Kremlin denied USA election meddling just before indictments

The Russians involved belong to the military service GRU and are allegedly responsible for hacking the Democratic National Committee staffers emails, including those of chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Mrs. Clinton's campaign chair, John Podesta, and voting information on over 500,000 Americans.

A federal grand jury on Friday charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016 as part of Moscow's meddling in the presidential election to help Republican Donald Trump.

The indictment alleges the unnamed person had been in touch with senior members of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and exchanged Twitter direct messages with Guccifer 2.0, an online pseudonym of Russian operatives.

Look, (Deputy Attorney General Rod) Rosenstein said in his comments that they knew of no crime by USA citizens. They also hacked into computers of a company that supplied software used to verify voter registration information.

USA indictments against a dozen Russian intelligence officers on Friday provided detailed technical evidence to back up allegations of Russian hacking and leaking of information to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question, and hopefully we´ll have a good relationship with Russian Federation", he told a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. It contains no allegations that U.S. citizens committed a crime, he said. One notable but often forgotten example is that Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., called the claims of Russian Federation hacking the DNC "phony" and "lies" on July 11, 2016.




We've known for quite some time that foreign governments, including the Russians, have been involved in trying to infiltrate and influence elections, so these indictments don't bring anything new to light from that perspective.

Rosenstein said the timing of the indictments were: "a function of the collection of the facts, the evidence, and the law and a determination that it was sufficient to present the indictment at this time". Throughout at least March and April there were repeated efforts to break into about 120 Democratic National Committee, Clinton and left-leaning activists' accounts across the country. The indictment presented some of the most detailed evidence yet of Russia's attempt to meddle in the United States' electoral process. "I do think our intelligence agencies had been politicized". But with Mueller still investigating, it's not known whether further indictments are taking shape or will.

The indictment comes just days before President Trump is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland.

The indictment says the Russians used "spearphishing" - a technique used to steal passwords or otherwise gain access to computers - throughout the summer of 2016 to hack individuals associated with the Clinton campaign.

Stone has said that he fully expects to be indicted by Mueller, as Vox reported.

Revealing so much "says just how serious this is, and how important it is to acknowledge that Russian Federation hacked the USA to aid Trump and hurt Clinton", Weaver said.
