President Barack Obama reportedly told Russian President Vladimir Putin in October that directly interfering with the U.S. election could result in an "armed conflict."

According to NBC News, Obama opted to use the red phone to contact Moscow directly, a communication system that dates back to the Cold War. It's not an actual telephone, but instead sends a secure email message between the two countries.

"International law, including the law for armed conflict, applies to actions in cyberspace," part of the Oct. 31 message read, according to NBC. "We will hold Russia to those standards."

Causing as much trouble for Trump as he can. I am SURE that Putin is well aware of Obama’s anti-American agenda.

Yet the left was once proudly crowing about "our" influence over there?

Bluster?

Those words at that level?

Obama would love to start WWIII. Chaos will usher in the Mahdi.

Only a few weeks to go.....

The media tells me that one of the really big dangers we face is that Trump’s team has a really good working relationship with Russia. Oooooooooooh! Scary!

We’re so much better off with a Boy President who threatens war for cheap political gain.[/s]

You notice the biggest pusher of this myth about “russian hacking” is NBC? All of the more blatant lies have been in the NBC stories.

Great. Just great.

What could possibly go wrong?

So NBC was there to help BamBam ramp up the false narrative that “The Russians” caused Hillary to lose ...... no surprise on that part.

Obama’s globalist masters are angry he didn’t achieve one of their main goals - war with Russia.

This the same Obama that illegally spies on us and has interfered in elections in France, the UK, Australia, Egypt, and destabilized governments in Libya and Syria?

THAT Obama?

This probably just pissed Putin off, but he is clearly not stupd enough to let Obama start something wih one month to go.
He will probably keep doing what he has been; laughing at the dumbell.
