Read: Mueller indictment against 12 Russian spies for DNC hack

Special counsel Robert Mueller just released an indictment against 12 Russian intelligence officers.

It comes days before President Trump’s summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Special counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering the 2016 US presidential election.

They are charged with hacking the computer networks of members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They allegedly coordinated to release damaging information in order to sway the election under the names “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0.” However, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told reporters that it’s unclear if their efforts changed the outcome of the election.

In total, the indictment charges 11 spies with conspiracy to commit computer crimes, eight counts of aggravated identity theft, and conspiracy to launder money. Two of the defendants are charged with a separate conspiracy to commit computer crimes.

The indictment comes just days before President Donald Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Trump so far has believed Putin’s denials that his country interfered in the election in any way.

According to Rosenstein, Trump knows about the indictment.
