Re: today's events:
In February, Mueller released information clarifying how and why #Putin desperately wanted to stop #HillaryClinton from being elected.

Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Jill Stein were helped by Russian election interference  vox.com/policy-and-pol…
In #Helsinki, #Putin stated directly that he worked to elect Trump. His intent was to stop #HillaryClinton. He tried to effectuate that during the primary by targeting Sanders supporters. Putin could not sway non-white voters despite his broad disinformation campaign against HRC.
But even though #Putin was unable to win the primary, he WAS able to plant the seeds of disinformation quite strongly. That included the parroting of #HillaryClinton being "corrupt," which Sanders and Trump had hammered (without evidence) repeatedly. (Details are in the report.)
In addition, #Putin pushed the "revolution" concept to promote Jill Stein. "The two-party system is corrupt, both parties are the same, only revolution will bring change."A handful of celebrities helped push this message.

Again, non-white voters were 90% unswayed by the message.
Last week it was revealed that Jill Stein took millions of dollars from distraught voters putatively to pay for a recount in PA, WI and MI which is actually paying for her defense in the Mueller probe.

There were never any recounts.
Today @SecNielsen claimed there was no evidence that #Russia, at #Putin's direction, attacked the U.S. election in 2016.

There were volumes of evidence, both classified and redacted for unclassified viewing in the @ODNIgov report.
The #DNI report details how Sanders supporters were wooed with disinformation about #HillaryClinton--disinformation we all saw repeatedly on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.

It was compelling & many reporters tried refuting it, but unwittingly, Sanders promulgated it.
One question raised by #TadDevine's total influence over Sanders is why Devine advised Sanders to remain in the primary not just after he lost resoundingly, but for 2mos after it officially ended and even after Obama asked him to withdraw and unite with Hillary against Trump.
Was #TadDevine promised that the intel #Russia was alleging it had on #HillaryClinton would allow Sanders to become nominee? Jane Sanders famously urged the FBI to "hurry up" with their investigation of Clinton(which had actually ended).

Was Devine expecting to install Sanders?
Trump didn't make his public call to #Russia to hack #HillaryClinton's emails until July 27, 2016---during the Democratic convention. But #Russia acted that day.

Was Devine still hoping for a last minute switch at the convention?

These q's may or may not be answered by Mueller.
None of which implicates Sanders. Whatever Tad Devine knew or didn't, it doesn't mean he shared it.

Sanders had a separate agenda. His repeated use of the same term as #Putin used in disinformation is no more implicating than his using Obama's font & message in his signs.
There was one conspiracy: #Putin trying to stop #HillaryClinton from being elected.

Putin's influencing of Sanders supporters was meant to steer voters away from HRC & toward Trump & Jill Stein.

3rd party votes in PA, WI & MI were 800k. HRC lost by only 77k. So it worked.
What Putin didn't count on was the vast disconnect between the way Americans actually voted--choosing #HillaryClinton by 3M more votes than Trump--and the 77 Electoral College votes that allowed him to go to the White House.

That de-legitimized Trump's "win."
Trump has proven to be a willing participant with #Putin as #Helsinki & the past few days have revealed.

As far as #Putin is concerned, he won, since #HillaryClinton did not.

Did Trump know what was in play when he asked for those emails? Did #Manafort & #Devine talk about it?
What should worry everyone now is that Trump is a wild card who no one controls and who has no respect for or fealty to America.
For those who don't believe me:

Also, @mirpinero reminded me that even after the primary was over, Sanders tried to do an end run around Hillary's nomination and get Trump to debate him. Trump toyed with Sanders for a day and then walked away saying it wasn't at all appropriate.
cnn.com/2016/05/27/pol…
In that desperate plea for a debate, Sanders asked Devine to ask Manafort to arrange it.
