declare that the indictment essentially proves that there was no coordination between his campaign and the Russians. 

"Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted," Trump wrote. "The Trump campaign did nothing wrong — no collusion!"
