Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced today that a federal grand jury indicted 12 Russians, all officers with Russia’s intelligence agency GRU, for allegedly hacking into the DNC and Hillary’s campaign.

The most important part of Rosenstein’s speech: “There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result.”

So while people on the left and within the resistance may cheer these indictments, it’s just another announcement that has absolutely nothing to do with collusion, which is the main objective of Special Investigator Robert Mueller’s probe.

More than likely these 12 Russians will not even serve a day in jail.

Anyway, the indictment claims that these men leaked emails from the DNC and Hillary Clinton under the names of DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0. They accessed the emails through phishing, which involves tricking people “into disclosing their usernames passwords.” Once they had this information, they used it “to hack into computer networks to install malware and spy on users and capture information.”

Here is the White House response:
