The special prosecutor of Russian plot, Robert Mueller, charged this Friday to 12 officers of Russian military intelligence agency accused of stealing and disseminating Democratic Party documents and Hillary Clinton campaign with "intent to interfere" in Presidential elections of 2016, according to deputy attorney General of United States, Rod Rosenstein. They are also accused of stealing information from 500,000 voters but re is no evidence that efforts of Russian agents "affected outcome" of elections won by Republican Donald Trump.
The new imputation is known just three days before President Trump's meeting in Finland with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin. Trump has been trying to disqualify Mueller's research for months, investigating wher re was coordination between Trump team and Russia. The president claims to suffer a "witch hunt", as he repeated this Friday in United Kingdom. And he has avoided emphatically admitting American intelligence agencies ' conclusion that Moscow has interfered with 2016 election campaign in order to help him win election.
There are 11 counts of computer crimes, and eight of identity ft and money laundering. Two or defendants are also charged with computer crimes. The agents of GRU, Russian Military Intelligence Branch, created two false profiles on Twitter with which y communicated with American citizens. But Rosenstein insisted on a relevant nuance, which now rules out possibility of clear coordination between Russian and American citizens: "There is no allegation that re were Americans who knew y were talking to Russian officers. There is no allegation that an American citizen commits a crime. "
So far, in its first year of research, Mueller has filed charges against 34 people and companies, has condemned one, has interrogated much of Trump's environment, has confirmed Russian intrusion, and has made three former advisers of president to declare Guilty and cooperate with investigation.Share in Facebook share on Twitter OtrosCerrarCompartir at LinkedinCompartir on GooglePlusCompartir on Pinterest more information
