USA indicts 12 Russians for hacking DNC emails during the 2016 election

Rosenstein said at the time that the Russians had waged "information warfare" against the U.S. during the 2016 campaign, with the aim of "spreading distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general".

The indictment says the named Russian intelligence officers began their cyber-attacks in March 2016 to hack the email accounts of volunteers and employees of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

The indictment does not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking efforts or that any American was knowingly in contact with Russian intelligence officers.

In another related allegation, the indictment claims Russian officers hacked a state election board's website and stole the information of roughly 500,000 voters.

He also said the Russian defendants infiltrated computers at US state boards of election and secretaries of state, plus software suppliers whose products help election officials verify voter registration data.

"He needs to know what evidence there is of foreign election interference", said Rosenstein.

Donald Trump: May presses case for USA trade deal at dinner
President Donald Trump has arrived in the U.K.to begin his first visit to the country as America's commander-in-chief. Trump also expressed disappointment with May's handling of Britain's withdrawal from the EU.

The leaks threw the Democratic party into turmoil and prompted the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC chairwoman, on the eve of the convention to nominate Clinton as its presidential nominee last July.

In the indictment, which became the latest development in the special counsel investigation headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, described the details of the transaction.

Prior to Friday's announcement, Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential campaign has led to indictments or guilty pleas for at least 20 individuals and three companies.

To date, Mueller's probe has netted five guilty pleas, including from Trump's ex-national security adviser, Michael Flynn, along with almost 32 indictments, including the president's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

"The partisan warfare fueled by modern technology does not fairly reflect the grace and dignity of the American people", he continued.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
