Trump says Obama failed to stop Russian hacking in 2016 election

'Man-baby meets evil spy': Helsinki demo greets Trump and Putin (Updated)

'Man-baby meets evil spy': Helsinki demo greets Trump and Putin (Updated)

Trump is set to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, and some lawmakers are calling on the US President to demand Russia turn over the indicted individuals.

He later said he anticipated the encounter with Russian President Vladimir Putin would be the easiest of a series of overseas meetings this past week with European allies and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials.

"It's on", spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

The 29-page document, drafted by a team overseen by special counsel Robert Mueller, says that in the months leading up to the November 2016 election, the Russians used fairly simple methods to steal documents from the Democratic Party and the Clinton Campaign.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who announced the indictments, disappointed the Clinton camp by once again emphatically stating, "There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime".

Mueller did not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking effort or that Americans were knowingly in touch with Russian intelligence officers, and the indictment does not allege that any vote tallies were altered by hacking.

'The use of bitcoin allowed the conspirators to avoid direct relationships with traditional financial institutions, allowing them to evade greater scrutiny of their identities and sources of funds, ' the indictment said.

The Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign may have used data stolen by Russian hackers to make strategic and sudden changes to its television advertising plan in the final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign, a possibility raised by details in Friday's indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence agents suggests. These incidents can be traced back to July 2016 when the DNC revealed that their computer systems had been infiltrated by two different Russian entities known as "Cozy Bear" and "Fancy Bear".

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer urged Trump to cancel the meeting until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections.

Speaking in Britain before the indictments were unveiled, Trump said he would ask Putin about the allegations of election meddling. But Trump also doubled down on his characterization of Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt" that hurts America's relationship with Russian Federation. The Kremlin denies it interfered. The White House seized on those points in a statement that offered no condemnation of the alleged Russian conspiracy.

That's what I saw in the press, but I'm not informed. "His transfer failed in June, but he hasn't been affected by it". Maddock wrote on Twitter : "Fekir met Lyon president at World Cup - pleaded for chance to still join LFC".

"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", it said.

"This is consistent with what we have been saying all along", she added.

"I think it is bad news for Roger Stone that his interaction with Guccifer 2.0 was recited in the indictment even though he was not named in the indictment", Mitchell Epner, a former federal prosecutor who is now at the law firm Rottenberg Lipman Rich, told ABC News on Friday. The Russians are nailed. There was, however, a glaring absence of any condemnation of Russia's action by Trump, despite the fact that his job primarily involves the defense of American sovereignty and democracy'.

The retiring Republican senator also "is hopeful that as the investigation continues, we can do what we need to protect future elections from foreign interference", Whitlock said.

Another unit mate, Captain Nikolay Kozachek, allegedly crafted the X-Agent malware used to hack the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic National Committee networks in April 2016. 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.

Some of the documents and emails were released through a website identified in the indictment only as "Organization 1" - believed to be Julian Assange's WikiLeaks.

Some are questioning why Twitter waited until now to suspend the accounts.

(Never mind that Obama did attempt to issue a bipartisan warning about Russian election interference in the fall of 2016, and was rebuffed by Mitch McConnell.) But this time, it came with a twist.

A senior Trump campaign adviser later told CNBC that Trump "wasn't calling on anyone to intervene, but instead was pushing anyone who has them to hand them over to authorities".
