Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday that the Department of Justice has indicted an additional 12 Russian agents for “hacking” the 2016 presidential race for the White House.
“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,” writes Fox News. “All 12 are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency.”
Rosenstein’s announcement comes as President Trump wraps up his two-day visit with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II, heading to Helsinki next week to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The indictments follow a previous string of charges earlier this year when the DOJ accused 13 Russian agents and three foreign companies of meddling in the 2016 election.
