A grand jury indictment announced in Washington Friday morning has charged a dozen Russians, alleged officers in the GRU, the main Russian military intelligence agency, with hacking and leaking emails from senior Democratic Party officials and the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
The charges, brought by special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his probe into Russian “meddling” in the US election and possible complicity of the Trump campaign, were presented at a Justice Department press conference by Rod Rosenstein. The deputy US attorney general declared, “The Internet allows foreign adversaries to attack America in new and unexpected ways.”
Indictments announced, but no verifying proof. The timing smacks of political intent with the Putin-Trump meeting coming up.
