trPresident-elect Donald J. Trump released the following statement following the sanctions against Russia which were announced earlier today by the Obama Administration:

“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”

Meanwhile, the White House says it gave President-elect Donald Trump’s team a heads-up about its plans to sanction Russia for election hacking but President Barack Obama didn’t tell him about it personally.

White House spokesman Eric Schultz says the U.S. notified a “senior member” of Trump’s transition team Thursday before the sanctions were publicly announced.

Obama had spoken to Trump a day earlier by phone while Obama was vacationing in Hawaii.

Trump hasn’t yet commented on the U.S. sanctions targeting Russian intelligence agencies and intelligence operatives.



  1. The Democratic Party leaked the information ! The Russians did not do it. It is a fairy tale- absolutely no evidence that Russia did anything. Meanwhile, Hilary Clinton had all her emails out for the whole world to read free of charge, what a shanda!
