Russians charged in DNC hacking case

Mueller indicts 12 Russian intelligence officers over 2016 election interference

Mueller indicts 12 Russian intelligence officers over 2016 election interference

If Trump does not force Putin to account for this criminal cyber act of war against the sanctity of our democracy, against our institutions that run elections and against individual American voters, the president's unfitness for office, his incapability to keep America safe and his inability to lead effectively will be crystal clear to the world.

The wreckage of what Robert Mueller's team says were Russian strikes on the USA can be measured in damaged reputations and disrupted politics. The indictment does not specify which state had been hacked.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments at the Justice Department, just days before President Trump is to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a one-on-one summit. He said there's no allegation in the indictment as to whether they actually did affect it, labeling that speculative.

There is no allegation in the indictment that any American participated knowingly in the GRU cyberattacks, Rosenstein said. "This is consistent with what we have been saying all along", said White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters.

The indictment alleges they conspired "with persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury".

In August 2016, the indictment says, "the Conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, sent a reporter stolen documents pertaining to the Black Lives Matter movement, The reporter responded by discussing when to release the documents and offering to write an article about their release".

In an effort to hide their connections to Russian Federation, the defendants used a network of computers around the world, and they paid for it using cryptocurrency.

Mueller's probe, which began in May of 2017 to determine if any of Trump's campaign associates worked with Russia to interfere with the election, has brought 79 charges against 20 people and three companies; 14 of those charged are Russians.

Paris Saint-Germain to offer Neymar pay rise?
Neymar has become the World Cup's pantomime villain, but one person who has come to his defence is Brazil legend Ronaldo. It comes after Real denied earlier this month they had agreed a deal to sign PSG and France forward Kylian Mbappe.

The Justice Department charged 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday with a litany of alleged offenses related to Russia's hacking of the Democratic National Committee's emails, state election systems and other targets in 2016.

The computer crimes the Russians face also accuse them of installing malware on Democratic campaign computers. "We know that the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the election", he told BBC.

Assistant Attorney General John Demers is here with me today because we intend to transition responsibility for this indictment to the Justice Department's National Security Division while we await the apprehension of the defendants.

Because Mueller has maintained public silence on his investigation, Rosenstein has made the few public pronouncements on the probe outside of legal documents and courtroom proceedings.

Though the Democratic organizations realized they were hacked by May 2016 and attempted to flush out the hackers, the Russians continued to watch the computers through their hacks until a month before the election, according to the indictment.

Today's latest, and nearly certainly not last, indictments in the Russia scandal concern 12 Russian intelligence figures. "This is not a witch hunt and it is certainly not a joke, as Donald Trump has desperately and incorrectly argued in the past", Perez said.

The Russian hackers were allegedly working for two units of the GRU. The following month, he hacked into the computers of a USA vendor that supplied software used to verify voter registration information.
