Obama: I Told Putin to ‘Cut It Out’

1

President Barack Obama says that he ordered Russia’s Vladimir Putin to “cut it out” in a conversation about email hacking ahead of the US election, BBC reports.

Implying that the Russian president knew about the hacks, Obama said: “Not much happens in Russia without Vladimir Putin.”

The president said he had warned Putin of serious consequences at a summit in September. A month later, the US accused Russia of meddling in its democratic process. Obama’s comments came during his last news conference of the year.

  1. Wow, what a tough guy. I’m sure Barry put dreaded fear into Putin. I’m really going to miss our no nonsense President. Can’t he stay for another 4 years?
