Skip to comments.Mueller: Russian officers launched leaks website in June 2016

Russian intelligence officers allegedly launched a website in June 2016 to release emails stolen from Clinton campaign officials, special counsel Robert Mueller alleged in an indictment released Friday.
Mueller alleges that the Russian officers initially registered the domain for DCLeaks.com in April 2016, and launched the site [o]n or about June 8, 2016.
Starting in or around June 2016 and continuing through the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the Conspirators used DCLeaks to release emails stolen from individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign, the indictment reads.
The complaint also alleges that officers used the site to release documents stolen in the past, including those from people affiliated with the Republican Party.
The allegations were included in Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian military officers for the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Mueller's investigation into Russian efforts to meddle in the election have focused on a number of other events in the spring and summer of 2016.
One of those events, held June 9, 2016, was the infamous Trump Tower meeting between a Russian lawyer and several top Trump campaign officials.
President Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr. agreed to the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya after British music producer Rob Goldstone told him that Veselnitskaya had damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of Russia and its governments support for Mr. Trump.
If its what you say I love it especially later in the summer, Trump Jr. replied to Goldstone in an email.
Veselnitskaya later reportedly told the Senate Judiciary Committee that she did not work for the Russian government and only met with Trump Jr. to discuss Russian sanctions imposed under the Magnitsky Act.
Despite her testimony, she told NBC News earlier this year that she had worked as an "informant" for the Russian government.
Mueller's indictments released Friday come just days before President Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki for a bilateral summit.
Trump has faced pressure from lawmakers to bring up Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 election when he sits down with Putin on Monday.
Russia has repeatedly denied interfering in the election.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday that Trump was "fully aware" of the latest indictments in the Russia probe ahead of the president's trip to meet Putin.
Why doesn’t this seditious bum (mueller) get indicted?
And the sneaky so-and-so’s made her sell them our uranium, and take $145 million for doing it, and forced Podesta to take their money, and forced Fusion GPS to take their money too. Its awful, I tell you.
What I always wonder, since Uranium One was really Obama’s deal, did he get a share of the $145 million, or was there a separate pot of money for him?
Doesn’t add up.
Why would the Russians want to help America?

“Obama cyber chief confirms ‘stand down’ order against Russian cyberattacks”
Yahoo News Michael Isikoff Chief Investigative Correspondent
I never heard of “dncleaks”. THE TRUTHFUL EMAILS REVEALING THAT THE dnc RIGGED HILLARY’S NOMINATION WAS RELEASED ON wikileaks!! Absolutely true. Are they just making crap up?? Why is Trump still under this sham investigation?
In other words....what the hell did Russia gain by hacking the site...nothing.
It’s the seriousness of the charge that matters. /s
This is deflection from the real hackers, the Pakistans that were employed by Blabbermouth Schultz.
Well I never heard of DCLEAKS either. Were they just posting thing already posted by WIKILEAKS? What is DCLEAKS?
If the Russians actually wanted to interfere in the election, they would have tried their damned best to keep Trump OUT OF OFFICE....
Why didn’t they publish Hillary’s 30,000 “missing” emails?
Because the intelligence value was to high.
OF COURSE they had them, and intended to blackmail her.
These indictments are nothing more than a wag-the-dog reaction to Peter Sturckout’s horrible showing at the congressional hearing yesterday. Bill Clinton bombed aspirin factories to divert attention from his Monica Lewinsky capers.
This is all on the dnc for being so careless, or intentionally so, and allowing foreign nations access.
Podesta’s login password?
hilLIAR’s secret unsecured email server?
This is where the blame belongs. Why not hack total idiots if you’re Russia? Imagine the laffs they had reading this s***
This seems to be a staged/choreographed counter action intended to instill relevance back into the self destructing investigation Mueller has been leading the past year, or so.
A nudge back onto the track of relevance if you will as the elections are only months away, and now is not the time for Russian irrelevance. Heaven forbid.
This is just more of Mueller/Rosenstein’s attack on the Presidency and the electorate.
It was timed to interfere with the Putin meeting.
The fact that foreign intelligence services attempt to interfere with us is old news, and includes virtually every country on Earth, including our so-called “friends” -— Britain comes to mind here.
Every President is advised of that and knows it before talking to anyone from those countries.
So it’s like saying it rains some days.
There’s only one reason they did this, and that was — yet again — to try to undermine the Presidency.
And Rosenstein will keep doing this with a straight face as long as he thinks the Republicans are chumps who will let him get over on them.
That’s too good.
Good one, except that would be Ivan McCainzi.
