Mueller accuses 12 Russians of hacking the Hillary campaign

The indictment was announced at nearly exactly the moment that Trump rolled into the quadrangle of Windsor Castle to meet the awaiting Queen Elizabeth II in the symbolic highpoint of his visit to Britain.

None of the charges allege Trump advisers colluded with Russian Federation to interfere with the presidential campaign. Clinton and her campaign argue that the emails were personal in nature and not work-related, lamenting that they did not delete the emails after receiving a congressional subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

"Today's charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and no allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result".

The charges come as Mueller continues to investigate potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election. The messages were released through fictitious personas like DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.

Mr Rosenstein said the defendants corresponded with several Americans during the alleged conspiracy, but added there is no allegation that any U.S. citizen committed a crime.

Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Trump complained anew that the special counsel's investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russian Federation.

Sen. Mark Warner, the Democratic vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Mr. Trump should not meet with Putin one-on-one.

About 20 injured in South Africa charter plane crash
Paramedics helped survivors out of the aircraft and treated patients at the scene as firefighters tackled the smoking wreckage. Earlier, reports emerged that 20 people had been injured after a plane, marked Martin's Air Charter, crashed at the airport.

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press", Trump said in a July 27, 2016 news conference.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's wide-net Russian Federation investigation has officially resulted in 191 criminal charges against 35 defendants, and that count may only rise.

That evening, the indictment says, the Russians attempted to break into email accounts used by Clinton's personal office, along with 76 Clinton campaign email addresses.

Asked by a reporter about the president's claims that the investigation is a witch hunt, Rosenstein said, "I only comment on the evidence".

By June 2016, the defendants began planning the release of tens of thousands of stolen emails and documents, the indictment alleges. But with Mueller still investigating, it's not known whether further indictments are taking shape or will. And they communicated with someone who was "in regular contact" with Mr. Trump's campaign to offer "help".

President Donald Trump (R) and Russia's President Vladimir Putin talk as they make their way to take the "family photo" during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' summit in the central Vietnamese city of Danang on November 11, 2017. Was the plan to approach Team Trump with the material if they succeeded in uncovering it?

"President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression", Republican Senator John McCain said in a statement.
