Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian companies Friday for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election by creating “hundreds” of fake social media accounts to share news stories.
“The defendants allegedly conducted what they called information warfare against the United States,” said deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein of “Internet Research Agency LLC, a Russian company based in St. Petersburg.”
The Russians are charged with criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States. Surely, anti-Trump fanatics will use the indictment to come after the president. The indictment states that some people “associated” with the Trump campaign “unwittingly” interacted fictitious Russian-created accounts. But no so fast.
The indicted Russians hyped Hillary Clinton and staged multiple protests against President Trump.
From the indictment:
“At the same time, Defendants and their co-conspirators, through another ORGANIZATION-controlled group, organized a rally in New York called ‘Trump Is NOT My President’ held on or about November 12, 2016. Similarly, Defendants and their co-conspirators organized a rally entitled ‘Charlotte Against Trump’ in Charlotte, North Carolina, held on or about November 19, 2016.”
The New York Times reported in glowing terms on the anti-Trump protest in D.C. on November 12, which was set up by the Russian defendants. The Times even noted a sign held by a protester that read “Putin Won.”
“They were transgender people, the children of immigrants, and parents toting infants on their back. They were families, students, and men and women of all ages and races. Many carried cardboard signs — “Show the world what the popular vote looks like,” read one, “Putin Won,” said another. As throngs marched through city streets, the participants joined in a cry of “Not my president!”
In one of the largest anti-Trump demonstrations since his election on Tuesday, a mass of people marched from Union Square in Manhattan to Trump Tower, the headquarters and home of Mr. Trump. Protesters marched around one of Mr. Trump’s buildings in Chicago. In Los Angeles, thousands of people marched up Wilshire Boulevard, forming a crowd that stretched for nearly a dozen blocks.”
Also from the indictment, this item, which renders the Russian actors’ motives unclear:
Mueller did not indict members of the Hillary Clinton campaign for using Russian disinformation to influence the election.
The Hillary Clinton campaign issued a press release on September 24, 2016 promoting information from the Christopher Steele dossier.
That press release has almost completely been scrubbed from the Internet, but is preserved in at least one tweet and in an Internet archive sponsored by The American Presidency Project.
The Clinton campaign, which funded the debunked dossier in an effort to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Trump Tower, actively promoted a “Bombshell Report About Trump Aide’s Chilling Ties To Kremlin.” The Trump aide with the purported Kremlin ties was Carter Page. The “bombshell report” was a Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff headlined “U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin.”
Rep. Devin Nunes’ intelligence memo makes clear that Isikoff’s article, which was promoted by the Clinton campaign, used Christopher Steele as its source and was used to help obtain the FISA warrant. The FISA warrant application falsely states that Steele did not leak information to Yahoo News.
“We’ve never seen anything like this in American politics,” Hillary for America says in its statement, which called the information in Isikoff’s article “chilling.”
Clinton adviser Adam Parkhomenko tweeted out the statement.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme
The oligarch may be held accountable.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.
Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.
In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)
The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.
Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
