MOSCOW -- The Kremlin says that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 400-page report has not offered any credible evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The redacted report presented on Thursday said that there was no collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian officials but it did document Russian efforts to meddle in the presidential vote.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday that there is "no evidence substantiated by any facts" that Russia interfered in the election and said Moscow rejects the accusations.
Peskov pointed out that President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly rejected the accusations of interference "because there was none." and said that the report proved that.
