12 More Indictments

12 Russians indicted in Mueller investigation


Washington (CNN)The Justice Department announced indictments against 12 Russian nationals as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, accusing them of engaging in a "sustained effort" to hack Democrats' emails and computer networks.

All 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian federation intelligence agency within the main intelligence directorate of the Russian military, who were acting in "their official capacities."
The revelations provide more detail on the sophisticated assault on the US election in 2016, including the release of emails designed to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The indictment was announced at almost exactly the moment that President Donald Trump rolled into the quadrangle of Windsor Castle to meet the awaiting Queen Elizabeth II in the symbolic highpoint of his visit to Britain.
Trump is due to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin -- who has denied election meddling -- in Helsinki on Monday for a summit that includes a one-on-one meeting with only interpreters present.

The Justice Department says the hacking targeted Clinton's campaign, Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, with the intention to "release that information on the internet under the names DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 and through another entity."
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the indictment does not name any American citizen, but told reporters that defendants "corresponded with several Americans during the course of the conspiracy through the internet."

You forgot to mention all the Americans working in their boiler room who had no clue. Oh, this too.
"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime," Rosenstein said at a news conference. "There is no allegation that the conspiracy altered the vote count or changed any election result."

When do you expect to see the GRU agents in US court testifying that they did it for Trump etc?

Giuliani, being not very bright but a great cheerleader immediately tweeted words to the effect "See, Dot Don is innocent. This proves it."

A joke lawyer for a not funny joke president.

Hey Russia meddled! They have for years, and once again how do you square the fact that Obama actually spent tax payer money to try and over throw BIBI, and your poutrage that another country may have I have yet to see one Iota of evidence against Trump so sleep well tonight knowing we have an actual President in charge.

I think Mueller is about out of steam. Foreign national indictments, especially this amount seem to indicate the rope has almost ran out imo. This far into this and not a single indictment involving electioneering or collusion from a US citizen. I think its about ran its course imo.
