Russian intelligence officers indicted for hacking 2016 U.S. election

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

"It is regrettable that spreading false information has become the norm in Washington, and [the] indictments are based on openly political motives", the ministry said on Friday, responding to the announcement by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was in Moscow on Saturday to meet with Vladimir Putin, just days after the Russian leader hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Rosenstein said he had briefed President Trump on the indictment earlier this week, adding that although Americans corresponded with the indicted Russians, in this case no Americans knowingly conspired with Russian intelligence officers.

McCain said the charges were the "result of the hard work of America's law enforcement and intelligence officials who dedicate their lives to bringing to justice those who wish to do us harm".

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein insisted that "the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the election". "There is no allegation in the indictment that the Americans knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers", Rosenstein said.

Maurizio Sarri assured Chelsea he does not hold any homophobic or sexist views ahead of his appointment as new head coach. Jorginho has signed a five-year contract and will wear the no.5 shirt.

Evidence of this includes the mention of state election boards and other non-federal institutions in the document, and its scope, which in essence is a legal attempt to hold the Russian state accountable for wide-ranging intelligence activities.

In what is possibly an astonishing coincidence, but probably not, that very night, according to the new indictments from the Department of Justice, Russian hackers "attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton's personal office".

In a major development to the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential elections, the U.S. justice department has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for "hacking" the Democratic National Committee, BBC reported.

The GRU officers in Friday's indictment used bitcoin, the famous, high-value, decentralized electronic currency, to pay for the computer network infrastructure they used in their cyberattack. Both were created and controlled by the Russian GRU, Rosenstein said. Not a single Russian person indicted by Mueller has shown up in a U.S. court and they will likely continue to avoid global travel so they won't be apprehended.

In addition to contact with WikiLeaks, several people reached out to Guccifer 2.0 in August 2016 soliciting access to the stolen documents, the indictment says.

Trump , meanwhile, has been criticized for being reluctant to speak publicly about Russian interference into the campaign. He also observed that the so-called "witch hunt" doesn't look like the baseless fantasy Trump portrays it to be.

The indictment does not name the candidate or allude to whether they won their election. "But I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".

The special counsel's office has again given the public another glimpse of the godlike vision the USA intelligence community can exercise over the world's Internet traffic.

"The Russian government attacked our democracy in 2016, and the DNC was a primary target of that attack", he wrote.

Graham suggested that Trump "reject [any] denial" of election meddling from Putin and tell him that if he "desires a good relationship, you've got to stop meddling in our elections". No Americans are involved. They stole passwords, tracked keystrokes, took screenshots and watched banking information, the indictment said.
