"As desperately as President Trump insists that the Special Counsel investigation is a ‘hoax’, these latest indictments build on multiple guilty pleas and indictments of several Trump campaign officials, demonstrating the gravity of the Trump-Russia scandal," Leader Pelosi said, urging support for Mueller's investigation to follow the facts.
Senator Ben Stasse (R-NE) thinks the indictment was Mueller putting Moscow on notice and giving Washington a wake-up call that Russia is coming for us in 2018 and 2020 and we have to take the threat seriously.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday he now recalls a meeting in March 2016 that has come under scrutiny as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether President Donald Trump's election campaign colluded with Russia.
Senate Democrats on Thursday demanded that Attorney General Jeff Sessions be recalled to testify on the Trump campaign's Russia contacts following the disclosure of an effort to set up a meeting for then-Republican candidate Donald Trump with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
