One of the key figures indicted with plotting to interfere in the 2016 USA presidential is a Russian restaurateur believed to have ties to President Vladimir Putin.
The president later tweeted that his campaign had done "nothing wrong" and again denied colluding with Russian Federation.
"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".
"I'm surprised there are any Russian cyber-experts available based on how active a lot of them have been undermining our democracies in the West", he said to laughter.
The surprise indictment could alter the divisive United States domestic debate over Russia's meddling, undercutting some Republicans who, along with Mr Trump, have attacked Mr Mueller's investigation.
The Russian disinformation campaign also sought to help Trump after he became a viable Republican aspirant and Vermont Independent Socialist Sen. Trump has denied any collusion or obstruction. "The point is that the misinformation campaign is ongoing and must be addressed".
The indictment charges 13 Russian nationals and three businesses - including an internet firm tied to the Kremlin - with conspiracy, identity theft, and failing to register as foreign agents. "If they want to see the devil, let them see him". The Department of Justice confirmed of charging the accused parties with conspiracy to defraud the country on Friday.
U.S. President Donald Trump's national security adviser has told an worldwide audience that the evidence of Russian meddling in the 2016 American election is beyond dispute.
"It is a good day for President Trump", he told Ingraham.

It's the first of three ranked games in a row, followed by a game with Texas, finished with a road trip to Oklahoma State. It should also be noted that Graham went to the charity stripe 10 times as he was getting fouled quite a bit.
In an official statement, Trump called for United States citizens to unite against the evil forces and protect the integrity of their democracy.
"The nature of the scheme was the defendants took extraordinary steps to make it appear that they were ordinary American political activists", Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein said in a brief news conference after the indictment was released.
Because Mr. Mueller has now indicted Russians for exploiting social media and US laws, it can be expected that he will also bring charges in the hacking crimes. "We must not allow them to succeed".
Goldman further detailed that the true goal of the "Russian propaganda and misinformation effort" is to use the very freedoms we enjoy to create division in America.
In the 37-page indictment, signed by Mueller, the defendants are accused of spreading derogatory information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, denigrating Republican candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio - and ultimately supporting Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and Trump. "For example, the defendants organized one rally to support the president-elect, and another rally to oppose him - both in NY on the same day".
Of course, Mueller is continuing to investigate whether that's true. The indictment doesn't say if any of them responded, and there's no allegation that any of the campaign officials knew they were communicating with Russians.
But Eliason tells me that we simply can not know yet what this means.
