Obama administration plans to retaliate for Russian hacking

Posted By on Wed, Dec 28, 2016 at 2:27 PM

The Obama administration said today that it plans retaliatory measures against Russia for its cyber meddling in U.S. elections.

This could sanctions and diplomatic measures and there's some promise of release of specific information to demonstrate Russian involvement in hacking of Democratic e-mail and involvement in a campaign against Hillary Clinton's election.

With less than a month left in the Obama administration, you have to wonder about the vigor with which the Trump administration, notably friendly to Russia and Vladimir Putin, continues this effort.

Russia, naturally, says it will respond in kind.
