The president spent much of the holiday weekend tweeting about the Russia investigation after Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals on charges that they carried out a multimillion-dollar operation to depress support for Democrat Hillary Clinton and boost backing for Trump in the 2016 election.

Trump was criticized for not speaking out against Russia after the indictment. He instead focused on comments by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that the indictment didn’t contain evidence that Trump’s campaign willingly collaborated with Russian efforts. He also rebuked his national security adviser for not defending the legitimacy of his election.

Sanders said Tuesday that Trump has acknowledged several times that Russia attempted to interfere with the U.S. elections. She also echoed another tweet by Trump over the weekend, in which he claimed to have been “much tougher on Russia than Obama.”

Adam Schiff, D-Calif, told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "If you want to blind yourself, then you can look the other way.

Sanders hinted the administration would soon reveal action it had taken against Russia, saying “an incident” will be “reported in coming days, another way that the president was tough on Russia.”

During the weekend, Trump also promoted a Fox News report featuring a "great timeline of all of the failures the Obama administration had against Russia." He reiterated his complaints that Russian meddling was an "excuse" by Democrats for losing the presidential election and claimed he "never said Russia did not meddle in the election."

"The Russian ‘hoax’ was that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia - it never did!" the president wrote.

Trump’s previous statements contradict Mueller’s findings. In a 2016 interview with Time Magazine, Trump said he didn’t believe Russia interfered in the election; he also told Fox News that month he didn’t believe CIA conclusions that the Russians wanted to boost his chances.

The president also took aim at his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, who told an audience at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday that Russia had engaged in a “sophisticated form of espionage” against the U.S.

“General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H, the DNC and the Dems,” Trump tweeted in reference to Hillary Clinton.

Sanders said Trump retained confidence in McMaster.

"He said that he liked the general’s answer, but just thought that little addendum would be helpful to add," Sanders said.

A person with knowledge of Mueller’s probe said last week the special counsel hadn’t concluded his investigation into whether Trump or his associates helped Russian efforts to interfere in the election, despite the president’s aides stressing Friday’s indictment showed no willing collaboration.
