Russian officers indicted for allegedly hacking Clinton campaign, DNC emails

A federal grand jury has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic Party during the 2016 election, the Justice Department announced Friday.

“The internet allows foreign adversaries to attack America in new and unexpected ways,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said during a press conference.

All 12 defendants are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency.

… But during his press conference, Rosenstein said, “there is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime.”
