Carl Cannon, Washington bureau chief for RealClearPolitics, said Monday that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerKamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Dem committees win new powers to investigate Trump Schiff says Intel panel will hold 'series' of hearings on Mueller report MORE's indictments of Russian intelligence officers prove that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

"This thing is chapter and verse, man," Cannon told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking."

"The names, what they did, the keystrokes that they used," he added. "You look at this and you think, okay, this is meddling. This is what the Democrats have been saying it is."

Cannon's comments come after Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for their alleged role in hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016. All 12 are members of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency.

Eleven of the individuals were charged with conspiring to hack into networks used by the DNC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), while the 12th person was charged with conspiring to hack into systems used to administer elections.
