Mueller Investigation Indicts 12 Russian Officers

New  charges have been filed  by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team in the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

Twelve Russian intelligence officers have been indicted for hacking into Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign emails and releasing information with the intent of influencing the presidential campaign.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the announcement at a press conference Friday.  The indictment says the Russians also aimed to hack into computers of organizations involved in running elections, including state officials and companies who supply election software.  Rosenstein says the Russian operatives created online personas — DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 — and leaked the information they found either directly or through other organizations.  The indictment comes as President Donald Trump prepares to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

That meeting is scheduled to  happen on Monday .

Trump was briefed on the indictments earlier this week, and has said he'll bring up the issue of election meddling with Putin during the summit.
