We already know that the basis for the Special Counsel was fraudulent.

Now we're seeing entities being charged with conduct that isn't criminal.

[Short thread on the new court order in the Russian Troll case]
The indictment included "conspiracy against the US" charges for failing to register for social media spends, political activities, etc.
However, the Special Counsel insists that it doesnt have to show Concord "had a legal duty to report."

How is it conspiracy if there's no underlying illegal conduct or no illegal ends?
Here's your answer:

Concord could have interfered with the FEC's ability to determine whether "statutes were violated."

That's it.
This is exceedingly dangerous.

And it gives a roadmap to how the Special Counsel will treat Trump.
