Fiery RNC Spokesperson: Indictment of 13 Russians Unravels Dems' 'Collusion Conspiracy Theory'
Russia targeted the U.S. presidential election with "information warfare" intended to sow discord among Americans, according to an indictment of 13 individuals announced Friday by the Justice Department.
"The defendants allegedly conducted what they called information warfare against the United States with the stated goal of spreading distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general," said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
He said there is no allegation in the indictment that Americans were involved in the Russians' efforts, which included using social media accounts to pose as American citizens.
The 37-page indictment was signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating Russian meddling in the election and potential coordination with the Trump campaign.
Responding to the indictments, RNC spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany said the information released by Rosenstein "unravels" the narrative pushed by the left since President Trump's victory.
"Today marks the day the Democrats' Russia collusion conspiracy theory unraveled," McEnany said on "Outnumbered Overtime."
She said the Russians were also organizing for Bernie Sanders and turned their activities against Trump after the election.
"This is astonishing. ... Democrats deceived this country and they were caught today."
Democrat Jehmu Greene accused McEnany of "spinning" the facts, calling on Trump to go before the American people and speak forcefully against Russia's interference.
"He has refused to acknowledge [Russia's interference]," she said, adding the Russians were "all in" against Hillary Clinton.
Host Melissa Francis noted that the heated debate proves the Russians were successful in "sowing discord" among Americans.
