The case that 19 people were charged??


Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
WASHINGTON — James Comey’s scathing new account of his dealings with President Trump lands at a pivotal time in the Russia investigation that Comey once led as FBI director.

Trump’s Russia legal team appears in disarray and last week’s disclosure of a separate federal investigation into the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen so surprised the White House that negotiations with Russia special counsel Robert Mueller for an possible interview with Trump have been effectively placed on hold.

Yet nearly a year after Comey’s dismissal and the appointment of Mueller, who was Comey’s predecessor at the FBI, the Russia investigation has advanced on multiple fronts.

Nineteen people are known to be charged so far. They include 13 Russians, associated with three businesses including an Internet company tied to the Kremlin.

The case represents the most detailed account so far of the effort to undermine the 2016 presidential election, and the actions aimed at boosting the candidacy of then-candidate Trump.
