Pompeo Says Russia Was Behind Cyberattack on U.S.

When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a conservative radio show host on Friday, almost as an aside, that “we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians” behind the vast hack of the federal government and American industry, he put the Trump administration on record for the first time blaming the Kremlin for a cybersecurity breach on a scale Washington has never seen before.

But with 30 days left in office, national security officials say they are all but certain to hand off the sensitive issue of how to respond to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. And that seemed especially clear on Saturday, when President Trump sought to minimize the importance of the hack, insisting that “everything is well under control” and suggesting that it might have been China rather than Russia that carried it out.

Mr. Trump even sought, with no evidence, to link the hack to his loss in the election. “There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA,” he wrote on Twitter, tagging Mr. Pompeo in his remarks.

In fact, the election system, spread across 50 states, appears to have been unaffected by the attack, which was focused on federal agencies and the country’s biggest companies.



When are his supporters going to realize that Trump is a tool of Russia. Whether they've got something on his, or whether he owes them money or whether he's trying to curry favor so that they forgive his loans, I don't know. But it's clear he gives deference to Russia like no other country.

Oh no!! This means that Pompeo probably negated his predetermined Xmas pardon from boss Santa Trump. A lump of tweet for you this holiday season dear sir.
