[FULL TITLE] [ ‘Stand down!’ Obama’s orders to national security officials who wanted to hit back at election-meddling Putin revealed ]

A new book, 'Russian Roulette,' details Donald Trump's business ties in Russia and Russia's efforts to meddle in the presidential election

The interference was one of the greatest policy challenges for the outgoing Obama administration

Advisors debated the pros and cons of hitting back at Russia, whether to go public with what they knew, and how to get it to stop

One risk was fueling the chaos intelligence officials believe Russia was trying to sew

Two security advisors prepared a menu of plans for potential counter attacks

National Security Advisor Susan Rice delivered a message: 'Stand down'

Officials were concerned about leaks that could limit President Obama's options

In late 2016, as the extent of Russian election meddling was becoming clear, Obama administration security officials devised plans to hit back at Moscow, only to be shut down.

As they learned more about Russia's efforts to hack emails and even penetrate election systems, Obama security advisors debated the pros and cons of hitting back at Russia, whether to go public with what the administration knew, and how to get Russia to stop.

Two top Russia aides on the National Security Council, Michael Daniel and Celeste Wallander, believed the U.S. needed to strike back forcefully, according to the new book 'Russian Roulette,' by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

I thought Barry told Pooty-Poot to “knock it off” so he did. So what was the “it” that Pooty-Poot “knocked off”?

What a pair.

One spikes the Lewinsky story, and the other spikes his boyfriend’s drink.

Remember, Obama called for the "Russian" report in December, after Trump was elected and wanted it before he left office.

Sounds like a well organized plot doesn't it.

Obama, CLinton and the RINOs covered up every crime,
from murder of witnesses, to the slavery, rape
and organ selling of taken children, to the murder of
SEALS to coverup Obama’s fake take of Osama,
to the coverup Mueller’s treason to arm N.Korea and Iran.

America is waiting. tick tock.

BS.

Hussein ordered the stand-down because White Hat Patriots in government were noticing that the Russkies were ‘meddling’, and Hussein knew they were ‘meddling’ in favor of the Beast.

Which they were. She was already bought and paid for (q.v. Uranium One, &c. &c.).

Does anyone think Putin wanted Trump?!? Heck no! GEOTUS Trump was a pig in a poke. The Beast on the other hand, well, she was already on the payroll of corruption.

MAGA!
Kit.
