Justice Department Considers Charging Russians For Hacking

(SL) – There are reports that the Justice Department is considering charging Russian government officials with hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computers. “The Wall Street Journal” reports the Department has identified more than a half-dozen Kremlin officials involved in breaching the DNC’s computers during the 2016 presidential campaign. The “Journal” reports investigators have pulled together enough evidence to file charges next year.

On Monday, it came to light that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was told early last year that Russians had compromising information about then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Papadopoulos has told investigators that information was said to include thousands of emails.
