As Trump meets with RUSSIAN Putin, media, #resistance go bananas

Today, the president is in Helsinki, Finland, to meet with RUSSIAN President Putin and everyone is freaking out. The meeting comes on the heels of a conveniently-timed announcement that the Mueller investigation has indicted a posse of RUSSIAN operators for meddling in U.S. elections. Really, how about that timing? Right before Trump meets with Putin. It's just so wild.

The RUSSIANS probably won't turn over the indictees for trial, which is too bad since a trial would force the government to reveal what kind of case they have put together, if indeed there is a case, and that this is not just another attempt to undermine Trump. Remember, Mueller indicted a bunch of RUSSIAN entities months ago and was caught off guard when one of the corporations named in the indictments decided to fight back. Now Mueller is forced to show what he has under his belt in a trial or drop the charges, which would be embarrassing, to say the least.
