I'm still not convinced Mueller is working for them. This dog and pony show could work as a precursor to go after HRC and others. Creating precedences is a smart move if you are planning to go after the real culprits.

DEAR GOD!
They purchased political advertisements.

They apparently staged pro and anti Trump rallies at the same time.

U.S. Law also bars agents of any foreign entitty from engaging in political activities within the United States without first registering with the Attorney General.

Yes, indeed they do. Russian influence/interference in the election fits all those criteria pretty well. Again, are you insinuating that what was just released is the 'meat and potatoes' of Mueller's investigation?


I'm not insinuating anything. I explicitly wrote what I meant.

Let's pretend we're adults for a moment. If the way to combat Russia's "interference" and "influence" in the election is to turn off Twitter, there isn't much of a case to begin with.

Maybe not 100% know it all but enough to fire right back and with their laws worse consequences will come down on our agents than theirs.


What are they gonna do? Collapse their economy on us?

The story doesn't have to match up...domestic propaganda is legal and the CIA stocks the media with its agents.

Russia knows all about the US meddling in elections as well. Imagine the world wide outcry if they release that info to the public.

Aggravated identity theft? Conspiracy to defraud the US? Conspiracy to commit wire fraud? Do any of these indictments match up to the story we've been fed ad nauseum over the last couple years?


Yes, they match up quite well in fact. I think what you're overlooking here is that the Mueller "investigation" is actually a handful of separate investigations. These indictments pertain specifically to the influence campaign (Project Lakhta) which included purchasing ads, social media bots, organizing rallies/protests, etc.

Putin may issue indictments against Americans in Russia. As Trump said, America is "not so innocent".

It's pretty much nothing. The worst thing they have allegedly done is stole identities in order to open Paypal accounts. Apparently some employees took a trip through the US in 2014. In terms of election meddling, they bought some ads and posted on social media. It is probably the least effective propaganda campaign in human history.

This is what all the big fuss is about?

Most likely, course the rabid left will most likely try to spin this with Trump involvement.

It's good to see these indictments. Russian's intereference into American politics was very successful and we're still feeling the effects. The Russian Steele Dossier by the DNC/Russians and the Trump campaign witch hunt has divided this country like nothing else.

Finally..this investigation may be ending. Still NO evidence of Trump conspiring with Russia. Still the witch-hunt by the media goes on.

Between rigged primaries, and polling.

Russia could have learned a thing or two from Never Trump.

Or start charging our agents in Russia right now and executing them...because Russia unlike America can play like that since their laws allow for much more nastiness than ours do. And that's the tip of things they can do. Are you really trying to say a country like Russia doesn't have the ability to punish us back? If it was somewhere like Zimbabwe you might have a point but come on man...

Yes. Posting nonsense on social media is the absolute least someone can do to influence an election. I'm not sure how any of this qualifies interference in anything, let alone in an election.

Interestingly, they have a number of direct quotes from communications between individuals involved. I wonder if they've got a cooperating witness or if these were obtained through intercepts or what?
