  • Mueller indicts 12 Russian intelligence officers over 2016 election interference

In announcing the indictment Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein said that's not for the Justice Department figure out.

The Special Counsel's Office declined to comment Friday as to why the organization that published the documents, the U.S. Congressional candidate who asked for stolen documents and the person who communicated with the conspirators and with the Trump campaign were not charged in the indictment.

The indictment alleges that "in or around August 2016, [Russian military officer] KOVALEV and his co-conspirators hacked into the computers of a US vendor ("Vendor 1") that supplied software used to verify voter registration information for the 2016 USA elections".

Rosenstein said he had briefed Trump about the indictment before Friday's announcement.

The announcement comes just days before President Trump's planned meeting with his Russian counterpart, President Putin, scheduled for Monday, July 16. However, there is no allegation against any United States citizen.

"There's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result."

The Russians named in the indictment discussed how and when to release material they'd accumulated in order to make the biggest political splash inside the United States, Rosenstein said.

"The Russian state has never interfered and has no intention of interfering in the U.S. elections", Mr Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said. That latter charge stems from the attempts to break into state elections officials' systems.

After indictment of Russian spies, are Mueller and Rosenstein immune from dismissal?

Mr Rosenstein said they worked for two units: one was involved in actively stealing information while the other was responsible for disseminating this stolen information.

On Friday, Stone's lawyer, Grant Smith, told The Post that his client had no contact with the Russians: "I$3 t is clear from the indictment issued today that [Stone] was not in any way involved with any of the alleged hacking of the 2016 election". And these indictments suggest that after Trump's order/plea/joke, Russians did step up their efforts to hack or deliver what turned out to be John Podesta's emails.

The charges are part of the ongoing special counsel probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

'The Internet allows foreign adversaries to attack America in new and unexpected ways, ' Rosenstein said.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump taunted Clinton and the Federal Bureau of Investigation - which had been investigating her use of a private email server - by publicly calling on Russian Federation to locate her personal emails.

The Russia investigation has now led to charges against 32 people, including previous charges against 14 Russian nationals for their work on spreading Russian-based propaganda.

The Russian operatives "created fictitious online personas", including "DCLeaks" and "Guccifer 2.0", Rosenstein said, adding that the group falsely claimed DCLeaks was started by a group of American hackers and that Guccifer 2.0 was "a lone Romanian hacker". Russian Federation has also denied any connection to the breach.

Former Trump campaign official and Manafort deputy Rick Gates, former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and former Trump White House national security adviser Michael Flynn have all entered guilty pleas in connection with the investigation.
