#MuellerHearings time. Mueller's opening statement plainly states that Russia interfered in the U.S. election in "sweeping and systematic fashion". There was not evidence to conclude that any Trump members were part of the conspiracy.

(it's so early here in CA...)
There remain many people in kook media who are unable to wrap their heads around that distinction - interference and collusion are two separate things and always have been - and muddle it all into disparaging "muh Russiagate" b/c it's politically expedient. #MuellerHearings
Another restatement from Mueller in his closing sentence: Russia interfered in the U.S. election and "this deserves the attention of every American." #MuellerHearings
Nadler moves pretty quickly into disabusing the narrative that anything in the Mueller report "exonerates" President Trump. No total exoneration. No exculpation. #MuellerHearings

Guess we are likely to see some angry presidential tweets shortly.
Now @RepDougCollins - who starts by acknowledging that active measures and Russian hacking happened (glad we're there) - uses his q time for a rapid-fire re-statement that "collusion is not a specific offense" while conspiracy is, but that the two are synonymous. #MuellerHearing
@RepDougCollins "The Russian government was implicated" - blunt statement by Mueller. The idea that 'it wasn't Russia' since the IRA 'is owned by an oligarch, not the Russian govt' has been a narrative in tankie fever swamp land lately. This statement points back to GRU hack. #MuellerHearing
@RepDougCollins For anyone watching #MuellerHearing who wants to see the IRA effort, picture slides (memes & graphs!) here from our SSCI report: cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4326998/… and whitepaper here: reneediresta.com/ira-report-4e8… Our findings from SSCI data set also note strong preference for Candidate Trump.
@RepDougCollins Some questioners - Rep. Chabot particularly pronounced here - have been notable for their complete inability to pivot to more relevant topics when it is obvious that Mueller has nothing to say on their pet bugaboo ("outside of my purview" repeated over & over) #MuellerHearings
