Mueller indictments prove one thing: Hillary Clinton is to blame!

By Rex Huppke, Tribune Content Agency on

After reviewing the charges against three former members of Donald Trump's presidential campaign -- the first charges to come from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election -- I have reached the following conclusion: LOCK HER UP!

By "HER" I mean Hillary Clinton, and by "LOCK" and "UP" and the exclamation point I mean put Clinton -- aka, "HER" -- behind bars.

The indictments of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates, along with a guilty plea by former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos show the obscene lengths Clinton went to in an effort to make Trump look bad.

Honestly, it's shameful. Not only is she responsible for this entire "witch hunt," as Trump calls the Mueller investigation, but now she's seeing to it that actual witches get caught, a move that GREATLY LESSENS the dismissiveness of calling something a witch hunt.

LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP!

Manafort and Gates are charged with conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and acting as unregistered foreign agents, among other things. The charges largely revolve around work they did for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine.

Papadopoulos, a 2009 graduate of DePaul University in Chicago, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of a deal. According to court documents, he had multiple interactions during the campaign with an overseas professor he believed to be connected to the Russian government and was told the Russians had "thousands" of Clinton's emails. The documents say Papadopoulos tried to arrange a meeting between Russian government officials and members of the Trump campaign.

In response to these developments, Trump sensibly tweeted: "But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????"

That is such a good question, and it truly merits five question marks.

If there's one thing we know, Crooked Hillary is to blame for everything. Why? Because Republicans want her to be, and it's not possible to believe in two controversies at the same time.
