Russia will continue to attempt to interfere in U.S. elections, former Congressman Jason Chaffetz said Monday.

"Russia is no fan of the United States of America. We better get used to it, because they're going to do it again," Chaffetz said Monday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet over, Chaffetz said. "Until Mr. Mueller takes a big bow and you see him at the camera, this thing is not over," the former congressman, now Fox commentator, said.

"The Russians wanted discord throughout the United States. And people like Devin Nunes for years have been talking about this."

The former congressman said there had been no details "directly implicating" former President Barack Obama. He also said that Obama and allies did not act because they assumed Hillary Clinton would be elected president.

"That was always their game plan and every poll that was out there said that that was going to happen. As long as it was going to go Hillary Clinton's direction, of course they weren't going to get too involved," Chaffetz said.
