Robert Mueller has advised Americans to go back and actually read his report if we want to understand what happened in 2016. "We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself," he said on Wednesday morning, speaking publicly for the first time since his appointment. But the words of the report are damning.

"But the words of the report are damning.

"The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion," Mueller wrote. This help "favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton."

The Trump campaign "expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts," and it "welcomed" this help.

"the social media campaign and the GRU hacking operations coincided with a series of contacts between Trump Campaign officials and individuals with ties to the Russian government."

These contacts were covered up by a series of lies, both to the special counsel and to Congress. Lying by the Trump campaign successfully obscured much of what happened in 2016."
