"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 announced Friday.

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

Note: despite what Trump says, this DOES NOT exonerate him or "prove" he didn't collude or that the outcome of the election wasn't swayed. The indictments make NO statement one way or the other about whether Trump or his campaign colluded or whether the Russian interference gave Trump his victory. The investigation is ongoing and the very most that can be said at this point is that Trump and his campaign haven't been indicted of anything YET.

@noelle Thank you!! This investigation is likely going to take an obscenely long time and finding answers is going to be extremely difficult.

I, for one, am glad it's being pursued to the extent which it is; those in power need to be held accountable.

At the same time, I have no real trust in the powers that be and strongly feel that we need to keep on focusing on revolution while this carries on.

@noelle

me, as a joke: wow, this fake Russian interference is getting really elaborate

some actual people who are obsessed with proving somehow that Trump was still a better choice than Clinton because it will prevent the possibility in their mind that they were tricked or wrong in some way: wow, this fake Russian interference is getting really elaborate

probably pineapple guy: wow, this fake Russian interference is getting really elaborate

humanity: abandon all hope ye born here
