Republican National Committee national spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany slammed Democrats over the recent indictment of 13 Russians.

“Today marks the day that the Democrats’ Russia collusion conspiracy theory unraveled. Because what we learned is astonishing,” she said during a Friday interview on Fox News. “We learned the Russians were also organizing for Bernie Sanders, we learned that in late November of 2016 they then turned their efforts to be against President Trump, that their goal was to sow discord and chaos, not to promote a certain candidate and that no Americans were involved in this plot they uncovered.”

“This is astonishing,” McEnany continued. “It backs up what the Democrats have said all in along, Dianne Feinstein saying it was all based on rumors and newspapers but not necessarily evidence. Now we know that to be true. Democrats deceived this country, and they were caught today.” (RELATED: RNC Spokeswoman Slams Journo For Calling Pelosi Attacks Sexist)

In a press conference Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said “There’s no allegation in this indictment that any American had any knowledge.”

“And the nature of the scheme was the kept defendants took extraordinary steps to make it appear that they were ordinary American political activists, even going so far as to base their activities on a virtual private network here in the United States so if anybody traced it back to the first jump, they appeared to be Americans.” (RELATED: Rosenstein: No American ‘Had Any Knowledge’ In Russian Meddling Indictment)
