Mueller indicts 12 Russians for hacking into Democrats
News | 13.07.2018
Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russians on Friday, and accused them of hacking into the Democratic National Committee to sabotage the 2016 presidential election.
The indictments, announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, come just days before a scheduled Monday summit in Helsinki between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
They are the latest charges in a probe that has already netted guilty pleas from three former Donald Trump campaign aides while the president himself remains under investigation by Mueller for potential obstruction of justice.
