    “That announcement was seemingly timed to coincide with Donald Trump’s historic meeting with Queen Elizabeth.”

    Any sense here that the real conspiracy is not the ‘Manchurian Candidate’, but those on the other side seeking to undermine a bizarre but legally elected president?

    Personally, of course, I have no idea whether Trump is Vlad’s boy or the victim of a Clintonite coup attempt. What I do find laughable is a US official indicting foreigners for interfering in the election. After observing several decades of unbridled US interference in the domestic affairs of sovereign states, and directly witnessing the effects of recent violent US-led regime-change efforts in MENA I can’t suppress a wry smile at the utter hypocrisy. Actually, it’s more ‘revulsion’ than a wry smile, but that sounds too histrionic.

    • “Whataboutism” at its finest.

      Let me ask you a question: If I steal a TV from your house, do I get to defend myself by saying “well, sure, I robbed him, but other people have stolen things before.”

      Bottom line: Whatever happened and is still happening vis-a-vis U.S. efforts to implement regime change or otherwise influence domestic politics in other countries does not mitigate the circumstances here.

      No matter how many times Fox News or Trump or anyone else points to “hypocrisy” it doesn’t change the facts/evidence here and that’s what drives them so crazy.

    Maybe Trump will ditch the presidency and fly to Moscow with Putin? That would certainly immortalize both men in American history.

    The indictment was for 12 Russians, and 0 Americans. If anything, it backs up trump’s “no collusion” claim. Trump will celebrate.

    Trump and Giuliani may celebrate but this is one of 31 indictments, so far…..and many of those indictments were Americans and members of the Trump campaign or his supporters. There will be more indictments and many more will be Americans.
