Obama_ I told Putin to 'cut out' the hacking
In his final press conference of the year, President Barack Obama has said that he had told President Vladimir Putin to “cut it out” following allegations that Russia conducted cyber attacks against the United States.
“What I was concerned about in particular was making sure [the hack of the Democratic National Convention] wasn't compounded by potential hacking that could hamper vote counting, affect the actual election process itself,” the president said of his September meeting with his Russian counterpart.
He also said that his conversation prevented any further hacking against his country’s election infrastructure.
“So in early September when I saw president Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out and there were going to be serious consequences if he didn't. And in fact, we did not see further tampering of the election process—but the leaks... had already occurred."
