Obama: US Will Act Against Russia for Email Hacking1 奥巴马:美国将采取行动反对俄罗斯电子邮件黑客

President Barack Obama says the United States will take action against Russia for carrying out cyberattacks during the U.S. election.


Obama said any time it is proven that a foreign government tried to influence the “integrity” of U.S. elections,officials “need to take action… and we will.”He made the comments during an interview with National Public Radio released Friday.

奥巴马说无论在任何时候,如果其他国家试图影响美国选举的“完整性”,美国官员“需采取行动...并且会采取行动。” 周五,他在接受全国公共广播电台的采访时做出了评论。

Obama also spoke2 to reporters about the issue during a press conference Friday at the White House.He said U.S. intelligence agencies have investigated the issue and found that Russia was responsible for leaking emails of U.S. people and political institutions.


Thousands of emails were leaked from the Democratic National Committee last July.The emails contained private information about committee activities.Private emails from a top campaign adviser3 to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were also leaked.


Some of the details were considered embarrassing for Clinton and the Democratic Party.


Obama said he even brought up the issue when he saw Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G-20 meeting in China in September.He said he told Putin to “cut it out.”


Obama said he wanted to speak directly to Putin to let him know there would be “serious consequences” if the leaks did not stop.“We did not see further tampering5 of the election process,” he said.But Obama noted6 that, at that time, the leaks were already public and could no longer be stopped.


Obama said he thinks his administration handled the leaks correctly by making them public.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a statement on the leaks in October.


The statement accused the Russian government of “directing” the leaks involving U.S. people and “political organizations.”It said the stolen information was intended to interfere7 with the U.S. election process.


The statement added that top Russian officials must have authorized9 the activities.


“And then we allowed you, and the American public, to make an assessment10 as to how to weigh that going into the election.”


Obama said the United States had not yet decided11 how to answer the Russian actions.


“Our goal continues to be to send a clear message to Russia, or others, not to do this to us.Because we can do stuff to you.But it is also important for us to do that in a thoughtful, methodical way.”


He added that the U.S. response might be handled in a private way.Obama noted that U.S. relations with Russia had already declined in recent years over several issues.He said the U.S. currently has many sanctions in place against Moscow.


“So how we approach an appropriate response that increases costs for them for behavior like this in the future—but does not create problems for us—is something that’s worth taking the time to think through and figure out.”


Russian officials have repeatedly denied any involvement in activities intended to influence the U.S. elections.They have also urged U.S. officials to make public any evidence they have.


Both Republicans and Democrats12 in the U.S. Congress have called for investigations13 into possible Russian influence in the election.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin have called for full investigations into the election.


U.S. President-elect Donald Trump14 has rejected suggestions by intelligence agencies that Russia carried out cyberattacks to help him win the election.


On Thursday, Trump again raised questions about the accusations15 on Twitter.


“If Russia, or some other entity16, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act?Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?” he wrote.
