The White House is said to be planning to punish the Russians for their interference in the election prior to President Obama leaving office, according to The Washington Post.
With the clock ticking, the White House is working on adapting the authority to punish the Russians, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. President Obama last week pledged there would be a response to Moscow’s interference in the U.S. elections.
Honestly, this feels like too little too late. Russia accomplished its goal of electing Donald Trump as President. Given that this was known prior to the election to both Democrats and Republicans, it is likely that the Russians are now laughing at this pathetic attempt to do something.
