Roger Stone says he's "probably" the unnamed person in hacking indictment

Трамп назвал причины ухудшения отношений России и США

The legal action is part of the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller. "He did not believe that the Russians actually hacked the emails from the DNC or Podesta", Nunberg said. The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues.

The indictment points to a hacking attempt that same day, saying that "after hours" the Russians attempted to 'spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton's personal office'. The Kremlin denies it interfered.

Twelve Russian intelligence agents are accused of hacking and meddling in a case that focuses on stealing and releasing private information ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

GRU is the Russian military intelligence agency.

U.S. prosecutors accuse the Russian intelligence officials of creating a fictitious, public-facing persona, dubbed "Guccifer 2.0", to serve as a conduit for the stolen DNC data and others prior to the 2016 election. Those documents were then publicized by two online channels, a site called DCLeaks and a persona known as Guccifer 2.0.

Stone was an adviser to Trump during the campaign and has clearly been investigated by Mueller's team and the grand jury, after several of his business associates received requests for documents or to testify before the grand jury.

Trump greeted with protests during first United Kingdom visit
The trio will be having tea at Windsor Castle, a meeting that Buckingham Palace described in a press release as a "working visit". But the red carpet treatment is likely to be overshadowed by massive protests planned by Britons opposed to Trump's presence.

The indictments are part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections with the eventual aim of trying to boost Trump's campaign. "There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result, '" deputy White House press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement Friday. "Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious and there will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide and conquer us".

The special counsel has also obtained guilty pleas from Trump campaign aides such as Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos and Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chair, in now in jail awaiting trial. If that link is established, it would shatter the Kremlin denials of the Russian state's involvement in the US elections given that the GRU is part of the state machine.

US President Donald Trump (R) and Russia's President Vladimir Putin talk as they make their way to take the "family photo" during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' summit in the central Vietnamese city of Danang on November 11, 2017.

It was unclear whether the indictment might factor into Trump's meeting with Putin on Monday. Trump said Friday before the indictment was released that he planned to ask Putin about Russia's election interference.

Former FBI director James Comey said during congressional testimony past year he had "no doubt" the Russian government was behind the DNC hack. "And it's benign. So I don't know that it refers to me". Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation.
