  • Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Announces Indictment Of 12 Russian Military Officers For DNC Hacking

Twelve indictments were filed by the office of U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller, who was brought on a year ago to investigate Russian interference with the 2016 United States presidential election.

Authorities in the United States have indicted 12 Russian military intelligence officers for alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, won by Republican Donald Trump.

A dozen Russians have been criminally charged with hacking and leaking the emails of senior Democrats during the 2016 presidential election campaign, it was announced on Friday.

These charges, however, come just days before Trump is expected to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland.

Rosenstein asked Americans to focus not only who was hurt by or benefited politically from the Russian attacks but to unite against foreign influence in the American democratic process. "On or about July 22, 2016, Organization 1 released over 20,000 emails and other documents stolen from the DNC network by the [Russians]".

"The goal of the conspiracy was to have an impact on the election", Rosenstein said. The investigation also didn't find any evidence votes were changed.

The Russians are accused of breaking into the computer networks of several organizations of the Democratic Party to steal emails.

Trump has frequently dismissed the Russian Federation probe as a "witch hunt" and expressed his anger that Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation.

The indictment states the conspirators searched a campaign committee computer specifically for terms including "Hillary", "Cruz", "Trump" and "Benghazi Investigations".

President Donald Trump's highly anticipated meeting with Queen Elizabeth II was spoiled on Friday as news broke that 12 Russian officials had been indicted for allegedly hacking into the Democratic National Committee.

This is all the U.S. Justice Department said in the announcement of the surprise press conference: "Today at 11:45AM ET: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will hold a press conference for a law enforcement announcement". His work had already led to charges against 20 people on crimes ranging from money laundering to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The deputy attorney general added that the defendants worked for two units of the Russian intelligence service, the GRU. The GRU also created other ways to pass the material it stole into the public, including a website called DCLeaks and a fake persona called "Guccifer 2.0".

Among the new details: the conspirators allegedly first tried to compromise email accounts used by Clinton's personal office on July 27, 2016, the same day that Trump appeared to urge Russian Federation to go after her emails at a campaign press conference in Florida. The affected groups include the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

The defendants are named in the indictment as Viktor Netyksho, Boris Antonov, Dmitry Badin, Ivan Yermakov, Aleksey Lukashev, Sergey Morgachev, Nikolay Kozachek, Pavel Yershov, Artem Malyshev, Aleksandr Osadchuk and Aleksey Potemkin.
