Maria Zakharova, spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, calls the charges for "absurd". A Russian legislature call the indictment "another anti-Russian move," Reuters writes.
- Americans are very emotional, they see what they want to see. I'm not upset to be on the list. If they want to see the devil, let them, Russian businessman Jevgenij Prigozjin - one of the defendants - according to the news agency RIA.

Believe nothing, until the Kremlin denies it.
"One can publish whatever they want. We see indictments, claims and statements rising in number…. So, unless we see the facts, all the rest will be just twaddle, I am sorry for my not so diplomatic expression," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said when taking the floor at Munich Security Conference.

Trump the Genius from Karlstad answers to the indictments...
Trump’s Conspicuous Silence Leaves a Struggle Against Russia Without a Leader
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/17/us/politics/trump-russia.html
President Trump’s first reaction was to claim personal vindication: “The Trump campaign did nothing wrong — no collusion!” he wrote on Twitter.
He voiced no concern that a foreign power had been trying for nearly four years to upend American democracy, much less resolve to stop it from continuing to do so this year.
....
Michael A. McFaul, an ambassador to Moscow under President Barack Obama, called Mr. Trump’s reaction to the indictments “shockingly weak” and said he should instead have criticized Mr. Putin for violating American sovereignty or even announced plans to punish Moscow.
“Instead, he just focused on his own campaign,” Mr. McFaul said. “America was attacked, and our commander in chief said nothing in response. He looks weak, not only in Moscow but throughout the world.”
...
John P. Carlin, a former assistant attorney general for national security and chief of staff to Mr. Mueller when he was F.B.I. director, said the president’s silence sent a message to Russia and the world.
“I think it does have consequences,” he said. The American government can warn against further interference, but “it would be better if it gets driven by the commander in chief. The goal is to drive a clear message that says the United States and our allies throughout the world that share our values are drawing a line that says ‘stop, this is unacceptable.’”

And Trump still doesn't understand...

When Trump says that there was no collision with Russians i believe him.
Trump is careful when walking and has someone hold his hand, so that he doesn't stumble.

When Putin said that Russian prostitutes were the best in the World, i'm sure that Trump said to himself "He's right".
I don't believe that Trump has ever collision-ed with a Russian.
There may have been some rubbing of bodies, frantic to and fro, but no collisions.

If Melania doesn't care, then who are we to say anything.
It all depends on what's in the prenuptial agreement.

Still a pee tape would be bad, and could definitely influence the president.

As a poster who has described President Trump as Dangerous Donald and Idiot Trump:

What secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others, did specifically Trump do?

Some in the Democrat National Committee, some in Hillary's campaign and some Hillary supporters? Very possibly. But was it knowingly with some? According to the lastest from the Russian indictment. Possibly not.

Some in Trump's campaign and some of Trump's supporters? Very possibly. But was it knowingly with some? According to the lastest from the Russian indictment. Possibly not.

What are the specific allegations regarding Trump himself?

Of course. Just asking for facts specifically linking Trump. The "collision" hysteria has, as of this moment, not been verified.

Yes... I treat the Always Trumper's and the Never Trumper's with the disrespect, that in my opinion, they both deserve.

And yes... I believe Trump, as with his predecessor and other Presidents. Should not, for the good of the USA, have been elected. Include the possibly of Hillary winning.

But... Those wishing to use what might be described as Trumped [sic] Up Charges to remove a legally elected president. Are the true enemies of the USA.

Considering his Stormy and McDougal, Rump spy, Rump little head do, one has to wonder about Russian female gifts and Russian Hotel rooms with built in NKVD recording devices.

Shouldn't the question be, "Could Russian actions using social media affect future elections?" and if the answer is Yes, shouldn't the President be leading the necessary actions to prevent it in the future.

Shouldn't Trump be worried that if it is allowed to continue, it is just as likely that the Russians, or some other external organisation, might decide it would be better if Trump in 2020 or the GOP candidate in 2024 lose.

So far I see no leadership from Trump.

So therefore, no collision or collusion.

Therefore, I am correct that their is nothing, as of yet, to specifically accuse Trump of...

Keep up the failed attempt, here and across the world, to deflect from this fact.

UNLESS... You have the proof and are willing to share it with us.

Do you?

I wasn't aware that opinions needed proof.

I see a tRump who can barely form a cogent sentence, let alone collude with Russians.
I have little doubt that people who work for tRump would collude on his behalf.

Asking for facts and proof to back up accusations. Is, in your question, an attempt to abridge your Rights?

Re: How Russia influenced the US Presidential election.

In my opinion, and I hope you will accept my Right to have this opinion, as I accept your Right to disagree with my opinion.

Is that those who really believe that the results of the last election was "influenced" by Putin and therefore Trump didn't really win. Is an confirmation that Putin won. He is expertly playing them for fools.

His enormous victory in possibly making any election in this country, or any other country suspect. By using social media, or giving any information, whether true or false to both candidates. Or funding both pro and anti demonstrations, as outlined in the Russian indictments.

Is the real tragedy.

Re: US Constitution.

Voting for President is not a Nationwide Popular vote, needing a majority vote. Bill Clinton won with 43% in 1992 is but one example and most Americans voted against Hillary.

Since the majority of Americans voted against Hillary. Why should she have won?
