Today a grand jury in the District of Columbia charged 12 Russian officers (listing them all by name) for hacking with the intent to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections, announced Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The news comes just before President Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland. He still denies Russian involvement and says he believes Putin that Russia didn’t interfere.
The probe, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, shows that the 12 Russians are members of Russian military intelligence.
Assistant Attorney General Rosenstein gave a breaking press conference with detailed information, listing exactly what these Russian intelligence officers did to try and help elect President Trump to the White House.
The press conference was scheduled at the exact same time Trump was meeting with the Queen in England for tea.
