BARACK OBAMA Ordered Cyber Chief To “STAND DOWN” Against Russian Cyberattacks

Barack Obama was the type of person that while he was in office as long as anything didn’t affect him personally that he really did not seem to care.

Look at all the breaches of public trust that took place under his watch and you can clearly see that.

They knew exactly what was going on but ignored the opportunity to stop it.

As far back as December of 2015, Obama and his team knew the Russians were possibly the ones hacking the DNC software.

Why are we getting indictments on the 12 Russian Intelligence officials responsible for the hacking three years later?

Oh, and why is the liberal left still trying to connect President Trump and his campaign to the Russian hacking?

Doesn’t quite add up, does it…

Now, we have proof that the Obama team put the proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election aside for when he ordered to stand down his efforts in 2016. 

From 100percentfedup: The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn, that detailed his thwarted efforts to respond to the Russian attack.

From the Russain Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War On America and the Election of Donald Trump book: CIA Director John Brennan was angry.

On Aug. 4, 2016, he was on the phone with Alexander Bortnikov, head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), the intelligence agency that succeeded the KGB.

The phone call was one of their regularly scheduled ones, the main subject once again the horrific civil war in Syria.

By this point, however, Brennan had had it with the Russian spy chief.

For the past few years, Brennan’s pleas for cooperation in defusing the Syrian crisis had gone nowhere.

And after they finished discussing Syria — again with no progress — Brennan brought up two other issues not on the official agenda.

 

First, Brennan raised the problem of Russia’s harassment of U.S. diplomats — an especially pressing matter at Langley after an undercover CIA officer had been beaten outside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow two months earlier.

The continuing mistreatment of U.S. diplomats, Brennan told Bortnikov, was “irresponsible, reckless, intolerable and needed to stop.” And, he pointedly noted, it was Bortnikov’s own FSB “that has been most responsible for this outrageous behavior.”

Then Brennan turned to an even more sensitive issue: Russia’s interference in the American election. Brennan was now aware that at least a year earlier Russian hackers had begun their cyberattack on the Democratic National Committee.

We know you’re doing this, Brennan said to the Russian.

He pointed out that Americans would be enraged to find out Moscow was seeking to subvert the election — and that such an operation could backfire.

Brennan warned Bortnikov that if Russia continued this information warfare, there would be a price to pay. He did not specify the consequences.
