Russians Who Helped Trump Win Have Been Indicted

The U.S. Government indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities in connection with alleged improper activities to influence U.S. elections. According to the indictment, the defendants’ operations included “supporting the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.”

None of this comes as a surprise. Despite Mr. Trump’s hollow protestations to the contrary, anyone who has been following developments already knew that Russia had meddled in favor of Mr. Trump. But it might be a wee bit harder for Mr. Trump to stick to his script now that the U.S. Government has formally charged 16 Russian defendants.

Putin helped get his man elected (despite not winning a majority of the votes cast). But this story is far from over.

P.S. 2/17/18: Just came across this gem from last year. What a bright idea: working with the very person and country that’s trying to undermine your country.
