Ever since the first few months of the 2016 presidential election, the rumors surrounding Russia's involvement in the Donald Trump campaign have only increased. With Democrats having predictably voiced their concern, Republicans have been split on the issue, causing a divide on the political right.

Coulter and Cheney

As Donald Trump picked up stream during his campaign, various news outlets would break stories linking the billionaire real estate mogul and his associates back to Russia in one form or another. Whether it was former advisers like Roger Stone or Paul Manafort, or his refusal to release his tax returns, Trump continued to raise more questions over his ties to the Kremlin than he cleared up.

Since Election Day, it's been all but confirmed that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee in favor of Trump, though some supporters of the president refuse to accept the information as facts. Even former Vice President Dick Cheney spoke out against Russia, which didn't go over well in a series of tweets by Ann Coulter on March 27.

While addressing those in attendance at the Economic Times Global Business Summit in New Delhi, India on Monday, Dick Cheney lashed out against Russia for their reported involvement in the 2016 election.

Cheney said there was a "very serious effort" made by Russian President Vladimir Putin to interfere in the election, going as far as saying, "In some quarters that would be considered an act of war."

Digging up history

Dick Cheney's comments didn't sit well with conservative author Ann Coulter, who called out the former vice president on social media.

"Only Dick Cheney & the NYT still think it was the Russians," Coulter wrote on Twitter, while attaching an article titled "Were Hackers who broke into DNC's email really Russian?"

In a second tweet on the matter, Ann Coulter mocked Dick Cheney for being wrong about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction prior to the 2003 invasion.

"DICK CHENEY, Aug 2002," she prefaced," before posting a Cheney quote reading, "There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them..."

Moving forward

While conservatives appear torn on the issue of Russian interference in the election, the pressure is currently mounting on Donald Trump and the White House. The former host of "The Apprentice" has done whatever he can to deflect from the issue, including his now infamous and baseless allegations that Barack Obama wiretapped his office in Trump Tower during the election.
