The House Comes Tumbling Down

While the country is mesmerized with the latest right wing terror attack, and a story of another newly revealed Trump affair, this seems to be getting just about no coverage. There is, for example, currently not one word about it on the Washington Post website, nor at the New York Times website.  From a CNBC story:

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office said Friday that a grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for alleged interference in the 2016 presidential elections, during which they boosted the candidacy of Donald Trump.

The indictment says that the defendants by early to mid-2016 were "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump ... and disparaging Hillary Clinton."

The indictment said "the organization," known as the Internet Research Agency LLC, "sought, in part, to conduct what it called 'information warfare against the United States of America' through fictitious U.S. personas on social media platforms and other Internet-based media."

If you are interested, the story I linked to contains the text of the indictment.

I'm guessing that, given that the President's party controls everything, and cares no more about treason than he does, that this is just one more story that will be written off as meaningless, while Trump and the right go on screaming "no collusion!  fake news!"  And after all, if treason happens in the woods where no one cares to look at it, did it really happen at all?


Update:  Well, some more mainstream media outlets are finally being forced to cover this story, which could be a key piece of the biggest political crime in the history of the United States.  They'd ignore it if they could.
