President Obama plans to respond to Russia’s hacking


WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration is accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of personally authorizing the hacking of Democratic officials’ email accounts leading up to the U.S. presidential election, and they say it’s a “fact” that such actions helped Donald Trump’s campaign.

The White House also says Trump must have known of Russia’s interference. The Kremlin is calling the allegation “laughable nonsense.”

But President Barack Obama tells NPR News anytime a foreign government tries to interfere in U.S. elections, the nation must take action – “and we will.”
