Chalk up another victory in the new Cold War that's incongruously being fanned up by the left: Robert Mueller has obtained grand jury indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for allegedly hacking into the Clinton presidential campaign and Democratic Party and releasing tens of thousands of emails and memoes deemed "politically damaging" (i.e., they revealed to the voters what was actually being said and done) in a "sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election."
At this point, before Democrats hyperventilate, I should note that the announcement stressed that no Americans were involved and the hacking had no effect on changing any ballots. So sorry, Trump really is the President, and he will stay that way.
I would also add that if a relentless prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich, this is the equivalent of indicting a dozen bowls of borscht. Mueller previously made a media splash by indicting several Russian companies, apparently assuming they would never show up in court to answer the charges and demand to see his evidence. Oops, one of them did! Major embarrassment that Mueller has been backtracking away from furiously. This time he must be hoping to avoid a similar fiasco by indicting 12 Russian spooks who are about as likely to show up in an American courtroom as I am at a Peter Fonda movie.
On the plus side, at least this investigation has finally targeted someone or something remotely related to its mission. We should be doing everything possible to discourage foreign interference in our elections (although, curiously, Democrats who are so exercised over unverified "Russian collusion" rumors don't seem to mind letting non-citizens actually vote.)
Still, it's hard to work up too much rage at Russia for hacking into US secrets when the people charged with protecting them were reportedly using "password" as a password and sending classified documents over an unsecured homemade server stored in the bathroom next to the Glade air freshener.
If you're dumb enough to leave your car in a bad neighborhood with the windows down and the key in the ignition, and someone steals it, sure , it's still a crime; but don't expect me to feel a lot of sympathy for you. Or vote for you for President.
