A 36 page document from the US government indicts 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies for interfering in the US election. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has said that the indictment does not make any allegations that this supposed interference did not have any effect in the 2016 US election. So I don’t know why they are making a big deal about this? It just seems that this all one big distraction to get Americans arguing. Soon this story will be entirely forgotten.
Deputy AG Rosenstein: "There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the [Russians'] conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." https://t.co/oShWvKYDRW pic.twitter.com/IPXvuJDudg

According to one report from Fox News:
A federal grand jury on Friday indicted 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election, in a case brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that detailed a sophisticated plot to wage “information warfare” against the U.S.
The Russian nationals are accused of setting a “strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election.”
