^^^^^^
It was always predictable that Trumpistas are giant babies given that their god-king himself is such a coward

all the Republican spokespeople (and the GOP themselves) are telling me on Twitter that this is all good news and completely vindicates Trump.

I don't know if they're all dumb but you'll never get the truth or any kind of good faith out of them.

Fortunately, the Trump klan *is* dumb in a lot of ways, and Robert Mueller is smart.

Mueller's office is going for treason against Donald Trump. It's just a matter of whether he can get enough witnesses to testify against Trump.

We get more flowery tweets/speeches from Jeff Flake and zero use of his constitutional powers as a senator. Check that....since he's a coward & isn't even running for re-election, and since any public Mueller report won't come out til after the midterms, well...I guess we'll first just have to see if Dems at least take the House.

Have to vote them out. As long as they're in power they'll do whatever it takes to keep it.

Of course, but that includes gerrymandering and voter suppression.

Absolutely, that's the #1 concern IMO. Taking back the House is basically a must right now. I shudder to think what they might "accomplish" with 2 more years of unchecked control.

We already know of such activity. So, more of the same, I guess.

I just read the entire indictment. The parts about the American contacts (the US Congress candidate and who, probably Stone?) were eye-opening, but I think the most strikingly thorough part was the case they made for the conspirators actually being Guccifer. The investigation had access to their internet search engine querries they used to pin down the grammar and verbage of a statement Guccifer released later in the day. I mean...damn. If they have this much detail of their operations, wow.

So how screwed is the as-of-now unnamed candidate?
