I almost spit out my coffee

I read this news and almost spit out my coffee:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicts a dozen Russian intelligence officers for hacking the Democratic Party and attempting to influence the 2016 election, while Donald Trump praises Vladimir Putin and attacks our own intelligence community (see the note below).

Meanwhile, Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, says he wants to "put the final nail" in precedent allowing for independent counsels.

The concrete steps we must take right now are clear.

Congress must protect the Mueller Investigation. The American people deserve to know the truth.

And the Senate must reject Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump should not be rewarded with another appointment given their blatant theft of a Supreme Court nomination from former President Barack Obama.
