The office of special counsel Robert Mueller announced on Friday that a grand jury indicted thirteen Russian nationals together with three Russian entities (internet firms), all of which are being accused of, let me quote: “supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump … and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”
The indictment reads that Russian entities stole US citizens’ identities to deceptively, let me quote: “communicate with unwitting members, volunteers, and supporters of the Trump campaign involved in local community outreach.”

The special counsel’s office said Friday that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities in the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
The indictment says that the defendants allegedly, by early to mid 2016, were “supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump … and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”
An announcement from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office said that the government accuses all the defendants of conspiracy to defraud the United States. Three defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud. Five defendants are charged with aggravated identity theft.
It took over a year and millions of tax payer money to tell us something we all knew: there was no Trump-Russia collusion. Can we have that money refunded please?
