CNN - Politics: Reports " In addition to a fear of sparking a wider cyber-conflict and an attempt to save talks with Russia over Syria, the administration did not want to give Donald Trump reason to cry foul following what they were certain would be a Hillary Clinton victory. "
Lets Get Real:
IN other words the Obama Administration got foreign policy WRONG again, also they did not read the polls correctly, in that every political writers shares the blame. The Russian bear only understands a strong leadership, in President Obama they found a weak leader who thinks he understands everything better than any else, that what comes of getting a Nobel Prize for doing nothing. The Russians of course wanted to see Trump win, he has been soft on Russia, so it will be up to the Obama Administration to place sanctions or cyber attack Russia, they have to be careful, they do not want to start WW3 over a cyber attack.
