Russians indicted for meddling in 2016 United States election

Russians indicted for meddling in 2016 United States election

On the same day that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump encouraged Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton's emails, a group of Russian military intelligence officers began launching cyberattacks aimed at computer severs used in her personal office, based on an indictment filed by the Department of Justice.

Before bringing aides in to join them in the meeting, Trump said the summit was off to "a very good start for everybody". This was after he tweeted earlier that Washington's "foolishness and stupidity" was the reason for bad relations.

Trump, bent on forging a personal bond with the Kremlin chief despite allegations of Russian meddling in United States politics, went into the summit blaming "stupidity" by his predecessors for plunging ties to their present low.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!".

France win World Cup with 4-2 victory against Croatia
Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic says his team have chosen to relax and not practice ahead of their World Cup final against France . France have been solid in defence throughout the tournament, their thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16 aside.


Friday's indictment was secured by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Moscow's interference in the election and whether President Donald Trump's campaign cooperated with the effort. "It is great to be with you", Trump told Putin, before shaking hands briefly and heading into talks, which are being closely watched around the world. "We are the two great nuclear powers", he said. In the brightest global spotlight side by side with the foreign leader he has most admired for his toughness, Donald Trump looked weak and submissive, incapable of expressing any sort of righteous indignation at even the most blatant bad behavior by Russian Federation. "North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has, I think, never been stronger", Trump said.

But after the talks, both leaders welcomed the meeting as a "good start" and a "very successful" one.

"This is a document that says, 'We have proof beyond a reasonable doubt that these things happened.' You know, in the past Putin has just said, 'Well, these are just charges.' Well, as I say, this is much more than that, and Trump, who undoubtedly has not read the indictment, at least could be briefed enough to put that point in front of Putin".

The indictments of the 12 Russian military officials just days before the meeting offered Trump a clear roadmap for what to discuss with Putin.

Florida beach closed after 2 shark bites in 5 minutes
The Fernandina Beach Fire Department arrived at the scene three minutes after getting reports about the alleged shark attack. The second attack happened about a mile away-to a 17-year-old boy who was wading in the shallow water.


Butina apparently built close ties with the GOP through a gun rights organization, which sources say is the NRA, to advance Russia's interests in America, per the DOJ affadavit.

"It's not just interference in elections that I think has caused this nationalism in Russian Federation", he said. "He feels strongly about the issue and has an interesting idea", Mr. Trump told a joint news conference with Mr. Putin.

"I've not been here too long (as president), it's getting close to two years, but we'll be having an extraordinary relationship, I hope so". "They are another country, they are going to spy on us, do spy on us". Instead, Bush went to Ground Zero in New York City, wrapped his arm around a person searching the rubble for bodies, and clutched a megaphone to declare, "I can hear you!"

Trump has refused to personally commit to the United States refusal to recognise Russia's annexation of Crimea, leaving open the possibility of a climbdown linked to a promise by Putin to somehow rein in Iranian influence in Syria. Asked about the indictments, Putin suggested that Moscow and Washington could jointly conduct the investigation, inviting special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators to come to Russian Federation to interview the 12 people- an idea Trump hailed as an "incredible offer".

Observers have raised concerns about the fact that the leaders will be alone during their first meeting, but for a pair of interpreters, meaning there will be no corroborating witnesses to accurately represent what was said during the conversation.
