Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein has just concluded a press conferenceannouncing the grand jury indictment obtained by Special Counsel Robert Mueller charging 12 Russian military officers with hacking into the Democratic National Committee to sabotage the 2016 presidential election.
Members of the House Freedom Caucus moved a step closer to that on Friday, around the same time Rosenstein was announcing new indictments against a dozen Russian intelligence officers who interfered in the 2016 USA presidential election, Politico reported on Friday.
He also said the Russian defendants infiltrated computers at USA state boards of election and secretaries of state, plus software suppliers whose products help election officials verify voter registration data.
According to the indictment, the defendants, who are all members of the Russian intelligence arm GRU, attempted to interfere with the 2016 election by spear phishing volunteers and employees working for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Mr Rosenstein said he had briefed Mr Trump about the indictment before today's announcement and that there was no allegation that U.S. citizens were involved in the alleged crimes.
Trump, who is now visiting Britain, is scheduled to meet with Putin in Helsinki on Monday.
"The internet allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways", Rosenstein said. Poltico reports on the press conference and indictment here. With that said, there is a chance this information may have been used during the primaries between same-party candidates as well, but with primaries nearly over in most states by the August 15 date cited in the indictment, this seems less likely.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the indictments are "further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win". "There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime". In February, the attorney general's office charged 13 Russians and three companies with trying to interfere with the United States elections. The indictment does not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking efforts or that any American was knowingly in contact with Russian intelligence officers. "We know that the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the election", he told BBC.
If the Russian Federation probe is a "witch hunt", then Robert Mueller is a goddamn Ghostbuster.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry is looking into alleged Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 election.
The charges are part of the ongoing special counsel probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
The Russian operatives, under the Guccifer 2.0 persona, responded and sent the candidate stolen documents. The president said he will ask Putin during the meeting if Russian Federation interfered with the election. Once inside the Democratic computers, they searched for keywords like "Hillary", (then-GOP candidate Ted) "Cruz", "Trump" and "Benghazi investigations" so they could steal the most damaging files.
Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is in jail in Alexandria, Va., awaiting trial later this month on financial fraud charges stemming from activities that pre-dated the Trump campaign.
Like the criminal case against 13 Russians and three Russian companies that Robert Mueller's Office opened in February, don't expect these Russian spies-turned-hackers to show their faces before a judge.
Manafort's attorneys have sought to push back his trial until fall, alleging his incarceration has made it hard to communicate. One trial is set for July 25 in Alexandria, Virginia, and the second case in Washington , D.C., has a September 17 trial date.
Cohen also defended the Mueller investigation as a whole, saying, "I respect our nation's intelligence agencies'". Giuliani cited an inspector general report that found a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent on Mr.
