Twitter explodes after Mueller indictments, Sean Hannity quickly declares ‘No collusion.’

Social media erupted Friday afternoon after the Department of Justice announced that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities as part of the Mueller investigation.

No Americans were named in the indictments, which focused on alleged “information warfare” and “disinformation campaigns” by several persons and groups, with some of these efforts beginning as early as 2014.

Spectators throughout the political spectrum reacted to the news, which included a statement by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that “There is no allegation in the indictment that the charge conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

“Part of the problem. The FBI has been busy chasing down 13 Russian non-citizens who ‘disparaged Hillary Clinton’ instead of chasing down a tip that Nikolas Cruz could shoot up a school full of American kids.”

“13 Russian nationals have been indicted for the intent to interfere in the 2016 election. So when did Trump collude with the Russians? Oh, that’s right. He didn’t. But the Democrats did!”

Ben Shapiro had a few words to say to detractors of the president who refused to drop their allegations of collusion even though Rosenstein said no Americans knowingly participated in the disinformation campaigns, and that any participation was “unwitting.”

“Because collusion involves intent,” Shapiro tweeted in response to Commentary magazine editor Noah Rothman, who wrote:

“Why people are convinced ‘unwitting’ cooperation with a hostile foreign power amid a state-directed disinformation campaign is exculpatory is bizarre in the extreme.”

Sean Hannity flatly declared “no collusion.”

Many Twitter users, including Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, said the indictments disrupted the longstanding collusion allegations against the president.
