Twitter Goes Nuts After 13 Russian Nationals Indicted For Election Meddling: ‘It’s Mueller Time’

On a day chockful of major news, Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped an absolute bombshell as the DOJ brought charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Based on the 37-page federal indictment, it is alleged that the Russians impersonated American people, created false identities and stole the identities of others. It also notes that the goal was to damage Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign while helping then-candidate and now-President Donald Trump.

Based on these blockbuster charges that essentially state that the intelligence community was right all along and that Russian election interference is not a “hoax,” as the president has claimed, it is no surprise that the internet went absolutely wild over this news.

Here’s just a sampling of the reactions on Twitter:
