Agence France Presse reports that “a plane carrying 35 diplomats expelled from the United States over Russia’s alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election arrived in Moscow early Monday, Russian state television reported.”

“A Russian Il-96 plane carrying the diplomats and their families landed at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport at 2:05 am local time after having taken off from Washington on Sunday, state television said.”

“U.S. intelligence says the Kremlin ordered a hack-and-release of Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton campaign staff emails in a bid to put Donald Trump in the White House.”
