Trump Accidentally Admits Russia Investigation Isn’t A Hoax During Meltdown Over Mueller Indictments

Until now, Donald Trump has always referred to the Russia investigation as a ‘hoax’ but sh*t got real when dozens of indictments were handed down on Friday by special counsel Robert Mueller. 13 Russians and 3 groups were among those indicted. Previously, Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty and is cooperating with Mueller; former foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos (guilty, and also cooperating), former campaign aide Rick Gates (who is negotiating a plea deal), and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort were all also indicted. That’s quite a list, and Mueller’s team of investigators has not yet finished its probe into whether members of the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to disrupt and influence the 2016 presidential election. According to a source, the investigation will likely take months. Still, Trump tweeted, “No collusion!”

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President,” President Stable Genius tweeted. “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!”

That didn’t go down well on Twitter.

When Trump was briefed today, he obviously wasn’t paying attention. The Russians started with their operation in 2014, but by 2016 they threw their support behind the former reality show star’s campaign to help him get elected. On top of that, the Russians communicated with ‘unwitting’ people tied to the former reality show star’s campaign. And then, Trump failed to apply sanctions to Russia. Keep tweeting, Mr. Trump. Mueller is watching.
