Donald Trump backs Facebook executive's tweet to deny Russian collusion

Donald Trump backs Facebook executive's tweet to deny Russian collusion

President Donald Trump is attacking former President Barack Obama over the Obama administration's response to Russia's meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election.

Harbath didn't say exactly when the system will be ready, but she did say it would arrive in time for the 2018 mid-term elections in November. Trump said in a tweet on Saturday. "Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!"

The White House says President Donald Trump supports efforts to improve the federal gun background check system after a school shooting in Florida that left 17 dead.

McMaster was answering a question from a Russian delegate at a Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

Trump tweeted Friday about his conviction that Russian Federation had no impact and Vice President Mike Pence said in an Axios interview days earlier that "it is the universal conclusion of our intelligence communities that none of those efforts had any impact on the outcome of the 2016 election".

But Obama personally warned Putin against messing with the election, imposed sanctions on Russian individuals and entities, kicked out 35 Russian diplomats and closed two of the Kremlin's compounds in the United States.

"Of course, as we've often said, Bob Mueller and his team know a lot more about all this than is out there that we know, and I think there's much more to come". None in my embassy did. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says other shoes will drop in the ongoing Russian Federation probe-most likely involving the "finances" of the Trump campaign and the president's businesses.

Venting his fury over the Russian Federation investigation, President Donald Trump on Sunday asserted that the Obama administration bears some blame for the election meddling, insisted he never denied that the Kremlin interfered in the 2016 USA campaign and said "they are laughing their asses off in Moscow".

Ratcliffe also said the indictment doesn't show any evidence of Russian collusion with the president's administration.

He said "we would love to have a cyber dialogue when Russian Federation is honest about curtailing its sophisticated form of espionage".

Lavrov, just moments earlier, had dismissed the indictments as "just blabber" through an interpreter.

While Obama's administration failed to deter a Russian hacking campaign aimed at influencing the election, and responded in a way that leads experts to believe that Russia will do it again, Trump has faced criticism for his posture toward Putin.

As the social media company continued to face blowback for the tweets, Joel Kaplan, Facebook's VP of public policy, released the following statement on Sunday night: "Nothing we found contradicts the Special Counsel's indictments".

"They can´t out of hand stop it, because it´s very hard for them to trace those things", said Ann Ravel, a former member of the US Federal Election Commission.

Meanwhile, Facebook's vice-president of advertising, Rob Goldman tweeted that Russian political ads on social media were created to divide U.S. society.

Mikhail Burchik was quoted as saying by the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that "I am very surprised that, in the opinion of the Washington court, several Russian people interfered in the elections in the United States". As the election neared, the paid ads and social media posts attempted to sow doubt about the election process itself.
