US DoJ Charges 12 Russian Officials With Cryptocurrency-Funded Elections ‘Interference’

He called on the special counsel to "end this pursuit of the president and say President Trump is completely innocent".

Mueller's indictment, unveiled days before President Donald Trump is set to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, asserts that the Russian suspects engaged in a far-reaching hacking scheme that targeted the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

A self-described "dirty trickster" in American politics, Stone has taken credit for persuading President Trump to get into politics.

"A spokesman for the Trump campaign later insisted that 'Mr".

Trump told the Washington Post he made a decision to terminate Stone, "because he no longer serves a useful function for my campaign".

However, details of a conversation between Guccifer 2.0 and the unnamed person mirrors messages released publicly by Stone, a conservative political operative with ties to Donald Trump dating back decades. Soon after this, compromised classified information was posted on WikiLeaks. Stone has argued in the past that the Russian government was not behind the persona. "Under what Roger told me, I don't see how he's part of a grand conspiracy there". "I never spoke to him about Guccifer", he said.

In recent months, Mueller's investigators have extensively questioned longtime Stone associates such as Sam Nunberg and Michael Caputo, who both served as Trump advisers. Grand jury indictments have laid out detailed allegations of how Russian Federation sought to manipulate Americans through social media, break into state voting systems and hack the email accounts of Democratic committees and party leaders. Caputo met with Mueller's team in a closed-door session in May. By then, Guccifer 2.0 had begun to release some of the emails online to a site called DC Leaks and through WikiLeaks, according to the indictment.

Caputo said in the interview that he does not believe there is any proof of collusion.

The Department of Justice has indicted 12 Russian intelligence agents for "conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential elections", Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein announced on Friday.

"Assange has denied receiving the trove of hacked information from the Russians".

Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) issued a formal charge sheet against twelve Russian nationals with committing federal crimes.

Rosenstein said he briefed Trump this week about the indictment.

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'.

Several of the hacked emails revealed that DNC officials, including Wasserman-Schultz, grew increasingly frustrated with the Sander's candidacy. She says local election officials should reach out for help if they need it.

All 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian federation intelligence agency, who were acting in "their official capacities".

"No, I'm sorry, I think it is still unproven", Stone told Cuomo.

"Earlier today before I had a chance to read this extensive document, I wasn't sure", Stone said on CNN.
