  • Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted twelve Russian intelligence officials of the GRU, Russia’s main intelligence directorate, for the hacking of the computer systems of organizers of the Democratic Party’s efforts in the 2016 election.
  • The indictment (https://www.justice.gov/file/1080281/download) describes in detail how the conspirators, whose object was to “hack into the computers of U.S. persons and entities involved in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, steal documents from those computers, and stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” used, among other means, spear phishing hacking techniques in which they masqueraded as Google sending account security alerts that would direct DNC officials to a link of a website that was secretly monitored by the GRU. The hackers also stole private information about half a million US voters from an online state election board website. The indictment alleges that the hackers were also responsible for the leak of John Podesta and other officials ’ emails which were then distributed by Wikileaks on the internet.
  • The charges come as President Donald Trump prepares for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and after Trump has been unusually supportive of Putin and has called the Russia probe a “witch hunt.”
