Russian indictments prove Trump won fair and square

Yet the indictments are hardly the final word, and the charges leave plenty of daylight for continued speculation on two fronts.

One is whether Trump or his associates conspired with top Russian government officials, as opposed to the low-level units carrying out the disruption scheme. So far, there is no public evidence of any connection except the discredited Steele dossier that Clinton paid for, but Rosenstein emphasized the limits of the case at hand by using the phrase “in the indictment.”

By the same token, the charges do not deal with whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.
