This just in. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has just announced the indictment of 12 Russians for hacking the DNC during the 2016 election.

A federal grand jury has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election.

All 12 are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment during a Friday press conference. It stems from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
