Robert Mueller: Russians tried to suppress minority voters in 2016 election

Special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment alleges that Russians tried to convince minorities not to vote in the 2016 election as a means of suppressing Hillary Clinton's support. 

Prosecutors claim that the Russians “began to encourage U.S. minority groups not to vote in the 2016 U.S. presidential election or to vote for a third-party U.S. presidential candidate.”

The Russians created false U.S. personas and stole the identities of real U.S. people in order to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, according to a federal indictment filed today.

Thirteen Russians and three Russian groups were charged Friday for interfering in the 2016 U.S. elections.
