Fox News: Reports " Using an executive order, President Obama sanctioned the GRU and the FSB -- two of Russia's intelligence services as well as other entities and individuals associated with the GRU.....he hacking came from the Fancy Bear group, believed to be affiliated with the GRU, Russia's military intelligence agency. "
Lets Get Real:
In this action President Obama is supported by the Republicans and Democrats on the Hill, it has been interesting and ironic to see the Democrats become hawks over Russian when they wanted the Nuclear freeze under the great Ronald Reagan. The Obama Administration has gone from wanting a new start with Russia to a Cold War set of views, it will be interesting to see how President Trump deals with Russian after January 20th. It can be argued that he can not keep to his view that the intelligence networks are wrong about Russia, he will have access to ALL the information. One wonders how long this hawkish stand by the Democrats will hold, its full of weak liberals, who will come out and argue that the Democrats have been to hard on Russia.
