Defensive much?

Defensive much?

Naturally Rudy Giuliani came out with the most fatuous comment about the indictments:

The White House statement:

“As Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said today:

o “There is no allegation in this indictment that Americans knew that they were corresponding with Russians.

o There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime.

o There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result.”

Today’s charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and no allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result. This is consistent with what we have been saying all along.

Aside from the ridiculous implication that a lack of indictments of the White House in this indictment of a bunch of Russian agents means they are in the clear, they just can't bring themselves to condemn the interference. I wonder why?
