Mueller indicts 12 Russian military officers for election hacking, says DCLeaks & Guccifer 2.0 were Russia intel

As Mister Trump and his wife greeted the Queen of England, a reporter on a hot mic broke the embargo that the U.S. is indicting 12 Russian military officers with attacks on the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections, and that Guccifer 2.0 and DC LEAKS were Russian intelligence missions.

"Both were created and controlled by Russia's GRU," said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, announcing the indictments just after noon in Washington on Friday.

Robert Mueller, you sure know how to troll.

Can we stop calling this "meddling" now? It was internet-based warfare.

The U.S. Department of Justice is indicting 12 Russian military intelligence officers, members of Vladimir Putin's government, on charges they hacked Democratic National Committee servers in the run-up to the 2016 elections.

The news comes just two days before Trump is to sit alone with Vladimir Putin at the weirdest summit in American presidential history, on Monday.

Vladimir Putin is a former KGB officer.

Here is the indictment.
