Obama Administration Set to Punish Russia for "Election Interference"

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 | Tags: , , , , , Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - The Obama administration is close to announcing a series of measures to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election, including economic sanctions and diplomatic censure, according to U.S. officials.

The administration is still finalizing the details, which also are expected to include covert action that likely will involve cyber operations, the officials said. An announcement on the public elements of the response could come as early as this week.

The sanctions part of the package culminates weeks of debate in the White House about how to revise an executive order from last year meant to give the president authority to respond to cyberattacks from overseas, but which did not originally cover efforts to influence the electoral system.

  1. We are being lied to by the President of the United States. He is trying his darnedest to undermine his successor. I genuinely appreciate how much he exposed the terrible ideas and legacy of the Democrat party.
