There are a lot of questions surfacing these days, about Russian hackers, campaign backers, Twitter attackers, and how to pronounce Independent Council Robert Mueller's last name. (It's MULL-er)
Trying to keep track of everyone involved in the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow is enough to drive anyone to drink (alleged) Russian vodka. To help you - and maybe even Members of Congress – Countable has put together this Cliff’s Notes of the main players, and key dates, of the Russia investigation. We will continue to update this as facts come to light.

On the issue of collusion and every other, trump is trying to create a smokescreen to hide the truth. The indictments of Manafort and Gates and the guilty plea of Papadopoulos are serious, yet trump keeps crying Hillary. Clinton is no longer running against trump. I believe he is fearful of women that are strong enough to speak out against him. Once again a deflection of the Russian probe. We still are waiting to see what happens with Flynn. The Uranium One Deal has been proven baseless months ago. The Treasury Department approved that deal. Hillary knew nothing about it. There is no evidence that Hillary had anything to do with this. The more trump talks about Hillary, Hillary is a sign that the Russian probe is starting to suffocate trump. The Mueller Investigation needs to move on at all costs and must be protected.
It is imperative that the Mueller investigation move forward, and it not be impeded in any manner or by anyone. Additionally, we must keep our eye on the ball. This investigation is about Russian interference in our election process and possible ties to the Trump campaign. This is not about private citizen Hillary Clinton. Can we have grown ups at the table that focus on the task at hand. Five year olds say but she did that to me. Focus people!
Countable, please stop calling this Russian “meddling”. This was an attack on multiple fronts on our democracy that quite possibly is still going on. The list of possible evidence is too long to state here. Maybe we should start asking ourselves why certain republican officials remain silent.
There must be a congressional pledge to protect Robert Mueller and his investigation. Robert Mueller is an honorable man, he presided over the FBI and just a few years ago was confirmed to continue to be the FBI director by all 100 members of the Senate. He is Marine veteran and has ethically and honorably headed many investigations. The man is known for following the facts and letting the law guide his actions. The innocent therefore have nothing to fear, and the United States as a whole will be better for his investigation, as there are essentially to possible outcomes. A: the Trumps and the Trump administration did not violate the law, and there is no evidence of wrong doing. B: The Trumps or members of the Trump administration committed criminal acts that may include conspiracy against the United States and collusion with a foreign power to undermine our electoral process and democracy, treason, obstruction of justice, financial crimes, lying to a federal agent, and ethics violations. Based on the guilty pleas (which are an admission of committing a crime) B is more likely, and therefore the investigation is source of anxiety for two groups; those with agendas requiring the Trumps in office, or those who committed a crime. Any attempt to besmirch his name is political, and an attempt to publicly undermine justice by those who fear what he may find. We cannot allow a foreign power to undermine our electoral process, and we cannot allow a GOP hijacked by immortality and criminals to try to obstruct this investigation. Vladimir Putin, his allies, and his co-conspirators have attacked the United States and the free world with whataboutism, false reporting, and trolls as well as through more heinous actions involving bribery, corruption, and murder. It is time that we contain this threat through severe economic sanctions on Putin and his allies, as well as by military force if need be.
Senator Rubio they were all involved and you know it Stop stupid diversion about Hillary and do some real work. STOP LIES ABOUT TAX BREAKS FOR MIDDLE CLASS. THE DOUBLING OF DEDUCTIONS DOES NOTHING BUT WELFARE FOR PEOPLE THAT DON’T PAY TAXES AND HAVE NO DEDUCTIONS. STOP BREAK TO CORPORATIONS THAT ONLY PAY 18 % ON AVERAGE TODAY BECAUSE OF BREAKS
When is countable going to list the Clinton foundation and Hillary campaign collusion? When are you going to at least mention the over $100 million that Hillary got from RUSSIA?! How about mueller that has helped cover up the dnc and Clinton campaign wrongdoings while Hillary was the Secretary of State? If you need help let us know and we’ll fill you in
I believe these are just a "few"of those republican folks involved with Russia. How many republicans in congress are involved. I find it ironic that they investigated Clinton to the hilt at our expense and if she had been elected they would have impeached her for trumped up charges immediately and yet with all that Putin/trump has done; giving international FBI secrets to the Russians IN THE WHITE HOUSE, refusing to put sanctions on Russia and the list goes on and on. Destroying democracy and putting in its place an business gangster oligarchy seems to be the plan .
The uranium claim is another distraction by trump and is his effort to get rid of mueller. When will people let Hillary go? This was 2010 and for nuclear power to a Canadian company. It was legit, hrc wasn’t involved. It is another desperate attempt by trump to get away from Mueller. Stay the course, Russia attacked our democracy and has succeeded in dividing our country. We need to deal with Russia and whomever was involved through our legal system quickly. We don’t even have sanctions yet!
If we want to Make America Great Again, let’s start by bringing something back that I believe may have truly existed in our history: dignity, honesty, respect for humankind, integrity, a unified Country. We can start by ethically cleansing (Ethics, not Ethnic) all of the corruption in our Government and all public offices, including law enforcement. These are the true traitors and domestic terrorists of the United States. No Citizen wins when there is unethical and immoral practices in our Governing entities. If we had true Ethics policies instilled in our Constitution (s), it would be more difficult for most of the corrupt policies to be approved. Let’s go to the Root Cause and address issues and make sure it is nearly impossible for unethical practices to exist in our nation and our society. Let’s make Ethics part of our culture. Let’s put people, wildlife and environment first over Corporations. Let’s make America Great, NOW, like it never was before. We have an opportunity to follow the Ten Commandments or whatever moral and ethical values you want, to cleanse our society of this destructiveness. Once we stop attacking specific groups, or chasing special interests for greed and power, the hatred will subside, the anger will go away and the feeling of community may come back and it may be possible for all to live the American Dream, not just the 1%, or the 10%.
