While President Donald Trump hasn't been a supporter of this probe previously calling it a witch hunt, Rosenstein said that he has been briefed about this indictment earlier this week and "is fully aware of today's actions by the department".

In a stranger-than-fiction twist, President Trump, shown here with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, is slated to meet Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In a statement, Russia's foreign ministry said there was no basis for the charges and said goal of the announcement is to "spoil the atmosphere" before Monday's summit. "This is consistent with what we have been saying all along", said White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters. Clinton and her campaign argue that the emails were personal in nature and not work-related, lamenting that they did not delete the emails after receiving a congressional subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

A few days later after Stone said that, WikiLeaks published emails stolen from Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta. The indictment notes that a candidate for Congress actually requested that Guccifer send him or her stolen documents related to his or her opponent, and that Guccifer complied.

The Russians weren't great at coming up with fake American addresses.

Referring to Mr Mueller's probe, he said: "We do have a political problem where, you know, in the United States we have this stupidity going on".

The computer crimes the Russians face also accuse them of installing malware on Democratic campaign computers. They are accused of releasing the stolen emails on a website, dcleaks.com. Using these methods, the Russians released "tens of thousands of stolen emails and documents".

"The defendants falsely claimed DCLeaks was American and that Guccifer 2.0 was a sole Romanian hacker", Rosenstein said.

The wreckage of what Robert Mueller's team says were Russian strikes on the United States can be measured in damaged reputations and disrupted politics.

It has been more than a year since the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation began. The charge that Russians carried out the email theft is not a terribly surprising one, nor does it by itself suggest serious legal jeopardy for President Trump or his associates.

The document also noted that at least one person on Trump's campaign staff had contact with the hackers in the lead-up to the election.

Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is in jail in Alexandria, Va., awaiting trial later this month on financial fraud charges stemming from activities that pre-dated the Trump campaign. The 20 are four former Trump campaign and White House aides, three of whom have pleaded guilty to different crimes and agreed to co-operate, and 13 Russians accused of participating in a hidden but powerful social media campaign to sway US public opinion in the 2016 election. All agreed to cooperate with the special counsel's office, but Papadopoulos' cooperation is likely to come to an end in September when he is sentenced.
