WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement after the Justice Department filed indictments against Russian nationals and organizations for meddling in American politics:
"These indictments make it clear that starting in 2014, the Russians launched a sophisticated assault on our elections with the goal of spreading distrust in the core elements of our democracy," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "It also remains crystal clear there was no collusion and the Russians were unsuccessful in their attempts to influence the results of the election. We, however, cannot ignore that Russians targeted our democratic system, candidates from both parties, and the media in an assault that can never be allowed to happen again. These indictments incriminate Russian officials alone and should serve as a rallying cry for Washington and the country to come together to prevent Russia, or any foreign government, from attempting to meddle in future elections."
