Former Obama administration National Security Council cybersecurity coordinator Michael Daniel confirmed on Wednesday that a "stand down" order was given to counter Russian cyberattacks during the 2016 election.
During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, asked Daniel about a passage in the book Russian Roluette. The passage was about a staffer from Daniel's team, Daniel Prieto, retelling the time that Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice told Daniel and his team to halt their efforts and to "stand down" in countering Russia's cyberattacks.
Daniel was quoted saying to his team that they had to stop working on options to counter the Russian attack: "We've been told to stand down." Prieto is quoted as being "incredulous and in disbelief" and asking, "Why the hell are we standing down?"
Daniel and his team were tasked in developing options to Russia's cyberattacks on the United States. Russian hacked the Democratic National Committee servers in 2015 and into voter registration systems of several U.S. states in 2016.
hey liberals...what's it going to be?
Option 1: Obama told the truth. There could be no impact by the Russians.
Option 2: Russians caused you to loose election. Per Obama, you are not a serious person. Obama must have been a total failure as he not only failed to notice the extent, he ordered a stand down. You wasted your vote on him.
Or consider Option 3: Obama disliked INTENSELY the Clinton's. Staffers said he held a grudge against the Clintons. Its no secret he nearly torpedoed her election early on...and notice he only marginally and lately supported her. So maybe he looked the other way knowing the Russians would dig up all the dirt he knew about the old Sea Hagg?? Get rid of her once and for all....
