Russians indicted over USA election hack

Russians indicted over USA election hack

Trump and several Republicans have criticized that decision, as well as Rosenstein's appointment of Mueller as special counsel after the president fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey less than halfway into his 10-year term.

All 12 defendants are Russian military intelligence operatives who, according to Rosenstein, created and used the "DCLeaks" and "Guccifer 2.0" identities to leak the information they stole from the DNC while implying they were Americans.

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to investigate whether anyone in the United States conspired with the Russian attack on the election.

The announcement came only three days before President Donald Trump is to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

She resisted and pulled away, but Till approached her and got her by the waist, she said. "We don't know anything". Two men who confessed to killing Emmett, only after they had been acquitted by an all-white jury in MS , are dead.

An embargo on the indictment was lifted prior to Rosenstein's announcement when a reporter in the main Department of Justice briefing room broke the information by reading a press release over a hot mic. The president also has said the interference took place and vowed that if it returned in the 2018 midterm election - as USA intelligence officials have warned it may - he would "counteract it very strongly".

'Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious, and there will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide, and conquer us'. That includes four former Trump campaign and White House aides and 13 Russians accused of participating in a hidden but powerful social media campaign to sway American public opinion in the 2016 election. But that indictment had not directly tied the meddling effort to Russia's government. He said that Mueller's investigation continues.

With the charges, Mueller's prosecutors have marked out another Internet pathway they say Russian Federation used to influence the US election.

"The stakes for the upcoming Trump-Putin meeting could not be higher", Pelosi said. "Anything you do, it's always going to be, 'Oh, Russia, he loves Russia'".
