Trump fumes about Russian Federation investigation as nation mourns

In a marathon series of furious weekend tweets from Mar-a-Lago, Trump vented about Russian Federation, raging at the FBI for what he perceived to be a fixation on the Russian Federation investigation at the cost of failing to deter the attack.

On Friday, roughly eight hours after special counsel Robert Mueller published a 37-page indictment of Russian operatives detailing alleged interference in the 2016 United States presidential election, Goldman sounded off on Twitter, despite getting no kind of approval from Facebook's communications staff or anyone else from upper management.

After the election, the Russians organized rallies both in support of Trump and protests about the election results - once on the same day.

Trump might want to focus on collusion, but his blanket denial that he ever questioned Russian meddling runs up against his own words. Trump tweeted on Monday. Trump used the indictments to again claim there was no evidence of collusion, though that wasn't within the scope of Friday's actions.

Trump viewed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's declaration that the indictment doesn't show that any American knowingly participated as proof of his innocence and is deeply frustrated that the media are still suggesting that his campaign may have colluded with Russian officials, according to a person who has spoken to the president in the last 24 hours but is not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. U.S. intelligence officials have said they've already seen evidence that Russians are seeking to interfere in the 2018 mid-terms. A later report from The Post quoted a senior Obama administration official as saying the response to Russia's hacking "is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend", adding, "I feel like we sort of choked". Borrowing a description from the indictments in regard to Russian contacts with duped Americans, I'll be kind to the major media outlets by saying their assistance in that regard has been "unwitting". It was a known fact that Putin hated Hillary Clinton. "He attacked Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the previous Congress and the news media before going after Oprah Winfrey", Smith listed. Obama also never moved to provide Ukraine with weapons during the Russian-backed insurgency in the country.

Defenders of Trump often point to a decision by the administration to allow Ukraine to buy small arms and light weapons from USA manufacturers to counter the narrative that the President is overly sympathetic to Russian Federation. The next year, Russian Federation entered the Syrian civil war with air support for Syrian President Bashar Assad, who immediately began bombing USA allies.

Winter Olympics TV Ratings Slide Downhill to Worst Night Yet

But Mueller has not so far announced any findings that prove that the campaign colluded with Russian Federation nor alleged that the President is compromised in any way or indicated whether Trump has anything to fear from the special counsel's investigation. Military sales represent a considerable slice of Russia's trade with the world, and Trump has moved to loosen restrictions on the sale of USA military equipment.

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida Friday. The Russians´ alleged campaign began with three weeks of reconnaissance in 2014, when two of them traveled to nine USA states, including Colorado and MI, according to the indictment.

"I don't believe they interfered", Trump said.

Schiff said that the Obama administration should have established a "more forceful deterrent".

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.
