Washington Post Kremlin rejects Mueller report, calling it inconclusive, harmful to U.S.-Russia tie


Funny, Trump and Putin are on the same page as per their response to the Mueller Report.

*******

MOSCOW — The Kremlin on Friday rejected special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, calling it inconclusive in establishing any such meddling and damaging to U.S.-Russia relations.

The report “still does not present any conclusive evidence of alleged interference by the Russian Federation in the electoral process in America,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday. “We continue to refuse to accept any such accusation.”

A redacted version of the Mueller report, released Thursday, extensively details efforts by the Russian GRU military intelligence service to hack servers at the Democratic National Committee and a campaign waged by the Internet Research Agency to influence American voters ahead of the 2016 contest. The agency is owned by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, an associate of Russian President Vladi­mir Putin.


“In the form it’s been published in, the Mueller report does not contain any new information,” Peskov told reporters in Moscow. “Everything in it has already been reported by the media in one way or another.” Peskov, who serves as Putin’s spokesman, also lamented that the report and the nearly two-year investigation it was based on have harmed U.S.-Russia relations, which have been in steady decline since 2014.


Echoing the Kremlin’s line, the Foreign Ministry’s top diplomat for North America, Georgy Borisenko, said Mueller’s report “confirms the absence of any arguments proving Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. election.”
