CNN’s Chris Cillizza tried to call out President Donald Trump over Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russians Friday, but quickly made clear he didn’t understand the indictment at all.
Cillizza brought up Trump’s previous assertion that email hacking could have been done by Russia, China, “guy sitting on their bed who weighs 600 pounds,” and said, “this, um, didn’t age well.”

The problem? Mueller’s indictment didn’t mention hacking at all.
Really? Which page of the indictment discusses Russian hacking? Please point it out.

Where in the indictment did it mention hacking? Which page? I just read it and didn’t see it.

Trump’s statement was referring to the email hack – indictment doesn’t mention the email hack, its just about internet trolls – but you knew that. So your tweet is more fake news.

What the Mueller indictment does not seem to address: hacking into the DNC, hacking into Podesta’s inbox, leaking stolen emails to hostile websites. That was always the most significant actual crime we know Russians committed, so we are far from having all the answers.
