"It's on", White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.
"I don't think it is me because I wasn't in regular contact with members of the Trump campaign", he said.
"The units engaged in active cyber operations to interfere in the 2016 presidential election", Rosenstein said. But to do it the Friday before the Monday meeting?

"The Russians are nailed".
Apparently, there are no allegations in the indictment that could point towards the active involvement of Americans in such acts.
Rosenstein called for unity in the face of Russian meddling.
Some of the documents and emails were released through a website identified in the indictment only as "Organization 1" - believed to be Julian Assange's WikiLeaks.
The purge comes as Twitter mounts a massive campaign to eliminate bad accounts and what it calls "disinformation" from the service.
Like the criminal case against 13 Russians and three Russian companies that Robert Mueller's Office opened in February, don't expect these Russian spies-turned-hackers to show their faces before a judge.
