White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders acknowledged on Tuesday that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the 2016 elections but said the efforts didn't play a role in President Donald Trump's victory.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called-out ABC News' Jonathan Karl during her daily press briefing Tuesday; reminding the reporter that "everybody wants to blame Trump" for Russian interference but it actually occurred "under the Obama administration". While some former Obama administration officials have said they could have done more to respond to the interference as evidence grew, Trump has dismissed it as a liberal "hoax" for his entire time in office.
A person with knowledge of Mueller's probe said last week the special counsel hadn't concluded his investigation into whether Trump or his associates helped Russian efforts to interfere in the election, despite the president's aides stressing Friday's indictment showed no willing collaboration.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, speaks to the media with an announcement that the office of special counsel Robert Mueller says a grand jury has charged 13 Russian nationals and several Russian entities, February 16, 2018, in Washington. "Last week there was an incident that will be reported in the coming days".
Trump's Cabinet, however, has forcefully spoken out against Russian Federation. That conclusion was followed by special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian companies accused of plotting to meddle in that election, ultimately aiming to benefit Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Sanders was responding to questions from a reporter regarding election interference by Russian Federation and what President Donald Trump has done about it.
A month ahead of the 2016 election, the US intelligence community voiced concern about the Russian interference. "Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?" "Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?" Obama also expelled 35 Russian government officials and ordered two waterfront compounds closed that the US said the Russians were using for intelligence-gathering operations. Trump has not forcefully asserted that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, famously suggesting that interference could have come from Russia, China, another country or "somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds".
Trump was criticized for not speaking out against Russian Federation after the indictment.
Earlier this week, Trump said Obama failed to act against Russian meddling because he thought Clinton would win.
Trump later reposted the tweet with the correct spelling of Sessions' last name.
