Russia's goal of election meddling "stirring up chaos"

Rod Rosenstein deputy attorney general speaks during a news conference at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. U.S. on Friday Feb. 16 2018

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announces indictments of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for meddling in the 2016 presidential election; insight from Niall Stanage, White House columnist for The Hill.

Trump's weekend tweets also included attacks on the structure of the constitutional system set up to oversee a President's power. He said Sunday "they are laughing their asses off in Moscow'" at the lingering fallout from the Kremlin's election interference and that the Obama administration bears some blame for the meddling.

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida Friday.

And in September, he tweeted: "The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook", referring to the discovery that Russian entities had posted ads on Facebook critical of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and supportive of him.

Schiff said that the Obama administration should have established a "more forceful deterrent". Students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland are planning a march on Washington next month to pressure politicians to take action on gun violence.

"The president should enforce the sanctions that Congress has obligated him to", he said.

Fesler adds, "Every day when I say "bye" to my parents, I do acknowledge the fact that I could never see my parents again". Chris Coons, D-Del., on CBS' "Face the Nation". He made those complaints to members who stopped by his table Saturday as he dined with his two adult sons and TV personality Geraldo Rivera.

THE FACTS: H.R. McMaster, Trump's national security adviser, would have had no basis to say Russian Federation failed to impact the USA election because that is an open question.

H.R. McMaster was answering a question from a Russian delegate, shortly after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov left the same stage at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. "The president has not, not once, not on camera, not on Twitter, not anywhere", Smith reported.

"It won't solve everything", Harbath said in a brief interview with Reuters following her remarks. But having lived through the Soviet system, I see a bigger threat than that: Limiting foreigners' ability to troll US politicians, or even the political process as a whole, could be the first step toward doing the same for Americans.

The United States has failed to provide "significant evidence" of any meddling in its affairs, he insisted. "There should be no doubt that Russian Federation perceives its past efforts as successful", Dan Coats said in warning that Moscow was already meddling in the 2018 midterms. "It's all about himself, collusion or not". President Trump was elected president according to the laws of our country and should be afforded the same opportunity to represent not just the citizens who voted for him but to represent all United States citizens.

The main action Trump has taken on guns in office has been to sign a resolution blocking an Obama-era rule created to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people.

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 Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Hill recalled.

"It is a direct outcome of these attacks for political reasons on the organization", Josh Campbell, a recently retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who is now a CNN law enforcement analyst, said Monday on CNN's "The Lead".

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican and frequent Trump critic, called that tweet an "absurd statement" on CNN's "State of the Union", adding that the "FBI apparently made a awful mistake, and people should be held accountable".

"We need a comprehensive system", Brown said.

Now there's a 37-page indictment detailing how the Internet Research Agency applied the same methods in the US, with its employees posing as Americans.

Their links to Putin are intentionally tenuous; that's why the indictment doesn't accuse the Russian government of any involvement.

Trump tweeted that quote on Tuesday morning and responded to it by saying: "That's because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat.' When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems".
