President Trump broke with his national security adviser H.R. McMaster on Saturday after McMaster said that indictments in special counsel Robert Muellers investigation show incontrovertible evidence of Russia's election meddling.
"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. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!" Trump tweeted.
Trump's comments come after McMaster, speaking at the Munich Security Conference, said with the FBI indictment, the evidence is now incontrovertible that Russia interfered in the election.
McMaster also reportedly dismissed a question about future U.S. cooperation with Russia on cybersecurity.
We would love to have a cyber dialogue when Russia is sincere about curtailing its sophisticated form of espionage, McMaster said.
Thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian groups have been charged with multiple counts of attempting to interfere in the 2016 election.
The indictment alleges the goal of the Russians was to support then-candidate Donald Trump and hurt his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Some of the Russians allegedly posed as Americans and communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities.
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 FBI.
Trump has responded to the indictments on Saturday, taking to Twitter to hit the investigation and the media for covering Mueller's findings.
Funny how the Fake News Media doesnt want to say that the Russian group was formed in 2014, long before my run for President. Maybe they knew I was going to run even though I didnt know! the president tweeted earlier Saturday.
McMaster shows total disrespect for the President. Why the Hell doesn’t Trump fire him?
McMaster didnt say that they were either...
McMaster is an Obongo stooge. Hes been in the weeds waiting to stab Trump in the back he couldnt pass this chance up. The Rats loved it when Trump picked him now we know why. He played a big part in getting the dreadful Iran deal through.
He's a loose cannon. Trump should secure him to the deck or preferably throw him overboard.
McMaster is another Soros operative.
How in the hell does Trump pick these stooges?
What it made more difficult was Trumps initial year as president, because Hillary and the gang (Comey et al) were perfectly aware of what was going on and then wanted to protect themselves when Hillary unexpectedly didnt win (only unexpected because she ignored the polls since she was convinced the job was hers by right).
Im actually not even sure the Russian government is behind it, but more attention should be paid to the people who actually hired these trolls and set them loose. The reason this isnt being done is that it is thick with the fingerprints of Hillary and the FBI and every other Dem trying to cover their backsides.
He should fire McMaster and bring Flynn back.
The Russians didn’t do anything more than spit in the ocean.
Has anyone explained how the hackers changed the outcome?
I am totally disappointed with McMaster. Another deep state supporter in my opinion.
Mc Masters still doesnt know what nearly everyone on FR knew six months ago. Mc Masters is less of a stand up guy then I thought.
McMaster should have never been there to begin with.
McMaster is a Deep State guy, don’t know why he was appointed.
McMaster was sitting at the “Q” table last year. I wonder if he is in the loop?
It’s complicated, like the air moving from a butterfly flapping starting a hurricane. They influenced one guy in Minnesota, that threw the election to Trump.
McMAster is a POMPOUS ASS! Even the VP of Facebook (?) said that the ad buys were done AFTER THE ELECTION!!!
so why are they wasting Billions of dollars on campaign ads when you can just Troll for Peanuts
Wow, and at this point I have to say that if it takes Trump all these months to get a hint, you must really be stupid. The best thing the Russians ever did was try and promote Hillary, but then she lost anyways.
Actually, it is McMaster breaks with Trump. Does on a regular basis. Trump should fire him and rehire Flynn.
