Have You No Sense of Decency, Robert Mueller, At Long Last?

President Donald Trump described Oprah Winfrey as

Here are five key takeaways from the indictment.

"If it was the GOAL of Russian Federation to create discord, disruption and chaos within the USA then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams".

Defendants named in the indictment unsealed Friday, including accused Internet Research Agency employees, "allegedly posed as USA persons, created false US personas and operated social media pages and groups designed to attract USA audiences", according to the Justice Department.

As evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election and its continued efforts to meddle in USA politics becomes next to impossible to deny, Trump is trying out a new tactic in dealing with the matter: blaming Obama.

Last week, Trump even blasted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for allegedly turning a blind eye to the Florida school shooting suspect's disturbing antics on social media platforms and failing to save the lives of 17 children. Instead, the USA president continues to act like a fawning puppy at the mention of the Russian despot's name. Why? They also stole the identities of US citizens to purchase advertisements on social media sites and contact other Americans. The agency allegedly created hundreds of social media accounts with stolen or fictitious identities acting as real activists.

By summer 2016, the IRA had hundreds of employees and was spending $1.2 million each month on their operations, according to The New York Times.

ESPN, FOX aggressively pursuing Peyton Manning for broadcast booth
Before last season, Fox reached out to Manning to see if he would be interested in going into the studio or being a game analyst. I know that sounds conceited, and yes he may be a natural on TV, but those jobs aren't for possibly the greatest QB of all time.

The Vice President of ads Rob Goldman also posted multiple tweets in which he repeatedly said that the company also did not know about Russian Federation interfering in the presidential campaign of 2016 elections using the social media giant until now.

Trump further argued that he has been "much tougher on Russian Federation than Obama" and offered that his successor and other Democrats only pushed the idea of election meddling after winning the White House over Hillary Clinton in 2016. The tweets went viral on Saturday after President Trump described them as evidence that the Russians did not use their campaign to give him victory.

Obama did take action against the Kremlin, imposing strong sanctions and expelling 35 diplomats from the U.S.in December 2016. As an assessment of the indictment in Wired explains, "the indictment recounts a number of instances where events and demonstrations were organized by Russians posing as Americans on social media. And it turns out - some people did". But his critics have often questioned why he has made little effort to prevent another Russian attack in the 2018 midterm elections and beyond. Claims of a "hoax" in tatters.

In a January 2017 news conference as president-elect, Trump said "as far as hacking, I think it was Russian Federation".

After the election, in December 2016, Obama issued sanctions against nine Russian individuals and entities for election meddling. "If you run an ad mentioning a candidate, we are going to mail you a postcard and you will have to use that code to prove you are in the United States", Harbath said in the National Association of Secretaries of State conference at the weekend.
