If Mueller Report Was 'Tip Of The Iceberg,' What More Is Lurking Unseen?

"If the political interference documented in special counsel Robert Mueller's report was just the 'tip of the iceberg,' what else is lurking out of sight beneath the surface?"

"That was the question posed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a speech in New York City, one in which he defended his handling of the Russia investigation and suggested there could be much more to it beyond that contained in Mueller's report."

"'The bottom line is, there was overwhelming evidence that Russian operatives hacked American computers and defrauded American citizens, and that is only the tip of the iceberg of a comprehensive Russian strategy to influence elections, promote social discord and undermine America, just like they do in many other countries,' Rosenstein said on Thursday."

"Mueller's focus was on the two best-known aspects of Russia's "active measures": the theft and release of material embarrassing to political targets and the use of social media platforms to crank up agitation among an already divided populace."

"Some of the Russian schemes that Mueller left out of his report also are known."

"On Friday, for example, a federal judge sentenced a woman to 18 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to serving as an unregistered Russian agent from around 2015 until her arrest last summer."
