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.
Anti-Trump RINO Nancy Mace Supports Retooled ‘Equality Act’ in Attempt to Dupe Conservatives
Mace is a disgrace.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) is supporting a watered down version of the Democrats’ “Equality Act” in an attempt to dupe Republicans into supporting the anti-conservative social justice legislation.
Former Delaware senate candidate Lauren Witzke is drawing attention to Mace’s latest sell-out as she attempts to drive the GOP away from Trumpism:
The Equality Act must be destroyed, not repackaged into a decorated word salad so Republicans can digest it @NancyMace.
It’s not too late, END this NOW.
— Lauren Witzke (@LaurenWitzkeDE) March 3, 2021
“RINO low IQ idiot, Congresswoman Nancy Mace is trying to repackage the Equality Act so the Republicans can pass it without getting backlash,” Witzke explained in a post on Telegram. “Same policy, different wording. Leave it up to republicans to raise the worst bill in U.S. history from the dead instead of lighting [its] corpse on fire.”
“I strongly support LGBTQ rights and equality,” Mace told me. “No one should be discriminated against.”
Mace made it clear that helping trannies become mainstreamed in society as they push to convince little children to change their birth gender is a priority of hers.
“It isn’t a black-and-white issue,” she said, “I do believe that religious liberty, the First Amendment, gay rights, and transgender equality can all coexist. I’m also a constitutionalist, and we have to ensure anti-discrimination laws don’t violate First Amendment rights or religious freedom.”
“I have friends and family that identify as LGBTQ,” Mace added. “Understanding how they feel and how they’ve been treated is important. Having been around gay, lesbian, and transgender people has informed my opinion over my lifetime.”
Mace wants to give LGBT members additional special privileges so she can receive plaudits from the mainstream media, even if it may be completely opposed to the long-standing principles of the GOP.
“There can be that balance,” Mace insists. “The Fairness for All Act … do[es] just that,” she offered. “We put in protections for religious liberty.”

Big League Politics has reported on how Mace threw Trump under the bus as she denied the existence of voter fraud in last year’s election:
Freshman Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC), who ran as a pro-Trump Republican to obtain Congressional office, has emerged as the most vicious Never Trumper in the chamber.
Mace is leading a purge against her colleagues who opposed the certification of dubious electoral college results last week. Mace even wants the deep state to investigate one of her colleagues in what is an egregious violation of her colleague’s 1st Amendment rights.
Mace first attacked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a freshman pro-Trump lawmaker who has received frequent attacks from the fake news media. Mace repeated debunked talking points that Greene is a member of the QAnon movement, whose adherents were involved in last week’s Capitol siege.
“I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence,” Mace is reported as saying on a text thread featuring freshmen GOP lawmakers.
After Greene mentioned Black Lives Matter terrorism and told Mace “don’t believe the fake news,” Mace responded back with a rude, catty and unprofessional quip: “Literal QAnon lady trying to deny she’s a QAnon lady.”
… Mace is not content on merely insulting pro-Trump reps. She actually wants the deep state to investigate her pro-Trump colleagues and potentially charge them for supporting the president’s rally last week.
Mace is making even Dan ‘McCain 2.0‘ Crenshaw look good by comparison. The Trump-led GOP should consider putting her scalp on the wall so-to-speak during next year’s primary elections.
