December 30, 2016 – US Sanctions Russia, Expels 35 Russian Diplomats For Hacking Hillary Clinton’s Email & The Presidential Election

The 35 Russian diplomats accused of taking part in the hacks against the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign have been expelled from the United States.

The Russian Diplomats from the Washington DC embassy and the consulate in San Francisco were given 72 hours to leave the US with their families.

This tough move follows calls from Senior US senators to place a sanction on the Russian diplomats who allegedly played a major role in the hacking, which some lawmakers called America’s “political Pearl Harbor”.

The expelled diplomats were believed to have interfered in the November 8 2016 US Presidential election that gave Republican candidate Donald Trump lead in key Democratic states.

President Obama vowed to take action against Russia even as the country continues to deny any involvement.

Shortly after the strong move by the US, Russian Embassy in the UK took to Twitter to call Obama a lame duck.

  1. President Obama has been acting irrationally and in a very furious way just because American people rejected his third term agenda of Hillary Clinton. Everything that Obama administration has been doing since the shameful and disgraceful defeat of Hillary and Democratic party election and the huge loses at both state and federal is to redicules Donald John Trump as the incoming 45th president of the United States. First, they claimed that Russia was behind the DNC attack, what about their dumb recount effort that asually backfired? What about FBI Comey effect? What blaming the electorate calculation that have been around since the independence? That is a typical behavior of a sore losers that will blame everything or everyone but not themselves. What was his response to the China, Iran, and North Korea hikes? Nothing. Obama wants to pay back his core enemies like the state of Israel with the UN resolution, punish Russia now to create mistrust and misunderstanding since Trump intention was to work with that Super Power. Barracks Hussein Obama will try to cause as much damage as he could to put Donald Trump in a difficult position in term of American International relations. He is the saddest man on planet earth because his worse enemy who dear asked for his birth certificate will eventually take over from him comega January, 2017. Watch out Americans, Isreal, and Christians, Obama will use the remaining 20 days to make things difficult for Trump. But the good news is that God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the Only One of Isreal appointed Donald John Trump to uproot all Islamic agenda of Obama in the last eight years. Donald Trump will be a very successful president of the United States BECAUSE he was chosen by Jehovah-God Almighty. Shilom!

  2. an investigation was carried out and it came out that Russians hacked US elections and this was inside Job, it was not hacked from Russian as country but by Russians in US. lets see if Trump will recall those guys.

  3. HACKING IS A SERIOUS CRIME AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH. IF YOU REALLY FOUND SOME HACKERS, WHY NOT GET THEM ARRESTED AND CHARGE THEM? WHY GIVING THEM SAFE LANDING BY EXPELLING THEM? THIS STORY GET AS E BE OOO!

  5. Russia is an aggressive country with more advanced hacking system in the world. Unfortunately the US has the edge above Russia in tech and that was why they were able to track and detect the provocative and meddling involvement of Russia in their electoral system that brought Donald Trump to power. The world knew something definitely went wrong with US election this time. It was seriously manipulated by Kremlin hacking agencies in Russia and their representatives in US. They’ve been exposed already. Russia should be meant to pay heavily for their intrusion into foreign election.

  6. Wow! this hacking issue will bring to question the credibility of Trump’s Administration. As for the expelled Russians…well they have immunity as diplomats. In all the free world is no more free world right?

    If this happens in Africa am sure some powerful countries will be the first to cry foul and reject the outcome of the so-called election. But who says ‘movement of change’ is bad for the global economy? Wetin i dey i do? i dey look and laugh hahaha huhuhu ayakata….Just remembered Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
