Rosenstein Indicts 12 RUSSIAN AGENTS for 'Hacking' 2016 Election

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

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced new indictments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"On or about September 9, 2016, the Conspirators, again posing as Guccifer 2.0, referred to a stolen DCCC document posted online and asked the person, "what do u think of the info on the turnout model for the democrats entire presidential campaign.' The person responded, '[p] retty standard". No Americans are involved.

Wondering whether Trump will have the courage to challenge Putin & say Putin is full of it when he denies that his government had any role in the hacks during the 2016 campaign. Comey said at the time there was "no doubt" the Russian Government meddled in the 2016 USA election.

"Eleven of the defendants are charged with conspiring to hack into computers, steal documents, and release documents in an effort to interfere with the election", Rosenstein said.

While President Donald Trump hasn't been a supporter of this probe previously calling it a witch hunt, Rosenstein said that he has been briefed about this indictment earlier this week and "is fully aware of today's actions by the department". The spokesperson added that "VR Systems engaged the services of one of the top cyber security companies in the world and they conducted a full assessment of our systems and determined that our system was not breached as a result of this attempt".

U.S. prosecutors accuse the Russian intelligence officials of creating a fictitious, public-facing persona, dubbed "Guccifer 2.0", to serve as a conduit for the stolen DNC data and others prior to the 2016 election.

It was the first round of new worldwide indictments since February, when 13 Russians and three Russian companies were charged with campaign interference and coordinating with low-level Trump campaign activists.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water. In a condolence message to Dr Harris on its Facebook page, the Thai navy unit said, "We wish you the best for this tough time".

Five people have pleaded guilty, including former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn, who was sacked as national security adviser after he admitted lying about his contacts with Russians on the campaign trail. GRU members have been charged for being behind a "sustained effort" to hack into the DNC network and the presidential campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Mr Trump complained anew that the special counsel's investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russian Federation.

The indictment also said a "candidate for US Congress" contacted Guccifer 2.0 to obtain the files - though the candidate was not named, nor is it known if the candidate won.

"Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "Time for Mueller to end this pursuit of the President and say President Trump is completely innocent".

Trump said he did not know who was orchestrating the election hacking but suggested it was "probably China", adding that if it was hypothetically Russian Federation intelligence, it would show their lack of reverence for the United States.

Trump said at a news conference Friday near London with British Prime Minister Theresa May that he wasn't going into the meeting with Putin with "high expectations". Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation. "But I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".
