Mueller’s grand jury hands down indictments for 15 Russian individuals and entities. Indictment is here. All of the organizations are being charged with conspiracy, fraud, and related offenses in regard to their interference in US elections.
News organizations are pointing out that it is highly unlikely that any of these individuals will ever see a day in court. Such indictments will certainly affect the ability to freely move about in the world for fear of extradition.
What we are overlooking is the absolutely powerful statement these indictments make and their effects on any future narrative about Russian interference in our election. No longer can any arguments be made that:
- There is no proof of a Russian organized attempt to undermine our election.
- The Mueller investigation is a witch hunt.
- The Mueller investigation is a complete waste of time.
Take note Fox news and all of the talking heads. It’s real. It’ always been real. Mueller is not wasting our time and money. It’s not a witch hunt. THE FUCKING INVESTIGATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN OUR FUCKING ELECTIONS.
I don’t believe Mueller is playing politics in announcing these indictments at this time. He appears to be methodical and plodding. These indictments came down at exactly the time they were ready. That being said, I couldn’t be happier about their existence at this time. Perhaps Congress will feel the fire at their feet.
Take note Congress. If anyone is wasting our time and money, it is you. You’ve done exactly jack-shit to protect our upcoming elections. You’ve done exactly jack-shit to shed light on what the Russians did in 2016 with or without the help of the current administration.
Sure, probably nothing will ever come of these indictments. That’s not the point. The point is Mueller is doing exactly the job he was assigned. The overview of the entire investigation is about protecting our country and Mueller is making honest and measurable advances to just that end.
