Rod Rosenstein expected to announce new indictment in Mueller probe

That put Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge, and he promptly appointed former FBI Director Mueller as special counsel.

The allegation was part of new charges Rosenstein announced against 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking offenses during the 2016 presidential election.

Later, Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta also was embarrassed by the release of his emails.

Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Trump complained anew that the special counsel's investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russian Federation.

Mr Rosenstein said the defendants corresponded with several Americans during the alleged conspiracy, but added there is no allegation that any United States citizen committed a crime.

Schnatter was eventually forced to step down as CEO, but he remained chairman of the board and the face of the brand. The pizza chain saw its shares fall as much as 5.9 percent on Wednesday as the reports about Schnatter emerged.

He has been a frequent target of the commander-in-chief, who has consistently attacked Mueller's investigation as "fake news", "a hoax" and "witch hunt" cooked up by Democrats as an excuse for Clinton's election defeat.

Rosenstein said the hackers stole emails, files, and other documents, accessing the systems by creating fictitious online personas.

"There is no allegation in this indictment that Americans knew they were corresponding with Russian intelligence officers", said Rosenstein, who also noted there is no evidence the alleged hacking had any impact on the election results.

"Our response must not depend on which side was victimized", Rosenstein said.

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 comes as Trump prepares to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in Helsinki next week.

With the charges, Mueller's prosecutors have marked out another Internet pathway they say Russian Federation used to influence the USA election.

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.

The charges were announced on Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
