Mueller probe indicts 12 Russians for hacking Democrats in 2016
A dozen Russian intelligence officers have been charged with conspiring to hack Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to a new indictment in the probe led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
The 12 were members of Russian military intelligence, known as the GRU, and are accused of engaging in a sustained effort to hack the computer networks of Democratic organizations and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
All 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian federation intelligence agency within the main intelligence directorate of the Russian military, who were acting in "their official capacities."
DOJ says the hacking targeted Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, with the intention to "release that information on the internet under the names DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 and through another entity."
But "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!"
All along , all through the election cycle , during and after it had been pretty well known that with unsecured Clinton servers , leaked emails , lost or misplaced laptops , Hillary's incompetence , her assistants , e mails sent through or to Huma / Anthony Weiner's laptops , ............. The overall corruption of the DNC's actions , Who is totally surprised that the Russians" hacked " DNC e mails ?
There is a huge difference between a criminal breaking into a locked bank vault and stealing millions of dollars and the darned doors not only being "left open " BUT having an open invitation being sent fro the bank itself !
No surprises there !
Question for DNC ? Is this your new leadership ?
Yeah, Trump invited them in, so I see your point...""Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," July 27, 2016.
Listen to yourself ," Russia if you are listening , I hope you're able ......................"
They were missing first weren't they ?So why ?
Shoe box servers ?
That's not me, that's Trump. And I think some people did listen to him. I really don't care why they were missing or if Hillary is crooked or incompetent. We have a president who invited members of a foreign nation to commit a crime against Americans. It's that simple. I never liked Hillary.
But You seriously consider Trumps rhetoric an open invitation to espionage that surely Russia has NEVER even considered before ?
I'd like to sell you a swamp , it's a great land deal .
Um...no, I didn't say Russia had never considered it before. But, it's ok to ask them to commit a crime because they've considered it before? Odd logic.
"Russian GRU officers hacked the website of a state election board and stole information about 500,000 voters," Rosenstein said. "They also hacked into computers of a company that supplied software used to verify voter registration information."
To my knowledge, "I'm dumber than a rock" is no defense for conspiracy, treason and treachery:
"No Collusion , No Conspiracy , No Americans Involved " Rosenstein .
Any Questions ?
I'm curious where this quote is from? Source?
Here's a 7 min 37 second video of the press conference, and I don't hear this quote.https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/02/16/watch_live_deputy_ag_rod_rosenstein_announcement.html
Maybe he states this somewhere else?
The indictment specifically mentions that there are American's involved, even campaign officials.
I do hear Rothenstein state: "There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity." Now, that doesn't mean they did not know, just that there's no allegations in this indictment
Shouldn't we want to know the real story no matter what that story is?
Yea , But Let's all not get bent out of shape ? We can go over there and ask Hillary , she knows !
Oh, sorry. I asked for facts. Carry on with the narrative that pleases you the most I guess.
Your problem is that your news media , the FBI , The DOJ , the Russians , The Clintons and your party have been re-reinventing your re-inventing of "facts " for two years now on this non-existent Russian collusion .
Problem , no one believes the sky is falling anymore .
Oh, huh. So, no discussion here I guess. I just like to stick to facts. If Trump is truly cleared from collusion than that's fine by me, but it seems some people will go to any length to make it true...even make up quotes.
I used a verifiable quote. You clearly have no need for a real conversation about anything. You simply regurgitate partisan hate, even when it doesn't even fit the conversation. Not worth my time..later.
Like facts Hard sun ?
Rosenstein ".... No Americans involved ,..... No actual votes affected......... " , You sir are obviously not walking ,standing or searching anywhere near the truth .
Source ? Rosenstein .
I simply asked for a source, which I didn't get. In fact, I sourced a video where you can actually here Rothenstein state there are Americans involved. If he really said what you quoted him as saying, I'm fine with that. Obviously, you are only fine with things being the way you want them to be.
Rosenstein says the grass is blue..source...the Twilight Zone.
Maybe you should stop worshipping those like this ......
........and remember there is only one reality .
I don't even know who that is. You seriously don't even know what conversation we are having.
First off , If you "........don't know who that is " I don't feel any need to take you seriously at all because you are nowhere near news media informed .
Second , until you get media informed , you really have no place in political and social forums unless of course you are just beginning to get a grasp of political and social issues , in which case I humbly suggest you stick around and you will learn something .
I worked for a DC lobbying firm for over two years, hang in there, take a deep breath and chill..please.
Okay , let's try CNN , white house correspondent ?
The most singly useless member of the news media right next to the bottom feeding layer anyway ?
Trump ----> Stone ----> Julian Assange ----> Wiki-Leaks -----> Vladimir Putin = Conspiracy / Treason / Treachery
"Rosenstein said he briefed the president on the charges this week"
*Btw, "my enemy", "my competitor", me me me...
Okay Obstructionists , Time to come up with Impeach Trump Reason # 156 , ........................This could be the one. ........I mean This could be the one !................
I mean , Right ?
"On or about August 15, 2016, the Conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, received a request for stolen documents from a candidate for the US Congress. The Conspirators responded using the Guccifer 2.0 persona and sent the candidate stolen documents related to the candidate's opponent."
"The Special Counsel’s investigation is ongoing"...
THIS IS THE KIND OF CRAP HUBPAGES LIKES. PURE BS BY MUELLER THE ONE THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, NOT THE RUSSIANS & I'M NOT PC!
I wish the Russians would tell us how corrupt Hillary actually was and give us back her 30,000 highly classified e -mails and the DNC battle plan ; Instead they play on the divisiveness and negative Trumpmania in America .
And many here buy it like its the last donut on earth.
Hillary wasn't corrupt and your seething hatred for her will never be a defense for Mr. Trump's crimes: You'll never hear these words uttered at the Trump Tribunals:
"Mr. Trump, you are innocent of all crimes against humanity because you hate Hillary Clinton":
I just hope Trump cultees can deal with imprisonment or worse for their orange faced charlatan messiah: Pence and many other complicit republicans are gone as well:
Think what you will, but I just hope you're not too attached to the traitor in the white house: If you read Mueller's indictment of the 12 Russian Spies I hope you understand Donny Boy is gone if we still have laws in this country which is very questionable at this dangerous point in time::
