The U.S. Department of Justice announced the indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officials, accusing them of conspiring to meddle in our electoral system.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said he briefed the president “fully” on the grand jury indictment.
So, what does Donald John Trump do? He tells the world yet again today that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling is a “rigged witch hunt.”
Mr. President, this is the farthest thing possible from a “witch hunt.”
It has produced indictments and confessions of wrongdoing; key Trump administration aides are now cooperating with the Mueller legal team. There has been tangible, demonstrable evidence that Russians have attacked the heart of our democratic system of government.
And the president keeps calling it a “witch hunt.”
