Six members of the Russian government are accused of hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s computer during the 2016 presidential election.

The Justice Department has collected enough evidence to produce charges next year, two people familiar with the investigation told the Wall Street Journal.

Allegations that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia have prompted a very active, widening special counsel investigation that has already netted charges against three Trump aides.

One former aide, George Papadopoulos, is cooperating with authorities after he was accused of setting up a meeting with Russian officials who had “dirt” and thousands of emails on Hillary Clinton

George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Trump, is the first campaign aide to plead guilty as part of the special counsel’s widening investigation into possible collusion between the president’s associates and the Russian government.

Papadopoulos, 30, who admitted to lying to FBI agents, is also the first aide reach a plea agreement in exchange for cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The young Greek-American, whom Trump called an “excellent guy” in a March 2016 interview with the Washington Post, was part of a plot to secure a meeting between the future president and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Guardian reports

In April 2016, Papadopoulos met with a mysterious London professor who claimed to have “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails.”

The potentially game-changing development was announced on the same day Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and adviser Rick Gates surrendered to the FBI and were indicted on numerous charges, including conspiracy, money-laundering and foreign lobbying violations.
