Russian Agents Used Illinois Computer To Hack Dems In 2016, Indictment Alleges

Trump Putin may agree to resume stalled arms control talks

Ahead of Trump's meeting with Putin, Mueller indicts 12 Russians for hacking DNC emails - Philly

After the indictments were announced, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer called on Trump to cancel his meeting with Putin until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections.

Trump advisor Roger Stone, Don Jr., and others were in contact with leak channels WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, which the indictment said were used by Russian spies to disseminate the documents.

"It's on", spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

Two are charged with a conspiracy to commit computer crimes and stand accused of hacking the DNC, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

But Deputy US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has insisted that "the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the (US) election".

Rosenstein said there is no allegation that United States citizens were involved in the alleged crimes described in the indictment.

The charges come as Mueller continues to investigate potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

It was unclear whether the indictment might factor into Mr. Trump's meeting with Mr. Putin on Monday.

Lawmakers also urged Trump to act on the advice of other federal agencies, saying "you must rely on the expertise and the experts of the State Department Defense Department, CIA and other USA government agencies - not wing it on your own". The signers sit on the Senate Armed Services, Appropriations, Banking, Foreign Relations, Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

US intelligence agencies have said the interference was aimed at helping the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and harming the election bid of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. Both investigations unfolded during the presidential election, causing the FBI - which prides itself on independence - to become entangled in presidential politics in ways that are continuing to shake out.

Trump has long insisted that Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the election is a "witch hunt", despite USA intelligence findings in 2017 that some level of interference occurred.

In Philadelphia today, the main topic at the annual meeting of secretaries of state and election officials is cyber security for the upcoming midterm elections. Mr. Trump complained about the Russian Federation investigation hours before the indictment, saying the "stupidity" was making it "very hard to do something with Russian Federation". Look, if we can get along with Russian Federation that's a good thing.

He said that was counterproductive to efforts to pressure Russian Federation.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the US election.

The label featured a picture of the U.S. leader, a man holding a sign saying "free Melania" and used the tagline "President of Divided States of America". He also said there's no allegation in the indictment that any American was involved in the operation.

"I am confident that President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin will put America in a better place".

Rosenstein called for unity in the face of Russian meddling.

"When we confront foreign interference in American elections, it is important for us to avoid thinking politically as Republicans or Democrats and instead to think patriotically as Americans".

US intelligence agencies have said the meddling was aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming the election bid of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The indictment says the Russian operatives told the person it would be a "great pleasure" to help them and later asked their opinion about a stolen DCCC document posted online.

"[We have] not seen anything, certainly, to the degree of 2016 in terms of specific hacking of election systems", Krebs said.

Stolen emails, many politically damaging for Clinton, appeared on WikiLeaks in the campaign's final stretch.

Nielsen said the intelligence community has also observed "persistent Russian efforts using social media, sympathetic spokespeople, and other fronts to sow discord and divisiveness amongst the American people - though not necessarily focused on specific politicians or political campaigns". On Feb. 16, his prosecutors charged 13 Russians and three Russian entities they said were part of a broader effort to sow discord among USA voters through social media - which they used to impersonate Americans, coordinate with unwitting US activists and even plan rallies.
