New Evidence: Obama tried to prevent Putin effecting elections

New Land Mark article in Washington Post:
 abstract of this article in CBS This Morning
| "According to a Washington Post investigation, in August the CIA gave then-President Obama a report that "detailed Russian President Vladimir Putin's direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race." The article's co-author, Greg Miller, joins "CBS This Morning" from Washington to discuss why Obama administration officials did not respond to the report and their regrets on the handling of the information."[1]
Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides.Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and help elect her opponent, Donald Trump.[2]
