According to the indictment, Russians began hacking 76 different Clinton-associated emails on July 27, 2016. That's the same day that Trump said, during a campaign speech, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing".
Democrats have called on Trump to cancel his upcoming summit with Vladimir Putin over Mueller's indictment. Trump has insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia.
Russian intelligence officers allegedly launched a website in June 2016 to release emails stolen from Clinton campaign officials according to Robert Mueller.
Mueller alleges that the Russian officers initially registered the domain for DCLeaks.com in April 2016, and launched the site “on or about June 8, 2016.”
“Starting in or around June 2016 and continuing through the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the Conspirators used DCLeaks to release emails stolen from individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign,” the indictment reads.

Russia’s foreign ministry said there was no evidence the 12 people indicted were linked to military intelligence or hacked into the computer networks of the U.S. Democratic party.
On their end, the Russian ministry said the indictment was meant to damage the atmosphere before the summit between Putin and Trump in Helsinki on Monday.
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are holding firm that they will hold a joint press conference on Monday following their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki.
The two are set to meet on July 16 as the president seeks to improve relations with Moscow.
