The Russians hit more than 300 people connected to the Clinton campaign and Democratic political groups. They are accused of releasing the stolen emails on the web. Furthermore, the DOJ does not allege that any known Trump campaign officials or volunteers involved with efforts from the Kremlin, and does not indict any Americans with ties to Russian intelligence officers. Trump tweeted, with a swipe at his White House predecessors.
The caller seemed to be a big Trump supporter and went on to say that Clinton "has got illusions of grandeur, and so has her husband".
On Friday, a Grand jury accused the 12 Russian spies hacking into the computer networks of the Democrats in 2016 with the objective of influencing the results of the candidate-Republican Donald trump.

The Kremlin denied anew that it tried to sway the election.

The Russian defendants are not in custody, and it is not clear they will ever appear in the American court, though the Justice Department has recently seen value in indicting foreign hackers in absentia as public deterrence. They also hacked into the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic National Committee, in an operation starting around March 2016. Rosenstein said he briefed Mr. Trump on the indictment earlier this week. "All I can say is, 'Did you? and 'Don't do it again.' All I can do is say it". "The person responded, "(p) retty standard". The messages were released through fictitious personas like DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.
In addition, someone at Wikileaks contacted Guccifer 2.0 before the Democratic National Convention asking for Clinton material, court papers show. "Well, we've just found some witches", Podesta said. The indictment was a monumental development in the ongoing Russia investigation because it marks the first time Mueller has directly pointed a finger at the Russian government for its efforts to meddle in the election.
U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Michigan, is joining other Democrats in demanding that President Trump address Russian interference in the 2016 election when he meets with Vladimir Putin Monday.
But critics argue that Monday's meeting in Helsinki has become a pivotal test of Trump's strength and will to defend election integrity - something they say he has not done so far.More news: Michelle Obama, Ms. Tina Party At On The Road II Tour
