Not convinced

Friday's indictment of 13 Russians for their work during the 2016 election has brought two distinct reactions.
Anti-Trump people see another step possibly ousting Trump.
Or it's a nothingburger.
Althouse isn't impressed by a New York Times editorial on the subject.
"For the past year, Donald Trump has repeatedly denied the existence of a profound national security threat" and based on the indictment — as laid out in this editorial meant to show how wrong he was — I'd say he was right. And I'm disturbed at how stupid the NYT editors seem to think its readers are. It's almost forgivable that they think people could be so easily confused by some Russian rallies and social media posts. Forgivable, but still deserving of the Trump taunt: fake news.
