Of the Russian interference - which Trump has repeatedly expressed doubts about - Tapper said, "According to his own justice department, it's not a joke".

The US justice department has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee in the 2016 election.

All 12 of the defendants were connected to GRU, a Russian Federation intelligence agency within the Russian military. They are accused of a sustained cyberattack against Democratic party targets, including its campaign committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign. They used Facebook and Twitter to promote the website.

Later, Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta also was embarrassed by the release of his emails. Rosenstein said that Trump had already been briefed on the indictments earlier in the week.

Thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian companies have also been indicted on conspiracy charges related to the Kremlin's efforts to undermine the results of the 2016 election with false propaganda distributed on Facebook and other social media platforms. He said that Mueller's investigation continues.

There is no indication any of the named defendants are in the United States or countries from which the U.S.is likely to be able to extradite them. The GRU, Rosenstein said, created and controlled the groups D.C. Leaks and Guccifer 2.0. "It's important for the president to know what evidence we have of foreign interference".

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded, with further verification by the Senate intelligence committee, that Russia's active measures were aimed at hurting Clinton and helping Trump.

The announcement came just before President Donald Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Trump said at a news conference Friday near London with British Prime Minister Theresa May that he wasn't going into the meeting with Putin with "high expectations".

Trump has gone back and forth as to what he acknowledges about what took place and cited Russia's official denials about its active measures.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says that Russian intelligence agents stole information on 500,000 US voters after hacking a state USA election board.
