US punishes Russia for election hacking, ejecting operatives

WASHINGTON The Obama administration struck back at Russia on Thursday for its efforts to influence the 2016 election, ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States and imposing sanctions on Russias two leading intelligence services, including four top officers of the military intelligence unit the White House believes ordered the attacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations.

In a sweeping set of announcements, the United States was also expected to release evidence linking the cyberattacks to computer systems used by Russian intelligence. Taken together, the actions would amount to the strongest American response ever taken to a state-sponsored cyberattack aimed at the United States.

The sanctions were also intended to box in President-elect Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump has consistently cast doubt that the Russian government had anything to do with the hacking of the D.N.C. or other political institutions, saying American intelligence agencies could not be trusted and suggesting that the hacking could have been the work of a 400-pound guy lying in his bed.

Mr. Trump will now have to decide whether to lift the sanctions on the Russian intelligence agencies when he takes office next month, with Republicans in Congress among those calling for a public investigation into Russias actions. Should Mr. Trump do so, it would require him to effectively reject the findings of his intelligence agencies.

Maybe I missed something but has the DNC, Clinton campaign, Podesta or anybody for that matter disputed the authenticity of the released emails? I get it, bad thing to hack another countries emails during an election but, if the truth of the emails is what turned the electorate (if in fact they were so turned), shouldn't that be the issue? It's not that you threw the baseball through the window breaking the glass, it's how you threw the ball.

Obama is just Butt Hurt, He is the Grand SnowFlake. He has proven in 8 years to be an weak leader and has weakened the USA in world power and standing. Now that he is out the door, all he can do is try to make a mess. He has stabbed Israel in the back this week and now he is flaring up issues with Russia. He knows he is out the door and will not have to deal with these issues.

Dumbo bends over backwards to get Syrian refuges into the USA and with possible ties to ISIS

Dumbo passes executive action to let illegal aliens get work permits and be free from deportation

So glad this idiot only has a few more days left in the Whitehouse,  I hope Trump can tie him back to the DNC scandal and have him jailed along with Hillary.

Trump is gonna have to clean up a lot of mess that Dumbo is leaving behind
