Veterans of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign reacted with a mix of outrage, vindication and exhaustion after the release of Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the last presidential election.
“Apparently it’s not criminal to help foreign agents carry out their plans to disrupt an election,” said campaign manager Robby Mook. “I wish instead of just re-litigating the past we would spend some time crafting laws to prevent this in the future.”
Mueller’s report detailed a comprehensive effort by Russia to damage Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and repeated overtures to Donald Trump’s campaign to assist him. Mueller found contacts between the Trump associates and Russians but wrote that “the investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
