Eleven of the 12 spies named in the indictment are charged with breaking into the DNC and Clinton's campaign. The last is accused of hacking state boards of elections, secretaries of state and companies that provided election software, with the goal of stealing information about hundreds of thousands of voters. And yet, the Mueller team does not believe their efforts influenced the election.
"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There is no allegation that the conspiracy altered the vote count or changed any election result," Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a prepared statement at a press conference.
The Wall Street Journal reported last November that Mueller's team had identified six Russian government officials who were allegedly involved in hacking the DNC and releasing that information to harm the Clinton campaign. Then Mueller then indicted 13 Russian nationals involved with the government-associated Internet Research Agency for allegedly tampering with the election back in February.
