The special counsel's office said Friday that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities in the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
The indictment says that the defendants allegedly, by early to mid 2016, were "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump ... and disparaging Hillary Clinton."
An announcement from special counsel Robert Mueller's office said that the government accuses all the defendants of conspiracy to defraud the United States. Three defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud. Five defendants are charged with aggravated identity theft.
Air cover for the FBI botching the Florida shooting.
Grasping at straws in the wind.
So this is Mueller’s out?
and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”
Like the Clinton Crime Machine was not disparaging Trump?
“supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump ... and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”????
I guess in their mind that is a crime.
Ha, let me guess, their “names” are MAGA4EVER80985, JAILHILLARY0102030405, etc.
Apparently you can indict 13 Russian ham sandwiches.
bloggers, that’s all he has.
Somehow I doubt that the Russians wanted Trump to become President. They already had bribed the Clinton’s and had them in their hip pockets.
They didn’t ‘botch’ the Florida shooting, they carried it out as planned. (sent in better shooters)
Well, if illegal aliens have Constitutional protection, I suppose Russians have also. However, this is, of course, misdirection and nonsense.
The statement read: “A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia returned an indictment on Feb. 16, 2018, against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities accused of violating U.S. criminal laws in order to interfere with U.S. elections and political processes. The indictment charges all of the defendants with conspiracy to defraud the United States, three defendants with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants with aggravated identity theft.”
Mueller is criminalizing the act of “disparaging Hillary Clinton”
Thought this was from The Onion!
Sorry Russians- no free speech for you!
Is Mueller going to indict any Russians for bribing the Clinton’s or the president of Mexico, or the Pope, and other foreign leaders for openly supporting and campaigning for Clinton?
It sure seems strange that every time there is news of the FBI bungling something, Mueller leaks info about his “investigation”.
IG report must be getting close to release.
Anyone have a link to the indictment docs?
Whoa whoa whoa... the argument for illegal immigrants is that the US Constitution applies to the world - regardless of citizenship.
Ergo - you cant indict the Russians for exercising their first amendment rights.
Even then - whats the crime? Whats the evidence?
If they purchased issue ads then George Soros needs to be hauled off in chains.
