Mueller just took another scalp in his long campaign to lop off President Trump’s fine, orange-tinted hair.

The Special Counsel leading the Trump-Russian collusion investigation just helped orchestrate a grand jury indictment against 13 Russians for their interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. They have been charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S., among other crimes.

Here is the breaking news via Axios:

A DC federal grand jury has brought charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for violating criminal laws to interfere with the 2016 U.S. election, according to documents released by the Justice Department.

The defendants are all charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S., three are charged with conspiracy to commit wire and bank fraud, and five of which are charged with aggravated identity theft, according to a statement released by the Department of Justice on Friday.

You can see part of the indictment here:

This, of course, doesn’t mean the individuals indicted actually affected the outcome of the presidential race. There has been no proof offered so far that Russian interference in the campaign directly correlated into Donald Trump’s astounding victory against Hillary Clinton. Nor has it been proven that Trump colluded in any way with the Russian government in his quest for the presidency.

Expect liberals to hop all over this news, proclaiming that it’s just a matter of time before “Trump goes to jail!” That couldn’t be further from the truth.
