DOJ: Russian Government Officials Could Be Charged for DNC Hack

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

U.S. Blasts Russia for Granting Asylum to NSA Leaker Edward Snowden

The U.S. government has expressed deep disappointment over Russia’s decision to grant asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden, the BBC reports.

The White House is considering a number of moves to express that disappointment, including canceling a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“We’re extremely disappointed that the Russian government would take this step despite our very clear and lawful requests in public and in private to have Mr Snowden expelled to the United States to face the charges against him,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “We’re evaluating the utility of a summit in light of this and other issues.”

Snowden walked out of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport Thursday with a gray shirt and a dark backpack, the Guardian reported.

“The Snowden story has exposed the impotence of 21st-century US power,” the Guardian wrote.

NSA leader Edward Snowden issued a hand-scrawled application for temporary asylum in Russia, and his lawyer said he could soon walk out of Sheremetyevo airport, The Christian Science Monitor reports.

“The question of giving him temporary asylum won’t take more than a week. I think that in the near future he will have the possibility to leave the Sheremetyevo transit zone,” the independent Interfax agency quoted the lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, as saying.

Although Russian President Vladimir Putin had appeared reluctant to help Snowden, The Christian Science Monitor wrote that the president appears to be resigned to the idea.

“As I understand it, Snowden didn’t aim to spend his whole life in Russia. I don’t understand how a young man decided to do what he did, but it’s his choice,” Putin said.

NSA Leaker may have plans to soon leave the Moscow airport where he has been stuck in legal limbo, the USA Today reports.

A lawyer assisting Snowden is helping him apply for temporary asylum in Russia. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Snowden has been advised not to do anything that would jeopardize Russian-U.S. relations, the USA Today wrote.

“We have warned Mr. Snowden that any actions by him connected with harming Russian-American relations are unacceptable,” Putin said.

It’s unclear where Snowden plans to go once he leaves the airport.
