Rob Goldman, Facebook exec, apologizes for Russian meddling tweets cited by Trump

On Saturday evening, President Trump downgraded Russian Federation by making use of Facebook exec tweets and comments on social media networks. Saying Obama was dismissive of his fears of rigging possibility, Trump said his predecessor told him to "stop whining" and make his case to the people. Goldman said that he was "excited" to see the news of the indictments after Facebook had shared Russian-purchased ads with members of Congress and the special counsel's office as part of numerous probes into Russia's role in the presidential election.

Russian Federation is denying any involvement in the USA presidential election in 2016. The President notably has refused to condemn the interference in the wake of last week's indictments against 13 Russian nationals, instead claiming that the latest developments in the investigation demonstrate a lack of collusion between his campaign and Russia.

President Donald Trump said that Russian Federation was succeeding beyond its "wildest dreams" in sowing U.S. discord but refrained once more from directly challenging Moscow on its election meddling.

Trump was later heavily criticized for accusing the FBI of investigating Russian election meddling instead of working on a tipster's warning of the shooter who allegedly killed 17 people at a Florida high school last week.

Trump's focus on voter fraud in 2016 specifically targeted urban areas with diverse populations. He says instead that the view that he hasn't been tough on Russian Federation is "Total Fake News!". "If you run an ad mentioning a candidate, we are going to mail you a postcard and you will have to use that code to prove you are in the United States", Harbath said in the National Association of Secretaries of State conference at the weekend.

"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity", Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said last week.

It was the Clinton campaign that bought and paid for a fake-news, anti-Trump dossier full of Russian lies, propaganda and salacious details that were never verified. The four people indicted in the so call Trump campaign had nothing to do with the election.

Trump has repeatedly downplayed and doubted Russian meddling and its effects on the American political process in 2016 and beyond.

He was an advisor to Russian President Boris Yeltsin, did work for Gazprom media, and returned to the U.S.in 2000 after Vladimir Putin got elected. It's time we stop the outlandish partisan attacks, wild and false allegations and far-fetched theories, which only serve to further the agendas of bad actors, like Russian Federation, and do nothing to protect the principles of our institutions.
