Here's the full indictment from Deputy AG Rosenstein if you'd like to slog through it.
A few quick takeaways:
- A grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for alleged interference in the 2016 election.
- The goal of the Russians was "spreading distrust" about the 2016 candidates and about the American election system.
- No alleged election tampering that altered the outcome of the presidential election.
- Multiple instances of defendants falsifying identities to propagate their version of Operation Chaos.
