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.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”
Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.
Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.
“You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.”
Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.
“He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.
Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:
Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.
Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”
Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
