Mueller Trying To Sabotage Trump-Putin Summit – Indicts 12 Russians Ahead Of Meeting [Video]
President Trump’s upcoming summit with Putin could be severely hindered by the Meuller probe. Currently, Trump is working to strengthen the relationship between the two Nations. Which is highly important if the U.S. is going to get Russia to cooperate in stabilizing Syria.
According to The Washington Examiner, Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted Russian intelligence operatives for the 2016 election interference to sabotage President Trump’s upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Russian diplomats.
“Obviously, the goal of this ‘mud-slinging’ is to spoil the atmosphere before the Russian-American summit,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday, per Sputnik, a state-run media outlet.
Mueller, a former FBI director, accused 12 Russian military intelligence officers of conducting a cyber espionage campaign to steal and publish internal Democratic party emails throughout the 2016 election season. The Russian government conducted the cyberattacks to “stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” the court documents say.
“The timing is a function of the collection of the facts, the evidence, the law and a determination that it was sufficient to present the indictment at this time,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee who established the Mueller probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, said Friday.

Several Trump allies said they welcomed tough action against Russian election meddlers. “This is good stuff. This is what they ought to be doing,” said Trump’s personal lawyer John Dowd, who has often criticized Mueller’s focus on Trump and his associates.
But appearing next to British Prime Minister Theresa May outside London hours before the indictment was publicly unveiled, Trump had complained that the Mueller probe has complicated his effort to befriend the Russian leader.
“I think that really hurts our country and it really hurts our relationship with Russia,” he said. “I think that we would have a chance to have a very good relationship with Russia and a very good chance—a very good relationship with President Putin. I would hope so.”
