The Justice Department's indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence agents on Friday was jaw-dropping in its scope and level of details into attempts to influence the 2016 United States presidential election.

On or around that day, according to the indictment, which was announced Friday, Russian actors sent phishing emails to accounts at a domain used by Clinton's personal office.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments Friday, accusing the Russian intelligence officials of waging a sophisticated cyber operation to hack into emails of the Democratic National Committee, the campaign arm of the House Democrats and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta. The Russians hit more than 300 people connected to the Clinton campaign and Democratic political groups.

Stone was an adviser to Trump during the campaign and has clearly been investigated by Mueller's team and the grand jury, after several of his business associates received requests for documents or to testify before the grand jury.

Stone maintained that the exchange was benign in his interview with CNN, and acknowledged he was in contact with Trump campaign officials.

In February, Mueller charged 13 Russians and three Russian companies in an elaborate conspiracy to interfere in the election.

The hackers then laundered the pilfered material through fake personas called DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, as well as others, to try to influence voters.

The dates and content of the messages described in the indictment between the USA person in regular contact with senior members of Trump's presidential campaign and Guccifer 2.0 match verbatim two screenshots Stone published on his website in March of 2017 of the direct message exchange he had with Guccifer 2.0 on Twitter in 2016.

"The internet allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways", Rosenstein said. "Time for Mueller to end this pursuit of the President and say President Trump is completely innocent", Giuliani said. "President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won´t interfere in future elections", Schumer said in a statement.

"According to the allegations in the indictment, the defendants worked for two units of the main intelligence directorate of the Russian general staff, known as the GRU".

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question, and hopefully we´ll have a good relationship with Russian Federation", he told a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

In particular, emails between Guccifer 2 and the organization believed to be WikiLeaks "suggest that the NSA (US National Security Agency) obtained access to either Guccifer 2's email account, Wikileaks' or both".

The White House seized on those points in a statement that offered no condemnation of Russian election interference. "This exchange is entirely public and provides no evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone else in the alleged hacking of the DNC emails". The defendants also used a third entity to release the stolen information.
