People are claiming Mueller was limited to Russian interference

If that's the case then I'd like an explanation for Manafort's convictions.

1. Obvioulsy trump commited every crime possible including conspiracy and obstruction

but he cant be indicted.

I thought Jr and Kushner would be and Assange. I am disappointed but if I give up on the report then we are hopeless, I am not there yet.

2. Because he's guilty of conspiracy against the US for starters

Paul Manafort, Trumpís former campaign chair, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy against the US and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice

4. Mueller was limited.

That is why he handed off non Russian interference to other districts. That don't have the restriction.

6. Yet

 

Mueller handed down indictments unrelated to Russia yet Jared and Junior walk free?

I'm striving for clarity.
I'll admit I'm in the dark.

7. (ii)

 

Why Jared and Junior aren't in this I don't know.
They should have been interviewed don't you think?

11. Not if Mueller felt they weren't part of the scope...

of the investigation and/or referred them to other jurisdictions.

From what I recall, no one has faced charges re: the Trump Tower meeting, so there could a) not be enough information for Mueller to indict, or b) it's been referred elsewhere for pursuit.

15. Oh FFS.Nobody even knows the title of the report let alone what's actually in it.

Take a chill pill and watch Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell. They explain why it's *way* too early to call this a Trump victory.

10. Not so fast, we're not done with Manafort yet and there are 36 other criminals

New York Charges Manafort With 16 Crimes. If Heís Convicted, Trump Canít Pardon Him.

The new state charges against Mr. Manafort are contained in a 16-count indictment that alleges a yearlong scheme in which he falsified business records to obtain millions of dollars in loans, Mr. Vance said in a news release after the federal sentencing.

12. Manafort's convictions were for matters not directly related to the election.

14. Part of the charges (the ones tried in DC)

were related to him giving campaign polling data to a known Russian intelligence operative (Kostya Kilimnick).

Mueller was also making the case that Manafort was in debt to Oleg Deripaska for millions of dollars which was why he was trying to secure fraudulent bank loans and why he agreed to work for the Trump campaign for free (because he was getting a quid-pro-quo from Deripaska on behalf of Putin).

That's the link to Russian interference.
