US to Retaliate Russian DNC Hack, Will Hit Russia with "Proportional" Response

The White House on Tuesday vowed a 'proportional' response for Russian DNC Hack — Intelligence officials say files were leaked to interfere with outcome of presidential election. Carol Lee and Damian Paletta reporting this evening in the Wall Street Journal: "The White House vowed to hit Russia with a 'proportional' response after the conclusion by U.S. intelligence officials that Moscow hacked into emails from the Democratic National Committee and other organizations, then leaked thousands of files to interfere with the outcome of the presidential election. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that President Barack Obama is considering 'a range of responses' but isn't likely to announce one in advance."

"The president has talked before about the significant capabilities that the U.S. government has to both defend our systems in the United States but also carry out offensive operations in other countries. ... We obviously will ensure that our response is proportional." –Josh Earnest
