The Democrats have not been doing well in digging up evidence against President Trump, so they have been making up complaints. Rep Adam Smith went onto the Tucker Carlson Show and did himself proud by telling an outright lie with a straight face when he knows everyone in America knows he’s making it all up. Smith told Tucker that Mueller just indicted twelve Russians who have close contact with Trump officials.

“There is no allegation in this indictment that Americans knew they were corresponding with Russian intelligence officers,” said Rosenstein, who also noted there is no evidence the alleged hacking had any impact on the election results.
The indictment does mention that Russians provided opposition research to a congressional candidate, although that individual is not named.
The indictment claims the conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, “received a request for stolen documents from a candidate for the U.S. Congress. The Conspirators responded using the Guccifer 2.0 persona and sent the candidate stolen documents related to the candidate’s opponent,” the indictment reads.
The charges come just days before President Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Mr. Trump shouldn’t be meeting with Putin one-on-one.
“There should be no one-on-one meeting between this president and Mr. Putin. There needs to be other Americans in the room,” Warner told reporters Friday.
Rosenstein said he briefed Mr. Trump on the indictment earlier this week.
Rep. Adam Smith: The crime is they hacked into our DNC server and did a whole bunch of other disinformation campaigns to try to influence our election. A foreign power tried to do that. Also in this indictment it shows that the twelve Russian operatives had regular contact with high-ranking Trump officials. (No, it does nothing of the sort. That is a blatant lie)
If Deep Stater Rod Rosenstein goes out of his way to admit no collusion, why would we believe Smith?
