Mueller probe indicts 12 Russians for hacking Democrats in 2016

Outrage after Chicago police fatally shoot man

At a news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday, the president said he will bring up the Russian cyber-attacks but dismissed the possibility Putin will accept responsibility. On Friday the administration noted that no Trump officials were implicated, with Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani hailing the indictments as "good news for all Americans".

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that the accounts were hacked as part of a wide-ranging operation ordered by Putin to damage Clinton's bid for the presidency and assist Trump's campaign.

US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin are scheduled to meet for talks in the Finnish capital, Helsinki.

Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

Deputy White House press secretary Lindsay Walters said there is no evidence tying the Trump campaign to hacking attempts.

At a joint press conference Friday with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump told reporters he would "absolutely" bring up the issue of Russian Federation interference in the election during his meeting with Putin.

"Russia, if you're listening", Trump said, "I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing".

"Start treating Putin like you do with the Democrats - tough, strong, 'we're not going to take your nonsense", he said.

In the most high-profile case related to Mueller's investigation, Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was indicted in October on a host of charges, including conspiracy, money laundering and making false statements to the FBI.

Trump also may be getting plaudits for doing something the Kremlin has been striving for years: driving cracks between the powerful western alliance that has confronted Russian Federation.

"Russia is a foe in certain respects".

According to the indictment, the Russian operatives also provided direct assistance to a candidate for the US Congress, who in August 2016 requested and received from "Guccifer 2.0" documents stolen from the DCCC about their opponent.

Putin and Trump first met during the G20 summit in Germany's Hamburg in July last year and again met for the second time in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in November last year.
