The Mueller Report: Russia’s Online Interference Campaign

With anticipation typically reserved for a new Harry Potter book, special counsel Robert Mueller submitted his 448 page report into Russian interference in the 2016 election to the Department of Justice in March. Separated into two volumes, the report is breathtaking in its detail and a surprisingly fast read.

Volume one addresses the issue of Russian interference and potential collaboration by members of the Trump campaign. Volume two focuses on acts of obstruction of justice that may have been committed by President Trump during the investigation (narrator: he did). In this entry, I’m going to focus specifically on Russia’s online interference campaign.
