Russian hackers apparently made their first attempt to breach 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private emails around the same time that then-candidate Donald Trump publicly called on Russia to recover the missing emails from her private server

A new indictment released Friday as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Moscow’s election meddling details the attempts by Russian officials to infiltrate Clinton’s personal emails, her campaign’s emails and other private information belonging to Democratic campaign officials.

One portion of the indictment notes that “on or about July 27, 2016, the Conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton’s personal office. At or around the same time, they also targeted seventy-six email addresses at the domain for the Clinton Campaign.”
