Former US President Barack Obama suggests six summer reads five of which have been written by African writers

"Why they didn't do anything with it, especially if it was reported that President Obama was informed of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (about interference in the elections - ed.) in September before the election?" - wrote trump. He made that clear throughout his presidential term and is still doing so, even after leaving the White House.

"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 from the DCCC and DNC", the indictment read.

"Obviously the Russians are responsible for Russian actions", Tapper said this morning.

The White House seized on those points in a statement that offered no condemnation of Russian election interference.

Trump and Putin will meet in Helsinki, Finland. President Trump, hours before the indictment was made public, complained about the Russian Federation investigation hours, saying the "stupidity" was making it "very hard to do something with Russian Federation".

Some Democrats have attempted to persuade Trump to cancel his upcoming meeting with Putin in light of Rosenstein's indictments of the 12 Russians.

The indictment identifies the defendants as officers with Russia's Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU.

He also expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the US and ordered two Russian compounds to be closed.

The Russian defendants are not in custody, and it is not clear they will ever appear in an American court. "I did it. You got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think", he said.

"An attack on one political party should be treated as an attack on all parties".

They then released the stolen information through fake accounts - DC Leaks, Guccifer 2.0, among them - in the weeks before voters went to the polls that November.

The response was nearly identical to Trump's reaction in February to the indictment of 16 Russians accused of carrying out a social media propaganda campaign to influence the 2016 election.

Before Friday, 20 people and three companies had been charged in the investigation. She will plead not guilty to three misdemeanor charges, Avenatti said in a later post on Twitter.
