The Department of Justice charged 13 Russians and 3 companies on Friday in an indictment that revealed interference in the 2016 election which favored President Trump’s campaign.

As reported by CNN, the Russian government denied on Monday that it had meddled in the election. While Trump did not speak publicly about the indictments over the weekend, he did send out about 20 tweets on the subject, one of which blamed former President Obama for not stopping the interference.

As PBS reports, Internet Research Agency – one of the indicted companies – allegedly had “a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and acted toward that goal.”

So what does all this mean for the Russia investigation? Larry speaks to reporters following the story for the latest.
