    I think the best thing to do is to simply wait until the investigation has been completed. It seems silly to proclaim that there's nothing there or that there is something there.

    Maybe our time would be better served addressing what we do know. We do know that outside entities set out to influence our election. We do know that they continue to work to influence future elections.

    It's time to address how to prevent any future attacks.

    Doubt these Russian bots had much actual effect on the election. I cant wait till Mueller gets to the part about all the Russian disinfo put into the Steele Dossier and into the American News in September thru election day 2016.

    No, its the election laws that prohibit foreigners from expending money to influence an election. An American could have done the same thing without violating those laws.

    Millions and more than a year spent on a special counsel for charges against people and companies who will never be brought to justice.

    Explain why that's your response to his post. I might be missing something, but I think you're confused as to what he's saying.

    That is the progressive spin I see being repeated all over the net, how disingenuous. It shows how desperate they are to keep the narrative alive as their whining and crying for months appear to be in vain. Trump said the Russian collusion angle was a hoax. I think every reasonable person knew that Russia took to social media to throw disinformation out there to confuse things. They had nearly no affect on peoples views and it was the collusion of the MSM and the DNC that had the most affect with their constant disinformation campaign. So now some want us to go to war over some Russian Facebook posts. Obama spent more to interfere with Israels election than Russia spent on ours.

    Communicating with "unwitting individuals" and seeking to "coordinate political activities". Wow. That's injection table stuff for sure.

    I hope Mueller has strong evidence to back these allegations - at least as strong as the failed hacking DNC emails story. Not that he'll ever need to prove it of course, because Russia will never permit their citizens to be extradited to the US.

    In the last analysis it's hard not to conclude that it's nothing but a propaganda story aimed at keeping the nassy 'ol Russians pot boiling.

    It's very difficult to put thist story into any other category that the old British Sunday Sport headlines:

    Quite honestly, Washington's obsessive neurosis about 'those danged Russians' would be hilarious if it wasn't so ominous.

    Emotionally that would be a very nice thing to blast those imperialistic bastards back to the Stone Age. Too bad reality sets in so of course we have that minor matter of those Moskailites having nuclear weapons. LOL,

    Maybe we can set up our own trolls in the Moskail media and foment a nice bloody civil war so they destroy each other. But we will leave that to the fantasy book writers.

    Does anybody really think this type of thing doesn't go on in every election since the cold war? Is this all we got from the millions Mueller has spent?

    Hot Damn! They indicted all those criminal posters on FB. Job well done Mr. Mueller, money well spent. Maybe you could indict a hamburger or two while you're at it. I'm thinking all this talk of nothingburgers must have been rather true, in the end.

    I don't think "we" would wish to arrest them.
    Then some truth might happen!

    This is such a joke. So what if they were posing as Americans. People all the time pose as something they are not online as you so aptly point out.

    This is a thinly veiled attempt at censorship.

    The CIA is also in the business of creating and disseminating propaganda (including meddling in foreign elections) for both an external and internal audience.
