It’s all right there in the indictment — day by day – hack by hack – theft by theft — how agents of the Russian intelligence service the GRU – set out in the spring of 2016 to steal the election for Donald Trump.
When you track the actions taken by Russian intelligence in the indictment with statements made by Trump and actions taken on his behalf by members of his campaign – the picture is as clear as an iPhone photo.
Agents of the Russian government coordinated with members of the Trump campaign and took cues from Trump himself in order to influence the election of 2016.
In announcing the indictment Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may have refused to point to a victim of the Russians’ crimes other than to say it was America itself but the intent of the Russians was clear.
They took active measures over a period of at least nine months to aid the campaign of Donald Trump and to damage the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
They stole the election for Donald Trump and he helped them do it.
