BREAKING: Robert Mueller Just Indicted 13 More People For Election Meddling

You know, for being “FAKE NEWS,” Robert Mueller’s investigation sure is yielding a lot of indictments.

On Friday, 13 Russians and 3 organizations joined former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn (guilty plea), former foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos (guilty plea), and former campaign aide Rick Gates (who is reportedly close to a plea deal), and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort (indicted) as people who find themselves in legal trouble in connection with Russian election meddling.

The Hill reports that the targets are those Russian trolls conservatives keep telling us didn’t meddle in the election:

The charges allege that the Russians posed as U.S. people, created false U.S. personas and stole the identities of real U.S. people or order to interfere with U.S. elections, including the presidential contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

“From in or around 2014 to the present, Defendants knowingly and intentionally conspired with each other (and with persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury) to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the government through fraud and deceit for the purpose of interfering with the U.S. political and electoral processes, including the presidential election of 2016,” the indictment reads.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to announce charges later today.
