DOJ's criminal charges provide hard evidence that Russian intel agents attacked America to boost their favorite candidates, undermine others, and influence our elections. @realDonaldTrump, cancel your ridiculous Putin summit and get your butt on a plane back to the United States.

There doesn’t seem to have been a single nationally-known Republican above the level of coffee boy who wasn’t part of the Russiagate treason squad…
….but it’s also peppered with blinking neon signs pointing to domestic loose ends left to tie up. Basically, it’s impossible to frame this indictment as “witch hunt,” but also impossible to read it & say “well, now they’re done & the Mueller probe should wrap up."

If this is how much the Mueller team knows about a Russian intelligence operation, I can only imagine what it's learned about the American part of the picture.

Rosenstein said he briefed Trump days ago on the indictments of Russian military intel officers hacking into the DNC and others. Since then, Trump has said flattering things about Putin, knowing the indictments were pending and the evidence the US had about Russian meddling.

Trump and his campaign tried to claim he was kidding. He was not. At that same press conference, minutes later, I asked if it gave him "pause" to ask a foreign government to hack into the emails of any American citizen. He said no and then accused me of trying to "save" Clinton. https://t.co/q0AoC404qV

Obligatory: Mitch McConnell's behavior before the election just looks worse and worse.

(Twitter opinion seems to point at Matt Gaetz, for reasons.)
Roger Stone tells CNN he does not believe he is the unnamed person in the indictment: “My contact with the campaign in 2016 was Donald Trump. I was not in regular contact with campaign officials.” From @mj_lee https://t.co/LLYs6HXgBA

On May 16, 2017, Hannity touted "explosive developments in the mysterious murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich that could completely shatter the narrative that, in fact, WikiLeaks was working with the Russians" https://t.co/0NTyI5G5kb

They've defined 'no collusion' down to 'yeah we coordinated with Russians to hack and steal from Democrats but you haven't proven we knew they were Russians yet.' https://t.co/97mQnEcCPr

Remember, previous Russian indictments were about improper influence.
This one is about an electronic burglary of the DNC HQ.
This is a digital Watergate. https://t.co/mymyEEFbox

“We” didn’t clean house after the original Watergate, because Gerry Ford thought it would be too hard for
his fellow Repubs the delicate American voters to bear. Let’s make sure the current crop of GOP miscreants — some of them actual Watergate holdovers! — don’t get that same unearned forgiveness, yes?
