Obama Told Putin To "Cut It Out" On Hacking

Tyler Durden's picture

In a roughly 20 minute answer to the pre-vetted and scripted question by an AP reporter, in which Obama was asked what his response to "Russian hacking" would be, Obama said there may be a response however - taking a page of the Trump playbook - he would not reveal what it will be, "just like Putin will not admit he hacked the election." The outgoing president hinted at “offensive capabilities” the U.S. possesses, but spoke broadly about his approach to preventing “some sort of cyber arms race.” His goal, the president said, was to put “some guard rails around the behavior of nations and states and our adversaries so they understand that whatever they do to us we can potentially do to them.”

Asked if Clinton lost because of the hacking, Obama demurred. “I'm going to let all the political pundits in this town have a long discussion about what happened in the election,” he said. But he took a shot at the media, which he has faulted for focusing too much on trivia and pseudo-scandals. “I don't think she was treated fairly during the election. I think the coverage of her and the issues was troubling.” That said, he suggested Hillary's loss was due to the press obsession "with Podesta's risotto recipe", in its daily coverage of the Wikileaks revelations (when in fact, the ratio of coverage of Trump "sex scandals" to Wikileaks emails was about 95% to 5%), lambasting the media for their coverage of the campaign (ignoring that 99% of all newspapers endorsed Hillary).

Obama also explained why he "hadn’t been more vocal" in calling out Russian hacking before the Nov. 8 election. “In this hyper-partisan atmosphere,” he said, noting the charged political environment surrounding the election, “I wanted to make everybody understood we were playing this thing straight.”

Asked if he was letting Russian President Vladimir Putin “get away with” hacking the U.S. election, and whether the issue had overshadowed the presidential transition, Obama pledged continued cooperation with Trump. “There hasn’t been a lot of squabbling. What we’ve said is the facts,” he said, pointing to the intelligence community’s finding that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee. “That shouldn’t be a partisan argument,” he said and finally said that he had taken every possible measure, by telling Putin "to cut it out" on hacking.

"stop it now!"

Obummer is one of history's biggest fags.

As a child, whenever I told my other brother to "cut it out", it had no effect.

However, Putin is a mature adult, not a child, and will surely respond appropriately to this request to "cut it out".

So the President with no Past has told the Russians to stop doing what they have zero evidence of them doing. Loony left strikes again.

And...............................   still no real evidence of any wrong doing.  



What we need now is for Colin Powell to be conned into another incriminating presentation.  That might do the trick.

Unnamed sources in the intelligence world have confirmed Joe's claim that his birth certificate is indeed a fake.

And Vladimir Putin respected Obama's request.

He said, "Okay, fuck you, I'll take Aleppo instead."

I told Obama to "cut it out" 8 years ago, in regard to his lying...It wasn't too effective.

Not sure why this isn't getting more traction.

What is interesting is local Fox covered the hour long presentation, live. Other mainstream, who were in attendance won't talk about it. All this talk of "Russia did it" is a diversion from very incriminating evidence.

Also, ZaGate is weighing heavily on their minds.

@ Draybin: 

I hope these dumbasses in D.C. realize that: 

By fucking around with the election, they're screwing with the largest armed force on Earth. 60M voters came out and voted for Trump...and most of them are pissed-off, disillusioned with the system, and own lots of weapons. 

None of them are buying this "It's Russia's fault" lie. 


froze25's picture

Seriously, no one but the fringe left that still listens to the MSM is buying this, hey CIA you lost the election, the patriots in Army Intelligence won. You are out, you had a good run starting with Bush Sr as VP and till now. Now give it up already.

ThirdWorldDude's picture

Well, if you consider the CIA is somewhat like JungleCat's brother, only much, much meaner, I don't think asking them "nicely" to give it up would do much help.

Please post a picture of her. Will her face sexually excite or sexually depress Putin?

Either way, her face is a vital part of our counter-intelligence efforts. So post it.

As long as Putin gives back my homework i'll forgive him. I had thought the dog ate my homework but it's clear from unnamed but credible annonymous sources from somewhere that Putin took it.
