Former FBI Director, Robert Mueller

(Worthy News) - Special counsel Robert Mueller's report, released Thursday to the public in redacted form, cites substantial evidence showing Russian actors hacked Democratic email accounts and disseminated the thousands of stolen emails via WikiLeaks in 2016.

Thousands of emails were stolen by the Russians from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and other Democratic staffers and associates.

The Mueller report said Russia's Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, or GRU, stole these emails and then distributed them through two GRU-operated fronts — the DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 websites. Mueller further reports “the GRU units transferred many of the documents they stole from the DNC and the chairman of the Clinton Campaign to WikiLeaks.” DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 were the Russian conduits for communication with WikiLeaks, according to Mueller.
