Kremlin on Mueller Report: ‘Hard to Find A Black Cat in A Dark Room, If It Isn't There’“It’s hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if it isn’t there,” the President’s Spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the release of a summary of Mueller’s report, RT reported.

He added that the Kremlin has seen only the released summary of the report “which, incidentally, does not say anything new, except for the recognition of the absence of collusion”.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also announced that the “political motivation” of Mueller’s investigation was obvious and called the report “a disgrace of American justice”.

In a statement, the foreign ministry expressed hope that Washington would have the “courage” to officially acknowledge that “any slurs about the ‘Russian meddling’ were groundless defamation”.

"Hopefully, there will be time when Washington has enough courage to officially acknowledge that not only there has been no collusion, but all the insinuations about the so-called Russian meddling are groundless slander invented for the sake of domestic political fight in the United States," the foreign ministry said in a statement, according to RIA Novosti.

It also noted that the conclusions of Mueller's investigation on the absence of collusion between Trump and Russia "simply could not be different".

Wrapping up 22 months of the investigation, Mueller’s report found no proof that “the [Donald] Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities”.

However, Mueller’s report does claim that the Russian government sought to influence the 2016 election, via the organization called the Internet Research Agency.

The report accuses the agency of conducting “disinformation and social media operations” to sow discord in US society and alleges that Russian hackers obtained the emails of Hillary Clinton’s associates and passed them to WikiLeaks.
