"The conspirators covertly monitored the computers of dozens of DCCC and DNC employees, implanted hundreds of files containing malicious computer code, and stole emails and other documents", it said.

Rosenstein said he briefed Trump about the indictment before Friday´s announcement and that the timing was determined by "the facts, the evidence, and the law". The Russians are nailed.

Mr. Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said on Twitter that it was time to end the investigation since "no Americans are involved" in Friday's indictment.

DCLeaks is another pseudonym used by Russian intelligence officers to release damaging information on Clinton's campaign and Democrats in Washington, according to the indictment.

It includes details on how the Russians delivered the hacked e-mails to WikiLeaks, the online anti-secrecy organisation led by Julian Assange that became the main platform for the Russians to display their trove of hacked e-mails.

It also alleges a congressional candidate asked Guccifer 2.0 for stolen documents, which the candidate then received.

Stone, who served briefly as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign in 2015 and then continued to informally advise him, has emphatically denied any contact with Russian Federation or a role in the hacked Democratic emails. "I think they're completely focused on collusion with Russian Federation".

On July 22, 2016, Organization 1 "released over 20,000 emails and other documents stolen from the DNC network by the Conspirators", the indictment said.

"The Russian state has never interfered and has no intention of interfering in the US elections", Mr. Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said on Friday.

In announcing the latest indictment, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein noted that no Americans have been charged with assisting the Russian interference and urged the public not to make assumptions about that part of the investigation.

Mueller's team claimed the Russians posed as Guccifer and "communicated with US persons about the release of stolen documents", though Stone is not named in the 29-page indictment.

"My contact with the campaign in 2016 was Donald Trump".

At the time, people familiar with the probe said the new prosecutors were being brought on board because the case would probably be turned over to the federal prosecutor's office in Washington.

The U.S. homeland security secretary said on Saturday there are no signs that Russian Federation is targeting this year's midterm elections with the same "scale or scope" it targeted the 2016 presidential election. "But I certainly acknowledge that I was in touch with Trump campaign officials, and I have testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee that I certainly had a 24-word exchange with the persona Guccifer 2.0 over Twitter direct messages".

On the morning of July 27, 2016, Trump gave a speech in which he said 'Russia, if you're listening, ' he'd love to get a look at the thousands of emails Clinton had said she deleted from her tenure as secretary of state.

Two months earlier, speaking to a Republican group in Florida on August 8, 2016, Stone said, "I actually have communicated with Assange".
