mClearly unbothered by the lack of any evidence, and/or proof that Russia was indeed behind the “hacking” of the US elections as the government has alleged, outgoing president Obama who clears out of the White House in just over three weeks, issued the following statement in response to “Russian Malicious Cyber Activity and Harassment”

Statement by the President on Actions in Response to Russian Malicious Cyber Activity and  Harassment

Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response to the Russian government’s aggressive harassment of U.S. officials and cyber operations aimed at the U.S. election. These actions follow repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.

All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions. In October, my Administration publicized our assessment that Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process. These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government. Moreover, our diplomats have experienced an unacceptable level of harassment in Moscow by Russian security services and police over the last year. Such activities have consequences. Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response.

I have issued an executive order that provides additional authority for responding to certain cyber activity that seeks to interfere with or undermine our election processes and institutions, or those of our allies or partners. Using this new authority, I have sanctioned nine entities and individuals: the GRU and the FSB, two Russian intelligence services; four individual officers of the GRU; and three companies that provided material support to the GRU’s cyber operations. In addition, the Secretary of the Treasury is designating two Russian individuals for using cyber-enabled means to cause misappropriation of funds and personal identifying information. The State Department is also shutting down two Russian compounds, in Maryland and New York, used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes, and is declaring “persona non grata” 35 Russian intelligence operatives. Finally, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are releasing declassified technical information on Russian civilian and military intelligence service cyber activity, to help network defenders in the United States and abroad identify, detect, and disrupt Russia’s global campaign of malicious cyber activities.

These actions are not the sum total of our response to Russia’s aggressive activities. We will continue to take a variety of actions at a time and place of our choosing, some of which will not be publicized. In addition to holding Russia accountable for what it has done, the United States and friends and allies around the world must work together to oppose Russia’s efforts to undermine established international norms of behavior, and interfere with democratic governance. To that end, my Administration will be providing a report to Congress in the coming days about Russia’s efforts to interfere in our election, as well as malicious cyber activity related to our election cycle in previous elections.

    It’s been a while since this first came out. I guess that it takes some time to manufacture even slightly credible evidence. It’s no wonder that these idiots specialize in worming their way into government because it is clear that they either could not survive on their own or they would not be able to avail themselves of the very high living standard to which their supposedly exalted political rank supposedly entitles them. Back in the day, grifters such as these would receive everything they had coming… and it usually started with a boot up their butts.

    First, they will use this tactic to cast doubt on Trump’s legitimacy as elected president.

    Second, if Trump reverses the sanctions then they will say: “See, he is colluding with the Russians!” “We knew it all the time!” Without producing any concrete proof of election tampering… of course.

    Trump should just say Fuck-Off you whiners… I’m the president and tough tamales if you do not like it.
