Russian Officials Respond After Mueller Report Findings

Russian officials seem  pretty vindicated  after Attorney General William Barr released his summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe Sunday.  According to the letter, Mueller's team  didn't find evidence  that anyone involved with the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Russia has consistently denied trying to help then-presidential candidate Donald Trump win the election.  One  Russian lawmaker  said: "The media played the shameful role of instigators of a lie-based campaign.

Adherents of conspiracy theories are discredited.

From now on, only an idiot can believe them."  During a conference call  with journalists, a Kremlin spokesman referred to a quote from Chinese philosopher Confucius, saying: "It is hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if it is not there."  Mueller's report did find, though, that Russia made two main efforts to influence the election, a disinformation campaign and computer hacking operations to gather and disseminate information.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN
