Here is a copy of the actual indictment. Indictment.
Count One of the indictment is that these foreign citizens did not disclose that they were going to publish anything political.
Count Two - Some of the people used false names for bank accounts.
Counts Three through Eight - Some of the people involved Some of the people involved used false identities.
Those are the charges filed against the 13 defendants. It is NOT alleged that any Americans helped them or knew what they were doing. It is NOT alleged that anything they did effected the outcome of the election. It is NOT alleged that they were involved in the hack of the DNC. It is NOT alleged that they worked with the Trump campaign.
The corporate media is reporting this as foreign nationals attempting to effect the outcome of our election and attempting to hide their identity so people would assume they were Americans. Hmmm. Lets apply this logic to others. Let us consider the fact that most illegal aliens use false identities and social security numbers to get work here, they would be guilty of the same crimes. Let us also assume that many illegal aliens send money back to their families in Mexico using false identifications. Let us further assume that many illegal aliens protested against Trump and tried to effect the outcome of the elections. I can prove each of those assumptions. Shouldn't they therefore be indicted too?
Let us consider this, late night talk show hosts John Oliver, James Cordon and Trevor Noah are all foreign nationals who attempted to effect the outcome of the election and were paid to do so.
Let us also remember that BBC America and Univision did anti-Trump pieces and played them in America. Hmmm, notice anything inconsistent with what you are being told and how "justice" is being applied? It gets better, Richard Steele was a British spy and compiled and distributed the Trump dossier to effect the outcome of the election and he paid Russian government agents for his information. Shouldn't he be indicted?
It is likely that Mueller is wrapping up his investigation and this is the best he could come up with. In the end this is not about Russia and Trump, it is an attack on free speech in America. Should you be allowed to know what people in other nations think about our candidates? If we have a free and open internet you can.
The Guardian - Only the EU can break Facebook and Google's dominance. According to George Soros, in order to keep an open society we need to regulate what is said on the internet. Now that is some twisted logic.
MSN - CNN - Twitter failed to remove hundreds of Russian propaganda videos aimed at Americans.
These indictments are an attack on what the American public can read and hear. Should it be illegal to read "Mein Kampf" or "The Communist Manifesto", what about reading Rousseau or Locke or Hobbs or even Plato, they were all about politics and published by foreigners? The hope of the establishment is that they can keep political speech that disagrees with the corporate media from being viewed by you, that is what this is all about.
