Special Counsel issues indictment against 13 Russians

Whoa. This is a brilliant move. If Mueller had indicted Jared, or Donny Shit for Brains Junior, Trump would probably have moved to fire Mueller on grounds of a political witch hunt. But Mueller went for the Russians first which makes it far more difficult for Trump to declare this as just personal.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States, the Department of Justice has announced.

In addition, three defendants were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants with aggravated identity theft.

Mueller has been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as any connections between Russia and Trump campaign associates.

Beginning as early as 2014, the Russian organization Internet Research Agency began operations to interfere with the US political system, including the 2016 elections, according to the indictment, which was released by Mueller’s office Friday.
