After CNN reported that special counsel Robert Mueller and a grand jury are filing charges against individuals and seeking to obtain arrest warrants, the internet went nuts.
Immediately, commentators brought up the attempted distraction from the White House for the last several days. Others mocked Fox News host Sean Hannity, who was demanding to know when Hillary Clinton would be indicted. The rest are just glad the beginning of the end has begun.
You can read the best below:
CNN: Mueller has filed charges
MSNBC: Mueller has filed charges.
Literally everyone: Mueller filed charges
Fox: Mueller should resign.

Buckle up. We can expect Trump’s efforts to confuse and divide Americans against each other to shift into overdrive. Don’t fall for it.

Hahaha! Have fun on Monday! Mueller is coming!

Mueller wouldn’t have filed charges today if his case wasn’t airtight & remember a grand jury approved it. No “fake news.” All very real.

“Republicans barfing up crazy shit about Hillary” is officially the best early-warning system for actual news about Mueller’s investigation.

I’m imagining Barack Obama watching the Mueller news on TV in the tan suit while putting Grey Poupon on a hot dog AND he can’t stop laughing

There has been a campaign out of the WH to discredit the Mueller investigation, but now the special counsel may be turning up the heat. https://t.co/UkhFERiVm7

I thought I’d share my betting odds on the Mueller indictment(s)

Reminder: Mueller last known to be a registered GOP, former US Atty, and was the longest serving FBI Director since J.Edgar Hoover. #Russia

Considering Mueller just issued the first indictment , is it any wonder you’re babbling on about Hillary? pic.twitter.com/P1MRPusxFq

10/ So this suggests to me that he most likely is indicting someone early to get him/her to flip. The obvious candidate is Paul Manafort.
