US Charges 12 Russian Intelligence Officers for Hacking DNC, Running DCLeaks

Mueller departs after briefing members of the U.S. Senate on his investigation into potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

Trump is now on a visit to Britain.

Trump apologised to May for the furore over his withering public critique, blaming "fake news" and promising instead a bilateral trade agreement with Britain after it leaves the European Union in March.

That's according to a grand jury indictment Friday charging 12 Russian military intelligence officers with hacking into the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party as part of a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 USA election.

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.

Trump was later seen playing the Turnberry links, several holes of which are visible from a nearby beach, where dozens of people staged a protest picnic Saturday.

He appeared to say something to them.

The weather is attractive, and this place is incredible!

In advance of the planned Finnish summit between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Lindsey Graham warned that the American leader must speak bluntly to the former KGB agent in order to have a "good relationship" between the nations.

In my remarks, I have not identified the victims. Indeed, an indictment that directly points to Russian President Vladimir Putin makes it much more hard for critics to dismiss Russia's culpability in election hacking as unproven. The group also actively targeted and hacked individual members part of the Clinton Campaign, the DOJ said.

Left out from the indictment is how the federal investigators obtained any evidence of this, given that the FBI never got access to the DNC servers. Acosta also replied to Trump on Twitter.

When asked at a news conference on Friday whether he would tell Putin to stay out of USA elections, Trump said "Yes".

The source said the discussion would also be an opportunity for both leaders to draw their positions on the Syrian crisis closer. "I will absolutely bring that up", Trump told reporters. "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press".
