MUNICH -- Just hours after the Justice Department indicted 13 Russians in what it said was a broad conspiracy to sway the 2016 election, President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, accused Moscow of engaging in a campaign of "disinformation, subversion and espionage" that he said Washington would continue to expose.

When trump falls, it will be interesting to see the effect on others on both sides. All the little tremors the investigation creates is going to result in a big bang. (Background music- “ I fought the law and the, law won...!”)

The evidence of a Russian effort to interfere in the election "is now incontrovertible," McMaster said.
...
Nov, 2017 -"He said he didn't meddle. He said he didn't meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.
...
This is why relying on Trump for credible information is dangerous. The man says whatever suits his agenda and will not speak honestly with the American public. It took indictments with evidence by Mueller to get at least one member of Trump's administration to admit there was meddling.
...
With regards to Trump's claims that because it started in 2014 he could not be tied to it, that also shows how ignorant he is of the process. I say ignorance because I frankly don't think the man can hold two thoughts in his mind and connect the two. What Trump fails to understand is that in 2014 the Internet Research Agency, the Russian troll factory that was cited in the indictments, was just ramping up its efforts, laying the groundwork for future efforts.
...
Those came to fruition during the 2016 election with designs to promote Trump and Sanders and tear down Clinton. Fake rallies were organized by the Russians, using Americans as the tools to stage small, but visible protests. Fake stories were promoted in social media feeds, designed to catch the eyes of the Trump demographic and amplify the message.
...
This will continue into the 2018 mid-terms as Russians focus on further dividing the electorate. It is highly possible they will focus on fringe candidates, as they did in 2016 with Trump and Sanders, to create even deeper divisions in Congress and create greater dysfunction than what is already present.

Watch for more members of Congress start to become concerned about Russian meddling as we get closer to Trump’s downfall. Of course, the Arkansas delegation is silent.

I just got my first "like" from a young Russian national on my Facebook page devoted to my memoir. I welcome the visitor, whose page includes little info and appears to be new, but I ponder the timing coincident with my recent escalation of comments against Russian trolling on-line.

Time to implement sanctions. Scolding is not enough.

Well at the point in time that the Trump plague ship starts to sink into his swamp of corruption ,graft and treason , the GOP( perhaps even the turnip truck ones) rats will start to jump ship in pier panic before going down with the Orange Ahab, but will the Fox News zombies cling to Tokyo Rose Hannity as their life preserver (might work as the fellow is bloated with gaseous logic) and remain afloat?

Interesting that the White House is not talking about sanctions. At. All. Must be because of those videos alleged in the dossier.

But...but...libertas says the dossier is "phony!"

Wonder where she got that notion?
