12 Russians indicted over hacking into Democrats’ computers

Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 Russian military intelligence agents on Friday with hacking into the computers of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 election.

The federal grand-jury indictment comes just ahead of President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday. Russia has been accused in past Mueller indictments of seeking Trump’s election, and Trump said on Friday that he would bring up the issue of “meddling” with the Russian president.

The Mueller indictment states that officers of the GRU — Russian military intelligence — gained unauthorized access into the computers, stole documents, and tried to interfere with the U.S.
