Twitter suspends 2 accounts linked to Russian intelligence after hacking indictment

Stone also told CNN that he does not believe that the indictment refers to him.

The 29-page indictment says the conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, wrote, "thank u for writing back.do u find anyt [h] ing interesting in the docs i posted?"

"I think it is bad news for Roger Stone that his interaction with Guccifer 2.0 was recited in the indictment even though he was not named in the indictment", Mitchell Epner, a former federal prosecutor who is now at the law firm Rottenberg Lipman Rich, told ABC News on Friday.

Buried in today's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for their role in hacking the DNC and Clinton campaign, is a small paragraph which clearly implicates a 2016 Congressional candidate.

"Please tell me if i can help u anyhow...it would be a great pleasure to me, '" the message said.

"I certainly acknowledge that I was in touch with Trump campaign officials, and I have testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee that I certainly had a 24-word exchange with the persona Guccifer 2.0 over Twitter direct messages", Stone said in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"This exchange is entirely public and provides no evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone else in the alleged hacking of the DNC emails, as well as taking place many weeks after the events described in today's indictment", Stone said. Trump asked Russian Federation to hack his opponent, and Russian Federation did "f$3 or the first time", as the indictment says.

Immigrant Toddlers Reunited With Families, US Officials Say
The separations - which also involve "under 3,000" older children - have sparked worldwide outrage and considerable confusion. Of 103 children younger than 5 who were covered by the court case, 57 had been reunited as of 7 a.m., officials said.

At this time, the Mueller indictment indicated that only one reporter was directly contacted by Russian intelligence about access to stolen documents.

Trump told the Washington Post he chose to terminate Stone, "because he no longer serves a useful function for my campaign".

Stone has said there is no proof the account was connected to the Russians.

These Russians created internet personas-Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks-which falsely claimed to be a lone Romanian hacker and a website started by a group of American hackers, respectively.

Nunberg added that he thought Stone is "a critical piece for Bob Mueller". There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime.

Stone has also admitted to communicating with WikiLeaks' Julian Assange, who published the leaked DNC emails.

Mueller's team claimed the Russians posed as Guccifer and "communicated with US persons about the release of stolen documents", though Stone is not named in the 29-page indictment.
