US special counsel Robert Mueller has filed charges against the hackers behind cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee. US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the announcement during a Justice Department press conference on Friday morning. The announcements were a part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion with the 2016 presidential election.

Well I guess we have good reason to install an undercover spy in the DNC's next presidential election to protect them.
HA! You win the day, my friend.
US Justice Department indicts 12 Russians for hacking Democratic Party emails, three days before President Trump meets President Putin
Trump told reporters in London Friday that he will “absolutely firmly” ask Putin about the finding by U.S. intelligence agencies that he authorized the campaign of interference. But he added, “I don’t think you’ll have any ‘Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me” confession.

This is a good thing, isn't it? These people tried to hack the DNC and interfere in the elections. Mueller is draining the swamp.

1. The Russians hacked the DNC server to obtain documentation to influence the 2016 election.
No shocker here, goes on all the time between various countries trying to influence another countries election. In this arena, America has no right to start throwing stones.
2. It appears to be proof that the released documentation was actual documentation from the DNC server and other sources. That means the actual released documents came straight from the DNC server, and were not fake or created.
That's about all I got out of that.
Rosenstein, who said he had briefed President Donald Trump on the indictment, said there was no allegation that the hacking altered any vote count or that any Americans were knowingly in communication with any of the Russian officers.

Isn't it great that you hate law and order and your orange god is going to go down as the most corrupt criminal in American political history. Try to focus. Rosenstein said much without naming names. Stone, Trump Jr, followed by the idiot in chief will ALL BE CHARGED. What will you say then? But but Hillary's emails.... Waaaahhhhhhh
Rosenstein added that the indictment does not allege involvement by any U.S. persons. Nor does it allege that the GRU operatives altered vote counts or otherwise affected the numerical results of the presidential race.
