U.S. indicts 13 Russian nationals over 2016 election interference

U.S. Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States, the Department of Justice announced Friday.

The US government said Russian entities began interfering in US political processes as early as 2014, according to a court document.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet Friday that the latest indictment issued by Mueller showed that his presidential campaign “did nothing wrong” during the 2016 election.
