1. They didn't know they were dealing with Russians most likely. Note it does NOT exclude

... Benedict Donald's current Kremlin Clan

15. Perhaps they didn't know it was Russians

they were working with. It seems like they would have had to know they were spreading negative, even fake, stories. Anything to win.

4. Media are running with that like crazy, BTW

 

It was CNNís Underflag for quite awhile; same as MSNBC. Bobble heads were using it with almost every other phrase all afternoon

Emphasizing much?

13. Rosenstein said it, IIRC, but I dont know if he was reading from the indictment

 

Dunno why Mueller would include language like that in his paperwork. Seems to be working against the thrust of the investigation

No need to say whoever the contacts were acted as unwitting agents

They arenít part of the indictment. Why would he specify at this point whether theyíre witting or not.

That would make for a problem if he ends up seeking one against them

5. He's saying that the GOPers who dealt with

the hidden Russians were "dupes". He's not talking about the Russians who actually MET in person with tRump campaign officials.

7. If I had to guess...

The expression refers to small fry crooks that directly dealt with the Internet Research Agency that thought they were engaging in typical cybercrime and not an elaborate Russian espionage plot.

Doesn't mean that there aren't going to be many more indictments of higher ups that were in the know about the broader plot. I'm pretty sure Kushner and Junior are completely boned at this point.

8. He's saying that there were some unwitting people involved BUT he also left the door wide open

for some WITTING people to be involved. And there are unnamed co-conspirators, who could be practically anyone.

10. It means the trumps knew what they were doing, but claimed stupidity.

Same as nitwits. Dumb fucks, gullible , idiots, easily fooled, not sure that is a defense but they are trying to use it.

17. I assume it means they did not realize

 

they were acting as agents of a foreign power.

'Course, stupidity and/or ignorance is not an excuse in a criminal case...but it does leave open an escape hatch for those who wish to desert the sinking ship. I think Mueller is extending a welcoming hand to anyone who might suddenly feel the need to testify.
