For two years, two consistent themes have characterized the Russia investigation:
- Trump campaign officials and advisors were in regular contact with Kremlin-tied Russians and a Russian cutout (Wikileaks)
- Those officials and advisors repeatedly lied about those contacts.

Virtually the only thing that's new in Stone indictment is that 1) campaign sent HIM out to contact WL 2) They're playing hardball.

Too late. Reap it.https://t.co/ksFqFvvyIC↓ Story continues below ↓
