"He's angry that anybody would try to meddle in our system," replies @PressSec to questions about whether @POTUS specifically upset with Putin/Russia on Election2016 interference.
"He actually called out Russia by name," Sarah Huckabee Sanders says of his reaction to an indictment on Friday that named 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies.
"Just last week we called out on Russia by name" for cyberattacks. "@POTUS "has been tougher on Russia in the first year than Obama in eight years combined."
: "One of the places where you guys seem to get very confused, and it seems to happen regularly: @POTUS hasn't said that Russia didn't meddle. What he's saying is it didn't have an impact, and it certainly wasn't with help from the Trump campaign."
Sanders: "He has taken a number of actions and put pressure on" Russia.
"It didn't have an impact" but @POTUS hasn't said Russia didn't meddle in Election2016.
