Speaking on “Fox & Friends” Saturday, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said that Russia is not to blame for causing “chaos” in America as much as two other groups.

“There are two groups that have created chaos more than the Russians, and that’s the Democrats and the mainstream media,” Gidley said in reference to the ongoing Russian collusion investigation. “[They] continued to push this lie on the American people for more than a year, and frankly Americans should be outraged by that.”

According to a report from The Hill published on Saturday:

Gidley’s comments are part of a recent push from the White House to claim that an indictment filed Friday from Mueller’s team of prosecutors targeting 13 Russian nationals and three organizations for alleged election interference vindicates the president.

President Trump tweeted Friday that the indictment handed down by the special counsel’s office proved that “no collusion” occurred between his campaign and Russia.

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for president,” Trump tweeted. “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong — no collusion!”

“All of these efforts were about sowing confusion in the electoral process and undermining the next president, not about supporting one candidate over the other,” added White House spokesman Raj Shah in an appearance on Fox News.

Despite this, Mueller’s indictment states that Russians pursued the goal of elevating Trump’s campaign while attacking his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

“Defendants’ operations included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump (‘Trump campaign’) and disparaging Hillary Clinton,” the indictment reads. “Defendants made various expenditures to carry out those activities, including buying political advertisements on social media in the names of U.S. persons and entities.”
