Many Americans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the indictment of Manafort and Gates. For the most part, partisanship is determining various opinions.
Democrats and progressives view the indictment as proof of allegations that Russia meddled in last year’s election. Manafort’s service as the President’s campaign manager only further promotes this view in their eyes.
However, conservatives have a different outlook. To them, Manafort’s indictment gives no credence to any Russia collusion theories. Factually speaking, the charges are unrelated to last year’s campaign. Moreover, right wingers feel the media will use Manafort’s indictment as a tool to smear President Trump.
